DALVIN-TOMLINSON-CARSON-WENTZ

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Notes and statistics from the Giants' 27-17 victory against the Philadelphia Eagles in MetLife Stadium:

*The Giants have won consecutive games for the first time this season and improved to 3-7, matching the win total of the NFC East-leading Eagles (who fell to 3-5-1). After their bye next week, the Giants will return to action on Nov. 29 in Cincinnati.

*The Giants ended a four-year, eight-game losing streak to the Eagles that included a 22-21 defeat in Philadelphia on Oct. 22. They had last defeated the Eagles on Nov. 6, 2016, by a 28-23 score.

*With a 3-2 record in NFC East games, the Giants are over .500 in their division for the first time since they finished 4-2 in 2016. They will play their final division game at home against Dallas on Jan. 3.

*The Giants won their first two division home games for the first time since 2015. Prior to that season, it hadn't happened since 2009. The Giants last swept their NFC East home games in 2005.

*The Giants have owned a double-digit lead in each of the last six games, their longest such streak in a single season since 1989, when they had a lead of 10 or more points in nine consecutive games.

*Neither team committed a turnover, the first time that happened in a Giants game since their 41-35 overtime victory in Washington on Dec. 22, 2019. The Giants have won their last three games in which they had no offensive turnovers. They had lost their previous two games in which they had no takeaways.

*Philadelphia was 0-for-9 on third-down conversion attempts, the first Giants opponent in 10 years to fail to convert a single third down. On Oct. 25, 2010, the Cowboys were 0-for-10 in a 41-35 Giants victory in Dallas.

*The Giants outgained the Eagles, 382-346, including a 231-190 advantage in net passing yardage. Each team had 22 first downs. The Giants rushed for 151 yards, their fifth consecutive game with more than 100 yards on the ground.

*Philadelphia rushed for 156 yards, the highest total by a Giants opponent since Dallas ran for 172 yards on Nov. 4, 2019.

*The Giants led at halftime for the third consecutive game. That last happened from Sept. 11-25, 2016, vs Dallas, New Orleans and Washington.

*The Giants' lead after two quarters was 14-3, the third consecutive game they held opponents without a first-half touchdown. That last occurred from Sept 24-Oct. 11, 2015, against Washington, Buffalo and San Francisco.

*The Giants scored their second opening-possession touchdown of the season when Daniel Jones reached the end zone on a 34-yard run on the game's eighth play. Their previous first-series touchdown was at Dallas on Oct. 11, when tight end Evan Engram scored on a one-yard run.

*The rushing touchdown was Jones' first since Sept. 22, 2019, when he scored on a pair of seven-yard runs – including the game-winner – at Tampa Bay in his first NFL start.

*Jones' 34-yarder was the longest touchdown run by a Giants quarterback since Nov. 10, 1991, when Jeff Hostetler scored on a 47-yard run in a 21-14 victory at Phoenix.

*Jones' score was the fourth-longest touchdown run by an NFL quarterback this season. Baltimore's Lamar Jackson scored on runs of 50 and 37 yards and the Jets' Sam Darnold on a 46-yard run. Jackson's 37-yarder on Oct. 18 was the most recent of those scores.

*The Giants also scored a touchdown on their second possession on Wayne Gallman's two-yard, fourth-down dive over the pile on the opening play of the second quarter. It was the first time the Giants scored touchdowns on each of their first two offensive series since Dec. 22, 2019, when Jones threw a 23-yard scoring pass to Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley followed with a 67-yard touchdown run in Washington.

*The touchdown drives covered 85 and 75 yards, respectively. It was the first time the Giants began a game with a pair of 75-yard touchdown drives since the game in Washington last year, when they began with three marches that each covered exactly 75 yards.

*Gallman has scored a touchdown in four consecutive games, the longest streak by a Giants player since Barkley reached the end zone in five consecutive games in 2018. Each of Gallman's touchdowns was on the ground. He is the first Giants player to rush for a touchdown in four consecutive games since Andre Brown had a streak of six straight games in 2012-13.

*Gallman rushed for a one-yard touchdown on the Giants' first offensive possession of the second half. It is the second time he scored two touchdowns in a game and the first time he ran for two scores. On Sept. 29, 2019, Gallman scored on a six-yard reception and a one-yard run in a victory against Washington.

*Gallman is the first Giants player to rush for two touchdowns in a game since Barkley scored on runs of one and 10 yards vs. Miami on Dec. 15, 2019.

*Jones completed 21 of 28 passes for 244 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He had a season-high passer rating for the second week in a row – 100.9 after posting a 94.2 rating last week in Washington.

*Jones' 244 yards increased his career total to 5,149.

*Jones won his first career start against a team other than Washington and Tampa Bay.

*This is the second time in his career Jones has started two consecutive games without throwing an interception. He also did it on Nov. 10 and 24, 2019 against the Jets and Chicago.

*Jones led the Giants with 64 rushing yards on a career-high nine carries. His previous high was seven attempts vs. Washington on Oct. 18. The 64 yards is his third-highest total; he ran for 92 at Philadelphia and 74 vs. Washington last month.

*Jones led the Giants in rushing for the sixth time this season. He also had the team's longest run for the sixth time.

*Sterling Shepard led the Giants with six receptions, for 47 yards. Darius Slayton had a game-high 93 yards on five receptions, including a game-long 40-yarder.

*Graham Gano kicked fourth-quarter field goals of 35 and 44 yards to extend his streak to 20 consecutive successful attempts. That ties Aldrick Rosas (2018-19) for the second-longest streak in Giants history. Josh Brown is the recordholder with 29 in a row from 2014-15. Gano has not missed a field goal attempt since a 57-yard try was wide left in Chicago on Sept. 20.

*Boston Scott scored the Eagle's first touchdown on a 56-yard run just 2:29 into the third quarter. It was the longest run against the Giants since Oct. 28, 2018, when Adrian Peterson, then with Washington, scored on a 64-yard run, also in MetLife Stadium.

*Before Sunday, the longest run allowed by the Giants this season was a 30-yarder by Pittsburgh's Benny Snell, Jr. on Sept. 14.

*Dexter Lawrence picked up his third sack of the season when he tackled Carson Wentz for a six-yard loss. Jabrill Peppers and Trent Harris split an eight-yard sack. The Giants registered a third sack that was credited to the team.

*For the second week in a row, the Giants defeated an opponent coming off its bye. Since 1990, they are 14-10 when their opponents are coming off a bye and the Giants are not.

*The Giants broke a three-game losing streak in games prior to a bye and continue to be one of the NFL's most successful teams in such games:

  • Seattle Seahawks 26-6-0 (.813)
  • Minnesota Vikings 22-10-0 (.688)
  • New Orleans Saints 22-10-0 (.688)
  • New York Giants 21-11-0 (.656)
  • Dallas Cowboys 21-11-0 (.656)
  • San Francisco 49ers 20-11-0 (.645)

*Shane Lemieux started his third consecutive game at left guard. Will Hernandez was in uniform after missing the previous two games while on the Reserve/Covid-19 list. Hernandez did not enter the game until 8:50 remained in the fourth quarter, when right guard Kevin Zeitler left with a concussion. Hernandez stepped in at his customary left guard spot while Lemieux moved to the right side.

*The Giants' inactive players were wide receiver Dante Pettis, linebacker TJ Brunson, offensive lineman Kyle Murphy, tackle Jackson Barton and defensive lineman RJ McIntosh.
