Rather than give you all of the Pro Football Focus numbers from the New York Giants' NFC East-clinching victory over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night I thought I would use this weekly PFF post as a season in review. Below, you will find the best and worst numbers for the Giants this season -- and it will be interesting to see if they match up with who you think played well and who did not.

Let's do a really quick Week 17 review, then we will get to the full season:

Week 17 Offense: Eli Manning (+3.7), Hakeem Nicks (+3.1), Kareem McKenzie (-4.4), David Diehl (-6.9).

Week 17 Defense: Jason Pierre-Paul (+3.4), Antrel Rolle (+2.1), Corey Webster (-2.0), Justin Tuck (-3.7)

Now, let's look at the overall 2011 season numbers for the Giants. To make this less cumbersome I am filtering out all season numbers between +3.0 and -3.0. Over 16 games, anywhere in that range can, I think, be considered average work. I really want to focus on the best and the worst.
