The Giants' 514 yards, are the most accumulated in a single game since they gained 604 yards in a victory over Tampa Bay on Sept. 16, 2012. The 386 net passing yards was their highest total since they threw for 428 yards on Sept. 8, 2013 against Dallas. Eli Manning racked up a 131.5 QBR in the first half, completing 16 of 18 passes for 200 yards and a TD.
The Giants had a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard rusher and a 100-yard receiver for the first time since Dec. 1, 2011, in a victory at Dallas, where Manning threw for 400 yards, Brandon Jacobs ran for 101 yards and Nicks had 163 receiving yards.
For the second game in a row, the Giants did not have an offensive turnover, the first time that’s happened since Oct. 21 and 27, 2013, in victories over Minnesota and Philadelphia. They have won six consecutive games in which they did not commit an offensive turnover. Go figure.
QB: Grade A: Manning completed 25 of 32 passes for 391 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 148.8. The rating was his highest in a full game in his 11-year career. Against a Rams' team that was playing as stingy a defense as we've seen in recent memory, that's an incredible accomplishment. Eli threw the ball with authority and a crispness not seen in years by Giant fans. Too little, too late, I know. But it's an encouraging sign that he's far from done. In fact, his future looks bright.
RB: Grade A: Andre Williams rushed for 110 yards on 26 carries, including a 45-yarder. It was his second 100-yard game of the season; Williams ran for 131 yards two weeks ago in Tennessee. His 45-yard run in the third quarter was his second-longest of the season. He had a 50-yard touchdown run in Tennessee. Williams was up to the challenge. Aside from a missed block early in the contest that that went for a sack, Williams played an outstanding game, running with confidence and power. Orleans Darkwa proved to be a nice change-up option, scoring his first NFL TD in the second quarter.
TE: Grade: B: TEs have taking a backseat in the Giants offense since OBJ began hogging all the targets the past few months. That being said, Larry Donnell logged in a steady performance (4 rec, 42 yards) and Daniel Fells had two catches for 20 yards. They are there when needed.
WR: Grade: A+: Beckham (8 rec, 148 yards, 2TD - one for 80 yds) is setting the world on fire. He is the rising tide that is raising all boats here with the Giants. He is having a record-setting season and has completely changed the complexion of the offense while helping Eli Manning regain his form. Beckham is only half the story this week. Rueben Randle was finally able to take advantage of Beckham's presence by catching all six of his targets for 132 yards and scored on a pretty catch and run, diving over the pylon. Preston Parker caught all three of his targets before getting ejected after the brawl.
OL: Grade: A: They were supposed to get tossed around by the Rams' mighty front seven. Surprise! Just the opposite happened. Eli was sacked just once, and that came on a safety blitz where Andre Williams whiffed on TJ McDonald. LT Will Beatty was called four times for holding Robert Quinn, but that beats allowing a sacks and turnovers. It may have been his best game. He played with fire. In a battle of former first round picks, RT Justin Pugh held Chris Long to just one tackle. The middle of the line was equally effective. Rams super rookie DT Aaron Donald did not record a tackle.
