Here are a few facts and figures to ponder before tonight's game between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

  1. The Cowboys have won the last three meetings between the two teams.
  2. Dallas running back DeMarco Murray is the first player in league history to rush for more than 100 yards in nine of his team's first 10 games.
  3. Jason Pierre-Paul of the Giants is the only NFL defensive end with two interception returns for touchdowns since 2012.
  4. Odell Beckham Jr. has 21 catches for 357 yards (119 yards per game) over his last three games. That is second in the NFL in receiving yards and third in receptions over that span.
  5. The Cowboys are 3-1 vs. the Giants in MetLife Stadium.
  6. The Giants have been 3-7 only seven times in franchise history. The worst they finished after being 3-7 is 5-11.
  7. The Giants' 1,003 rushing yards through 10 games is the fourth-lowest total in Tom Coughlin's career.
  8. Manning's first ever win against the NFC East was a 28-24 win at home against the Dallas Cowboys on 1/2/2005.
  9. Eli Manning (247) needs one touchdown pass to surpass Boomer Esiason for 16th place on the all-time career passing touchdowns list.
  10. Josh Brown is third in the NFL among active kickers in field goals made from 50 yards or more. He is 31-of-48 (64.6 percent) from that distance in his career.
