With game day nearing, we delve into the scouting report to break down the Giants' Week 10 opponent, the New England Patriots.
Here are some numbers that tell the story about the Pats, including how they have fared so far in the 2015 season and the Giants' history against them…
0: Eli Manning has missed 0 starts since making his debut. Manning's 176 consecutive starts is the longest active streak among NFL players, regardless of position. It's also the third-longest streak in history for a quarterback behind Brett Favre (297) and Peyton Manning (208).
1: The Patriots are the NFL's No. 1 scoring team, averaging 34.5 points per game. They are second in total yards (420.3), third in passing (325.5) and 26th in rushing (94.8)
2: New England has the 2nd-most sacks in the NFL with 27. Chandler Jones leads the league with 9.5.
3: The Giants have scored on a return touchdown in each of the last 3 games. The last time the Giants did that was in 2004.
4: The Giants have scored 4 defensive touchdowns, the team's highest total since they had five in 2007.
7: The Patriots' Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman, as well as the Giants' Odell Beckham Jr., are second in the NFL with 7 receiving touchdowns.
9: The Giants have an NFL-worst 9 sacks this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that is the lowest total for a team through nine games since sacks became a stat in 1963.
12: The Giants lead the NFL with a +12 turnover differential. The Giants have a league-best 21 takeaways (13 interceptions). The Patriots are right behind the Giants with a +7 turnover differential.
15: A win on Sunday would give the Patriots a winning record for the 15th consecutive year. Only San Francisco (1983-98) and Dallas (1970-85) have accomplished that since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.
20: Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick have both been NFL head coaches for at least 20 years. Sunday's meeting will mark the first-ever meeting between head coaches with 20 years of experience since Sept. 20, 1992 when Miami's Don Shula faced the Rams' Chuck Knox.
41: The Patriots are an NFL-best 41-15 in the month of November since 2001, which is good for a .732 winning percentage.
44: With a win over Washington last week, New England improved to 44-10 against NFC teams since 2002, which is the best inter-conference record in the NFL in that span.
