By Marc A. Greenberg

How many times have you heard this Giants fans: “99 yard touchdown pass.”

Answer: Never.

Eli Manning’s 99 yard TD pass to Victor Cruz during Saturday’s 29-14 Giants victory over the New York Jets was the longest pass play in Giants history. The previous record was a 98-yard pass from Earl Morrall to Homer Jones in 1966.

With 164 receiving yards on Saturday, Cruz now has 1,358 yards, a new Giants single-season record. Amani Toomer previously held the mark, with 1,342 receiving yards in 2002.
