Research Notes

  • From Elias: Eli Manning is the 5th quarterback since 1982 to go 3 consecutive games without a passing touchdown the season after he started and won the Super Bowl.

  • Since Tom Coughlin was hired in 2004, the Giants have struggled immensely in November with a 13-21 W-L record. In fact, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Giants have the largest drop in win pct in a single calendar month as compared to all other months over that span at a difference of .262 pct (.382 in November and .644 in all other months).

  • Historically, the Giants best month under Tom Coughlin has been October and their worst has been November. That is holding true to form this year as New York finished 4-0 in October and falls to 0-2 in November after a loss in Cincinnati on Sunday.

  • Manning is 2-for-11 targeting Victor Cruz on those throws for 44 yards and no touchdowns in the last three games. In the first seven games, Cruz caught 13-of-22 targets for 335 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Eli Manning completed 4-of-11 passes deeper than 10 yards downfield for 52 yards and an interception. Manning's average pass traveled 7.4 yards downfield on Sunday, his lowest average throw distance in a game this season. Manning refuted speculation after the game that he has a "tired arm," but he has struggled in the last three weeks despite throwing a higher percentage of his attempts downfield.

  • Eli Manning's QBR has declined almost every week since Week 5.
