Here are a few interesting numbers to be aware of leading up to Sunday's game between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers.

How do the team's match up statistically? Here is a table built by our friends at Niners Nation.

Manning needs two touchdown passes to surpass Boomer Esiason (247) for 16th place on the NFL all-time career passing touchdowns list.

With four more touchdown passes, Manning will become the 16th quarterback in NFL history with 250 or more touchdown passes.

Manning has started 160 straight games, and Tom Coughlin has been head coach for all of them. Only two quarternback coach tandems in NFL history have more starts -- Tom Brady and Bill Belichick (200) and Dan Marino/Don Shula (184).

With a 100-yard game on Sunday, Odell Beckham would become the first Giants rookie wide receiver to have three straight 100-yard receiving games.

The Giants are second in the NFL in interceptions with 13, and seventh in points off takeaways (55, off 16 takeaways).

The Giants are 61-13 during Coughlin's tenure when they have a + turnover ratio.
