There were several significant individual achievements for the Giants in Sunday’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys. A look at some of them:

•?Eli Manning’s 400 yards passing moved him to 4,105 on the season, eclipsing his previous career-high (4,021) and the Giants’ single-season record (4,073 for Kerry Collins in 2002). It was the third 400-yard game of Manning’s career and the first time the Giants won a game with a 400-yard passer. Manning’s 21st game of 300 yards or more tied him with Phil Simms for the franchise lead.

•?Manning, who is averaging 316 yards per game, is on pace for 5,052 yards. That would fall only 32 short of Dan Marino’s record, though Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are all on pace to pass Marino.

•?One more for Manning: He started his 116th consecutive regular-season game, moving past the Eagles’ Ron Jaworski. Only Brett Favre (297) and Peyton Manning (208) have posted longer streaks.

•?Brandon Jacobs’ two rushing touchdowns gave him 56 for his career, breaking Tiki Barber’s franchise record of 55.



•?Jacobs’ 12th 100-yard game (he ran for 101 yards) moved him into fourth place on the Giants’ all-time list. The Giants are 11-1 when he rushes for 100 yards. (The only loss was Dec. 16, 2007, vs. the Redskins.)

•?Hakeem Nicks’ 163 yards gave him 1,023 yards this season. He and Victor Cruz (1,150) are now the first duo in Giants history to each record 1,000 yards receiving in a single season.

•?Cruz now needs only 194 yards in the final three games to eclipse Amani Toomer’s single-season record.

Also think Harooni is crying about Tikis record being broken.

Kinda cool about Marino's record, never noticed he was that close and they dont talk about him approaching it at all.

Just goes to show how much the league is favoring the offenses. There's a few QB's threatening that record this year and a rookie that's about to throw for 4000.

Don't know who the "they" are that you refer to, but NFL Network's "Total Access" has shown the numbers to date of all 4 QBs (including Eli as 4th) who have a good chance of reaching or breaking Marino's single season record, for the past 2-3 weeks.

And, if not before, after the Packers game and now the Cowboys game, an increasing number of commentaries and comments praising Eli and the year he's having have been forthcoming.

Deion Sanders even commented directly last night that "we've been underestimating Eli".

Eli has--at last--arrived, in the minds of the hard core sceptics.

Kinda hard to ignore his season to date, especially after his 12 point deficit comeback with less than 6 minutes in the game, IN Dallas and on Prime Time national TV.

We had (2) 1,000 yard rushers a few years ago (Ward and Jacobs)
