Notes: In the last six games, WR Odell Beckham has caught 49 passes. That is the highest total in a six-game span by a rookie in NFL history.
Beckham is both the first Giants player ever and the first rookie in NFL history with six consecutive games with 90 or more receiving yards.
Beckham has two games this season with at least 10 catches and 130 receiving yards. He is the first rookie in NFL history to do that.
In Tennessee, Beckham totaled 11 catches for 130 yards and running back Andre Williams rushed for 131 yards on 24 carries. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Giants were the first team in NFL history to have rookies with 130 rushing and receiving yards in the same game.
Quarterback Eli Manning has thrown for 3,340 yards this year. It is his 10th consecutive 3,000-yard season, the fourth-longest streak in NFL history behind Brett Favre (18), Peyton Manning (13) and Drew Brees (11).
In the last two weeks, the Giants had seven sacks at Jacksonville and eight at Tennessee. It is the first time in their history they had at least seven sacks in consecutive games.
If the Giants defeat Washington on Sunday, they will clinch third place in the NFC East.
