The New York Giants are currently 7.5-point underdogs to the Oakland Raiders in Sunday’s game, the first of a post-Eli Manning era for the Giants. Here are some of the other numbers to be aware of Sunday.

7.2 percent

That is the percentage of passes dropped by Giants’ receivers this season, worst in the league.


That is how many rushing yards after contact Giants’ runners have this season, fifth-fewest in the NFL.


That is how many games the Giants have gone without scoring at least 30 points in a game. That is the entirety of Ben McAdoo’s time as the team’s head coach.


That, of course, is the number on which the consecutive start streak of Eli Manning will end.


That is how many passing yards Manning needs to surpass John Elway and move into sixth place all-time. Since he isn’t playing, he isn’t going to get there.


The numbers players placed on IR by the Giants this week. Those players were D.J. Fluker, Donte Deayon, Deontae Skinner, Curtis Grant and Janoris Jenkins.

Five is also the number of games left in the season and, perhaps if Giants’ ownership has the stomach for it, how many games before the organization cleans house.


The number of players the Giants have placed on IR this season.


That is Geno Smith’s career won-loss record as a starting quarterback.


That’s the Pro Football Focus grade for Giants’ rookie defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson.


That is the per carry average this season for Giants’ running back Orleans Darkwa. That is 10th in the NFL.
