8: The number of catches Victor Cruz had in the last meeting with Seattle. In the 2011 contest, he hauled in a 68-yard touchdown en route to 161 receiving yards, both of which are highs in the series history.

7: The Giants have averaged seven yards per carry in a game (minimum 25 attempts) seven times under head coach Tom Coughlin, including a 2008 victory over the Seahawks. Led by Brandon Jacobs' 136 yards, the Giants racked up 254 yards on 36 rushes (7.1 average) in a 44-6 victory at Giants Stadium.

6: Kicker Joe Danelo made six field goals in a 32-0 victory over the Seahawks at the Kingdome in 1981, the most by a Giant in franchise history. 

5: Eli Manning has faced Seattle five times as the starting quarterback. He is 2-3 against the Seahawks (1-1 at home), completing 63.2 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a passer rating of 98.4.

4: The number of times Eli Manning has thrown at least 50 passes in a regular-season game, including a 2005 loss to the Seahawks. Manning's 53 attempts in that game are tied for a career-high (2007 vs. Washington).
