Some stats speak for themselves, others need to be expanded upon because they speak volumes. This is the place where we get behind the numbers and show what's really going on with the New York Giants.

The score that says a whole lot more...

The Giants had great bookend efforts -- but the Eagles controlled the middle of the game. The Giants let the Eagles back in the game in the second quarter - and it was hard to watch. I'm okay with that, because they are a very talented team. But I like that 4th quadrant here because the GMEN pulled away from an Eagles team that had nothing left in them. Kafka had nothing left, McCoy had nothing left, and there was no way the Giants weren't finishing that game. The Giants took over and pulled away at the most critical point of the game - and ended it with a couple of nice scores and a 2 point conversion to boot. Finishing like this should propel the Giants to new heights this season, and I have a feeling the sputtering offense talk is all be dead now.
