A win streak is a win streak, but again, the Giants have plenty to work on offensively. Luckily it?s been the defense that has carried the team to two straight wins.

When looking at the box score of this game, you?d probably think that the Giants put together some impressive offensive drives.

Eli Manning completed 25 passes for 246 yards and didn?t turn the ball over for the second straight week. Two of his receivers ? Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks ? each caught seven passes. And Peyton Hillis ran for 70 yards on 20 carries.

According to our colleague Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast, the Giants are second-least penalized team in the NFL after ten games with 53 flags upheld. The Falcons have the fewest at 46.

Ironically, the other three NFC East teams are among the most-penalized. Dallas leads the NFL with 97 penalties. They are followed by Washington with 95 and Philadelphia ranks fourth with 90.

Hat tip once again to Jimmy.

From Rich Cimini's blog:

Game officials seem to have it out for QB Mark Sanchez. He has been victimized by at least two illegal hits that resulted in fines -- the Broncos' Von Miller ($25,000) and the Ravens' Haloti Ngata ($15,000) -- but no flag was thrown in either case and there have been no roughing-the-passer penalties all season. Sanchez has drawn two personal-foul penalties (both by Jaguar defenders), but he was out of the pocket in both instances. If Tom Brady took a helmet to the chest, the way Sanchez did from Miller last week, you can bet there would've been a flag.
This isn't limited to Sanchez. In general, the Jets have been pretty unlucky with flags this season. It's interesting to see that sometimes even the league disagrees with how Jets games are being called.

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks speaks with Brad Richards and Ryan Callahan about how the Rangers have been able to cut down on taking penalties since their opening games

In the seven road games that the Rangers played before returning to Madison Square Garden, the Rangers were shorthanded 37 times.

Richards said, ?To be honest about it, we tried to focus from the start on not taking penalties, but we were so far behind as a team because of all the travel and everything associated with that, we were taking penalties because we were a step behind almost all the time,?
