Game Notes

-- This was Tom Coughlin's 162nd regular-season victory as an NFL head coach. That ties him with St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher - who also got his 162nd win Sunday - for 13th on the NFL career list.

-- Including his 12 victories in postseason games, Coughlin has 174 total wins. That ties him with former Green Bay and Seattle coach Mike Holmgren for 12th on the all-time list.

-- Andre Williams rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries and Odell Beckham Jr. had 130 receiving yards and a touchdown on 11 catches. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it's the first time in Giants history the team had rookies with 100 rushing yards and 100 receiving yards in the same game.

-- Beckham's 11 receptions were the highest total ever by a Giants rookie wide receiver and is tied for second among all of the franchise's first-year players. Tight end Mark Bavaro set the record with 12 catches at Cincinnati Oct. 13, 1985. Another tight end, Jeremy Shockey, had 11 receptions vs. Washington on Nov. 17, 2002.
