WITH A LOT OF BIG PLAYS, THE GIANTS MADE A LITTLE HISTORY

THE GIANTS BY THE NUMBERS

8 NFL TITLES won by the Giants. In addition to 2011, the Giants were champions in 1927, '34, '38, '56, '86, '90, and 2007. Only the Bears (nine) and the Packers (13) have more titles.

4 STRAIGHT DECADES in which the Giants have won a Super Bowl: the 1980s, '90s, 2000s and '10s—the longest such streak by a franchise.

9 REGULAR-SEASON victories for the 2011 Giants, the fewest for a Super Bowl--winning team. The previous low was 10, for the 1988 49ers and the 2007 Giants.

394 REGULAR-SEASON points scored by the Giants against 400 by their opponents, making New York the first team to win—or even reach—the Super Bowl after being outscored.

7 CAREER ROAD postseason wins for head coach Tom Coughlin (five with the Giants, two with the Jaguars) tying him with Tom Landry for the most in NFL history.

8—3 COUGHLIN'S POSTSEASON record as Giants coach, matching the career playoff mark of Bill Parcells.

1,715 PASSING YARDS (with 15 TDs) in the fourth quarter by Eli Manning, the most by a quarterback in the last two decades. The next highest fourth-quarter passing total is Matt Schaub's 1,372 yards in 2010. Peyton Manning is next in touchdowns with 14 in '02.

130 STRAIGHT STARTS, including the playoffs, for Eli Manning, the longest active streak and third most for an NFL signal-caller behind Brett Favre (321) and Peyton Manning (227).
