The New York Giants season ended without a playoff berth for the second straight year. There were, however, several outstanding individual achievements.
From the NFL PR Dept., here are milestones accomplished by the Giants this season:
- QB ELI MANNING passed for 4,002 yards and became the first quarterback in franchise history to pass for 4,000 yards in consecutive seasons.
- Manning set franchise records for the most completions (1,838), attempts (3,169), passing yards (21,465) and passing touchdowns (148) in a player's first 100 games as a Giant.
- With 22,646 career passing yards, Manning joined PHIL SIMMS (33,462) as the only Giants quarterbacks to pass for 20,000 yards. He is the first quarterback in franchise history to reach 3,000 passing yards in six consecutive seasons.
- In Week 5, WR HAKEEM NICKS joined AMANI TOOMER as the only players in franchise history to record at least 12 catches (12), 130 yards (130) and two touchdowns (2) in a single game.
Here is one the NFL PR folks did not add. Defensive end OSI UMENYIORA set a league record by forcing 10 fumbles this season.
