Good morning, New York Giants fans!

First, a few notes from Sunday’s victory over the Washington Redskins.

  • Kaden Smith’s touchdown was the Giants’ first in overtime in almost exactly 11 years. On Dec. 21, 2008, Brandon Jacobs scored on a two-yard run to give the Giants a 34-28 victory against the Carolina Panthers.
  • The Giants’ 41 points was their highest total since a 52-49 loss in New Orleans on Nov. 1, 2015 and their highest total in a victory since they won, 45-14, at Washington on Sept 25, 2014. This was the second time they reached the 40-point mark under Pat Shurmur; their first was in their previous visit to Washington, a 40-16 triumph on Dec. 9, 2018.
  • Daniel Jones is the first rookie in Giants history to throw five touchdown passes. The last NFL rookie to accomplish the feat was Houston’s Deshaun Watson, on Oct. 8, 2017 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • This was Jones’ third game with at least four touchdown passes. The only other rookies in NFL history to do that were Watson and Pro Football Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton in 1961.
  • Saquon Barkley set a franchise record with 279 yards from scrimmage (189 rushing and 90 receiving). The previous record of 276 yards was set by Tiki Barber vs. Philadelphia on Dec. 28, 2002. Barber rushed for 203 yards and added 73 receiving yards.
  • Barkley’s 189 yards is the highest total by a Giants running back since Oct. 7, 2012, when Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 200 yards in a victory against Cleveland.
  • Barkley has rushed for 911 yards this season and needs 89 yards in the season finale vs. Philadelphia to become the first Giants player to begin a career with two 1,000-yard seasons. He ran for 1,307 yards and won the NFL Rookie of the Year Award in 2018.
