ATLANTA (AP) -- Eli Manning made enough good throws to overcome some glaring mistakes. Joey Harrington didn't have much time to do anything.

Eli Manning threw a pair of touchdown passes and set up another New York TD with three straight completions, leading the New York Giants to their fourth straight win, 31-10 over the hapless Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.

Quarterback Eli Manning hooked up with Amani Toomer on a 5-yard scoring pass during a wild first quarter in which the teams combined for 24 points. Before the half was done, Manning went deep for a 43-yard touchdown to Plaxico Burress that gave the Giants (4-2) a 21-10 lead at halftime.

The Giants quarterback threw two interceptions and had another turnover when John Abraham knocked the ball out of his hands just before his arm went forward on an attempted pass. But the way Atlanta (1-5) was playing offense, it didn't matter.
