As the New York Giants head into their final game of the 2012 NFL regular season here is a look at some of the milestones players have achieved this season, and some of what they might be shooting for on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

- Placekicker Lawrence Tynes has made a franchise-record 198 consecutive extra points since missing one vs. San Francisco on Oct. 21, 2007. The former team record of 133 in a row was set by Pete Gogolak from 1967-72.

- Running back Ahmad Bradshaw has 7,020 career total yards. He is the seventh player in Giants' history to surpass 7,000 yards. Bradshaw needs 92 yards rushing to reach 1,000 for the second time in his career. Bradshaw is three rushing touchdowns away from surpassing Ron Johnson (33) on the Giants all-time rushing touchdowns list and tying Frank Gifford for seventh on the Giants’ all-time list.

- Tight end Martellus Bennett has set career-highs in receptions (54), receiving yards (611) and touchdowns (five). His previous best was 33 catches in 2010.

- Safety Stevie Brown is having the best season of his three-year NFL career. Brown leads the Giants with seven interceptions and the NFL with a team-record 259 interception return yards. Brown has also forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles in 2012. Prior to this season, Brown had not recorded an interception, a forced fumble or a fumble recovery.

- Through 15 games, the Giants offensive line has allowed an NFL-best 18 sacks of QB Eli Manning (19 total).

- David Wilson has returned 56 kickoffs for a franchise-record 1,504 yards (26.9-yard average).

- Tom Coughlin is 16th on the all-time list of coaching victories (regular and post-season combined) with 162.

- Among Giants' quarterbacks Eli Manning is second in passing attempts (4,436), first in completions (2,599), second in yards (31,319), first in touchdowns (206), third in interceptions (144) and first in 300-yard games (25). Manning is 260 yards shy of 4,000 for the season.

- Justin Tuck is 1.5 sacks away from 50 for his career.
