STATS+ Giants vs. Lions by the numbers


 A statistical look at the Giants' Week 2 matchup in STATS+ presented by New York Lottery:


The Giants-Lions regular-season series is tied, 21-21-1. It dates back to 1930, when the Lions were the Portsmouth Spartans.


Eli Manning needs three touchdown passes to become the eighth quarterback to throw at least 35 touchdowns on Monday Night Football. He would join Dan Marino (74), Brett Favre (69), Tom Brady (47), Drew Brees (47), Steve Young (42), Peyton Manning (38) and Joe Montana (36).


According to STATS LLC, B.J. Goodson's 18 total tackles in Week 1 were tied for the second-most in a regular-season game for the Giants since 1994. Jessie Armstead also had 18 in a 1997 game against the Cowboys. Mike Barrow had 19 in a 2003 outing. The opponent? Dallas, of course.


Last week, the Giants started three rookies in Dallas: tight ends Evan Engram and Shane Smith, and defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that was their highest number of rookie starters in a season opener since 1997 (wide receiver Ike Hilliard, running back Tiki Barber, safety Sam Garnes and center Derek Engler).


With a 10-yard catch on the final play against Dallas, Brandon Marshall extended his reception streak to 160 games in which he has played. That is the second-longest active streak behind Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald (196).

Odell Beckham Jr.'s one-handed TD catch vs. Detroit is up for the Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year.
