Giants, Saquon Barkley set various all-time marks in victory over Redskins
This guy is an absolute beast.
With the victory, the Giants improved to 100-68-4 against the Redskins all-time, becoming the first franchise in NFL history to record 100 or more wins over another franchise. The 34-0 lead at halftime was the third-largest regular season halftime lead in Giants history. With 197 yards passing, Eli Manning increased his career total to 55,142, becoming only the seventh quarterback in NFL history to eclipse the 55,000-yard mark. Rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta made his NFL debut when he entered the game in the fourth quarter. Saquon Barkley’s 170 rushing yards was the second-highest total for a rookie in Giants history. Barkley increased his own franchise rookie record for rushing yards (1,124). By going over 1,000 yards on the season, Barkley becomes the Giants’ first 1,000-yard rusher since Ahmad Bradshaw in 2012. Barkley’s 78-yard touchdown run was the second-longest by a rookie in Giants history. It was also the fifth-longest touchdown run in Giants history. With his touchdown, Barkley now has 13 total on the season, which sets the Giants’ all-time rookie record. Barkley’s nine touchdown runs are second-most by a rookie in franchise history (Bill Paschal, 10). Barkley’s five touchdowns of 50 yards or more are an all-time franchise record for rookies. Additionally, he also has four touchdowns runs of 50 yards or more, which is more than the team has had total in the last 10 seasons. With his four receptions, Barkley increased his season total to 78, which second-most for a rookie in franchise history. Curtis Riley’s pick-6 was the first touchdown of his career. He dedicated the score to the Father of Giants superfan, License Plate Guy, who unfortunately passed away last week.
