That was the 4th-highest average in Giants history among qualifiers for the league title…Also led the team and was 7th in the NFL with a 10.0-yard average on 34 punt returns, including an 80-yard touchdown vs. the Jets. That was the 5th-highest average in Giants history.
-    Harris was the 3rd player in Giants history with kickoff and punt return touchdowns in the same season, and the first to do it in 60 years. In 1951, Pro Football Hall of Famer Emlen Tunnell scored on an 81-yard punt return vs. the Chicago Cardinals on Oct. 14, and a 100-yard kickoff return vs. the New York Yanks on Nov. 4. In 1955, Jimmy Patton scored on a 98-yard kickoff return and a 69-yard punt return, both against Washington on Oct. 30. Patton, of course, is the only player in Giants history with kickoff and punt return touchdowns in the same game.

Harris broke a 20-20 tie when he scored with 7:01 remaining in the game, making it the first kickoff return in Giants history that accounted for the deciding points in the 4th quarter of a game in which the Giants trailed or were tied. The previous such return in the NFL was on Jan. 1, 2006, when the Jets’ Justin Miller scored the game-winning points in a 30-26 victory over Buffalo on a 95-yard return with 5:58 remaining…Harris’ 100-yard runback tied the franchise record, set by Emlen Tunnell vs. the New York Yanks on Nov. 4, 1951, tied by Clarence Childs vs. Minnesota on Dec. 6, 1964…Harris joined the Giants after 4 seasons with the Cowboys.

Although it was the first time the Giants hit that daily double in a regular-season game in 64 years, they did it in a postseason game just 15 years earlier.
