• The Giants defeated the Redskins 36-0, equaling their second-largest margin of victory in 147 games between those teams (including two postseason matchups). The Giants beat the Redskins 53-0 at Yankee Stadium in 1961, and 36-0 at the Polo Grounds in 1938.

• Tiki Barber gained 171 yards rushing by halftime of the Giants' win. The only other active players to record that high a total in the first half of a game are Jamal Lewis (180 yards against the Browns in 2003) and Marshall Faulk (183 yards against the Panthers in 2001).
