New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin had no update on the severity of the hamstring injury suffered Sunday by Hakeem Nicks in the Giants’ 20-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins. He said only “I have to talk to the doctors.”
Here are some other notes from the victory, which raised the NFC East-leading Giants record to 5-2.
- The Giants improved to 5-2 for the seventh time in Tom Coughlin’s eight seasons as head coach. They were 6-1 in 2008.
- The Giants gained 402 total yards, their third consecutive 400-yard game.
- The Giants converted eight of 16 third-down opportunities, a season-best 50 percent. Their previous best was 46 percent (six of 13) at Arizona.
- The Giants had no turnovers for the second straight game, the first time that’s happened since Sept. 20 and 27, 2009 in victories at Dallas and Tampa Bay. The Giants have won each of their last six games in which they did not commit an offensive turnover.
- Miami’s Reggie Bush rushed for 103 yards. The Giants are 4-0 this season when an opposing back runs for at least 100 yards.
- The 300-yard passing game was the 17th of Eli Manning’s career, tying him with Kerry Collins for second in Giants history. Phil Simms is first with 21. The Giants are 9-8 when Manning throws for at least 300 yards, including 2-1 this season.
- Manning’s passer rating was 106.6. It was his sixth consecutive game with a rating greater than 90.
- Lawrence Tynes made both of his extra point attempts, extending his streak to a franchise-record 135 in a row. The previous mark of 133 was set by Pete Gogolak from 1967-72. Gogolak is the Giants’ all-time leading scorer.
