• Odell Beckham, Jr. tied his season-high with 10 receptions (he also had 10 vs. Cincinnati) for 100 yards. It was his third 100-yard game of the season and the 18th of his career. That broke a tie with Homer Jones for third on the Giants' career list and moved him into a tie with Victor Cruz at No. 2. Amani Toomer holds the franchise record with 22 100-yard games.
