8: The Giants' longest regular-season win streak over the Redskins is eight games, stretching from 1960-1964.

7: The number of touchdowns Y.A. Tittle threw in a 1962 victory over Washington, tying an NFL record for most in a game. The mark is currently shared with four other players -- George Blanda (1961), Nick Foles (2013), Joe Kapp (1969), and Peyton Manning (2013).

6: The Giants have recorded six or more sacks against Washington six times, most recently in 2002. They recorded eight in 1998, the most in series history.

4: There have been four ties in 160 regular-season meetings between the two franchises – 1932 (0-0), 1939 (0-0), 1960 (24-24), 1997 (7-7). The Giants are 92-64-4 all-time against the Redskins, making it the most frequently-contested series in franchise history.

The Giants have recorded multi-defensive touchdown outings in two other games in franchise history – at Detroit (1996) and at Buffalo (2006).

1: The longest play from scrimmage against Washington in 81 years of the franchise is a 92-yard touchdown from Giants quarterback Eli Manning to wide receiver Mario Manningham, coming in the final game of the 2010 season.
