I was thinking this morning about how many times the Giants seem to have blown out opponents at home in the playoffs, so I ran the numbers, and they are pretty staggering. Even when you consider the 23-0 loss in 2005 to Carolina, they are still very impressive. Please note that these numbers are just since moving to the Meadowlands.
Giants home record in the playoffs since moving to NJ: 8-4
Points Scored: Giants 262 Opponents 119
Average Final Score: Giants 21.8 Opponents 9.9
Number of times the Giants have held their opponents to 3 points or less in those games: 5
This is why I was rooting pretty hard for Detroit this weekend.
