Anatomy of a Giants comeback for the record books


GLENDALE, Ariz. – Notes and statistics from the Giants' 31-28 come-from-behind victory against the Arizona Cardinals in State Farm Stadium:

*The Giants trailed in the third quarter, 28-7. The 21-point deficit is tied for the largest they ever faced in a game the Giants rallied to win. This is their third such comeback, the second against the Cardinals and their first in almost 74 years.

On Dec. 2, 1945, the Giants fell behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the Polo Grounds, 21-0, before Arnie Herber caught four touchdown passes to give them a 28-21 triumph. The Giants repeated the feat on Oct. 30, 1949, against the Cardinals, who were then based in Chicago. Playing in Comiskey Park, the Giants were in a 28-7 hole at halftime before surging to a 41-38 victory.

*The Giants improved to 1-1 and face a short week before facing the 2-0 San Francisco 49ers on Thursday.

*The Giants improved to 52-42-5 in road openers. Their 52 victories trail only the Green Bay Packers (58) all-time.
