New, comments

Here are some numbers for the New York Giants when it comes to playoff performance, courtesy of the illustrious Giants PR department.

  • The Giants have played 45 postseason games in their history and Manning's 72-yard touchdown pass to Hakeem Nicks was only the second play longer than 70 yards. The other was Scott Brunner's 72-yard pass to Earnest Gray at San Francisco on Jan. 3, 1982. The longest run in Giants' postseason history was Rodney Hampton's 51-yarder vs. Minnesota on Jan. 9, 1994.
  • Against the Falcons, Manning completed 71.9 percent of his passes (23-of-32). That increased his career postseason completion percentage to 60.44, which moved him past Kerry Collins (60.0) and into first place on the Giants' list. Manning has completed 136-of-225 postseason passes.
  • Manning has 1,574 postseason passing yards and needs 106 to pass Simms' team record of 1,679 ... The franchise's career postseason completions record could also fall Sunday. Manning has 136 and Simms holds the record with 157.
  • Against Atlanta, Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 63 yards on 14 carries, a 4.5-yard average. That boosted his career postseason average to a Giants-record 4.37 yards (minimum 50 attempts). Bradshaw has run for 271 yards on 62 postseason carries ... Brandon Jacobs also had 14 attempts - for 92 yards - vs. the Falcons, a 6.57-yard average that was the second-highest in Giants playoff history for a back with at least 10 carries. Joe Morris had a 6.63-yard average (24-159) vs. San Francisco on Jan. 4, 1987.
  • The Giants' victory over Atlanta was the first NFL game to end in a 24-2 score since Dec. 24, 1980, when New England defeated Buffalo. It was the first 24-2 score in the 87-year history of the Giants.
