A look at some of the most important figures surrounding the team in STATS+, Presented by The New York Lottery:

23

Evan Engram, the 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, has 23 first downs via reception, the most among all NFL rookies. He has done so on 34 catches, making his 67.6 first down percentage the fifth-best among all tight ends, veterans included. Rob Gronkowski is No. 1 at 76.5 percent.

5.15

Running back Orleans Darkwa is averaging 5.15 yards per carry this season, the fifth-best mark in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers have the last-ranked rush defense, allowing 135.7 yards per game. However, they jump to 14th in yards allowed per carry at 3.9. That's because opponents are running on them on 49.5 percent of plays (314 attempts), the highest rate in the league.

208

Eli Manning will start his 208th consecutive regular-season game Sunday, which would tie his brother Peyton for the second-longest streak in NFL history at quarterback. Brett Favre owns the record with 297.

26:16

The 49ers have the lowest average time of possession in the NFL at 26:16. The Giants are 27th at 28:02.
