22 QUARTERBACKS TO start for the other NFC East teams since Manning took over for the Giants in 2004: Eagles (eight), Cowboys and Redskins (seven each).

2 GIANTS DEFENSIVE ENDS who averaged at least a sack per game. Jason Pierre-Paul was fourth in the NFL with 16½ in 16 games, while Osi Umenyiora had nine in nine games.

1,536 RECEIVING YARDS for Victor Cruz, breaking Amani Toomer's Giants record of 1,343 yards set in 2002.

4 OF CRUZ'S nine touchdowns that went for more than 70 yards. The last receiver with as many 70-plus-yard scores in a season was Otis Taylor of the Kansas City Chiefs in 1966.

56 CAREER RUSHING touchdowns by Brandon Jacobs, the most in franchise history. On Dec. 11 against the Cowboys, Jacobs scored twice to pass Tiki Barber's mark of 55 set from 1997 through 2006.
