If you can stand any more review of the New York Giants 37-18 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, here are some numbers that help tell the story of the game

429 — That’s the number of yards the Giants gave up, the fifth time this season they have surrendered more than 400 yards. They gave up 400+ yards in five games all of last season.

6 — The number of times in a row the Giants have lost to the Cowboys.

271 — That’s the total yards gained by the Giants, the fourth time in the last five games they have been under 300 total yards.

5 — How many touchdowns Dallas tight end Blake Jarwin has against the Giants the past two seasons. He only has six career touchdowns.

47 — That’s the number of snaps played by Leonard Williams in his Giants’ debut. Williams finished with three tackles and a quarterback hit.

18 — That’s the paltry number of snaps played by B.J. Hill. That’s a season-low for the second-year defensive lineman, and an indication of just how much the Giants relied on a two-man defensive line.

28 — That’s how many snaps linebacker Deone Bucannon played in his second game as a Giant. Bucannon split time with David Mayo, who played 41 snaps.
