Here are a few nuggets from the New York giants PR department for your reading enjoyment.

- Eli Manning leads the NFL in passing yards with 2,109. At that pace he would throw for 4,820 yards this season.

- Manning's game-winning 77-yard pass to Victor Cruz on Sunday was the longest game-winning touchdown pass in the final two minutes of a game in Giants' franchise history.

- Manning increased his career passing yardage total on Sunday to 29,688. He passed Roman Gabriel (29,444) to move into 37th place on the NFL's career list.

- Manning's record as a starter in October is now 26-5 (.839), the highest winning percentage of any quarterback in the Super Bowl era.

- Lawrence Tynes leads the NFL with 77 points, six more than New England's Steve Gostkowski. No other kicker has more than 64 points.

- Tynes has succeeded on 19 of 21 field goal attempts, both league-high totals. The 19 field goals match his total for the entire season in both 2010 and 2011.

- Cruz has 50 receptions, third in the league behind Wes Welker of New England (54) and Percy Harvin of Minnesota (53).

- The Giants have made a league-high 32 trips inside their opponents' 20-yard line. They have scored 30 times (93.8 percent), but have scored just 15 touchdowns, a 46.9 percent rate that places them 22nd in the NFL.

- The Giants have allowed an NFL-low six sacks, two less than Buffalo and Houston.
