New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is happy with his side's effort during their 18-136 pre-season win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tom Coughlin has described the New York Giants' effort in their pre-season win over the Pittsburgh Steelers as "very good".

Wide receiver Victor Cruz scored the team's only touchdown in their 18-13 victory at Heinz Field.

The head coach told the Giants' official website: "We found a way to win. We came in with the idea that we'd play everybody and we did. We hung in there when it didn't look very good at the end and found a way to win.

"We played a lot of people. The effort was very good. Some of the defensive kids rose up there at the end. [Rookie quarterback] Ryan Nassib made a play down the field, which got us going and let us run the ball a little bit and get in field goal range there at the end.

"We were okay except with the shotgun snap, which wasn't really something that had been mastered by [tackle] Matt McCants. Overall we came in and had a good effort and won the game. I told the players that's what we came for."

The Giants will play a pre-season game against the Indianapolis Colts next week.
