10 things to watch in Giants vs. Bengals

10-GRAPHIC

SERIES HISTORY

The Giants will look to overturn series history for the away team when they travel to Cincinnati in Week 12. The home team has won all 10 games in the series with the Bengals, and the teams have alternated victories in their last five meetings dating back to 1997. They most recently met on Monday night, Nov. 14, 2016, when Eli Manning's third touchdown pass of the game, a three-yarder to Sterling Shepard early in the fourth quarter, held up for a 21-20 victory.

LAST TIME OUT

The Giants (3-7) sat idle after consecutive wins over Washington and Philadelphia. They will look for their first three-game winning streak since 2016, the last time they made the postseason.

After defeating the Titans in Week 8, the Bengals dropped their last two games, most recently a 20-9 loss at Washington. In that game, Cincinnati lost quarterback Joe Burrow, the NFL's No. 1 draft choice this year, to a serious, season-ending knee injury.

MCKINNEY, GANO, CROWDER ACTIVATED

On Saturday, the Giants activated linebacker Tae Crowder and safety Xavier McKinney from the team's injured reserve list. Kicker Graham Gano was activated from the Reserve/Covid-19 list. Defensive end Niko Lalos was also a standard elevation from the practice squad.

NEXT MAN UP AFTER JOE BURROW?

Ryan Finley stepped in last Sunday after Burrow's injury, but that might change this Sunday. Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor signed Brandon Allen, who could make his fourth career start, off the team's practice squad.

KEEP ON RUNNING

The Giants rushed for 151 yards in their 27-17 triumph Sunday over the Philadelphia Eagles. They have exceeded 100 yards on the ground in each of their last five games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that is their longest streak since they topped the century mark in nine consecutive games in 2010.

DJ'S HISTORIC NUMBERS

Daniel Jones has rushed for at least 45 yards in five different games, the most by a Giants quarterback in the Super Bowl era. Lamar Jackson (nine) and Arizona's Kyler Murray (seven) are the only quarterbacks with more 45-yard rushing games this season entering Week 12.

GALLMAN'S TD STREAK

Wayne Gallman has five touchdowns on 69 rushing attempts this season. He had just three rushing touchdowns on his first 191 carries throughout his first three seasons. He will look to run into the end zone for the fifth consecutive game.

RED ZONE SUCCESS

In their first six games, the Giants scored four touchdowns on 16 trips inside their opponents' 20-yard line. Over the last four games, they have scored nine red zone touchdowns in 11 trips.

700 CLUB

The victories the last two weeks improved the Giants' all-time regular season record to 699-615-33. With their next victory, they will become the third franchise with 700 wins, joining the Chicago Bears (774) and Green Bay Packers (763). The franchise closest to the Giants is the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose 10-0 start has increased their victory total to 641.
