The New York Giants won one of the more wild NFL games in recent memory on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Chicago Bears, 30-27, in an overtime game that featured touchdown passes from a wide receiver and running back, a rushing touchdown from a defensive tackle and a pick-6 from a linebacker.
As always, several notable statistics, numbers or records came from the game, but this time, some of them were so important to history that we deviated from our usual generic headline.
So without further ado, let’s take a look:
With the win, the Giants improve to 21-15-2 in regular season overtime games since the extra frame was instituted in 1974.
With 146 yards from scrimmage, running back Saquon Barkley eclipsed 100 yards from scrimmage for the 11th time this season.
With 125 yards rushing, Barkley extended his franchise rookie record to three consecutive 100-yard rushing games.
With his big game, Barkley now has 954 yards rushing on the season, which sets an all-time Giants franchise record for a rookie (previously held by Tuffy Leemans in 1936).
With his three receptions, Barkley now has 74 on the season which tied tight end Jeremy Shockey for second-most for a rookie in team history (Odell Beckham Jr. had 91 in 2014).
Odell Beckham Jr. both threw a touchdown and caught a touchdown for the second time this season. He is the first non-Giants quarterback to toss two or more touchdowns in a season since 1993 (David Meggett).
With his touchdown reception, Beckham increased his career total to 44, which passes Frank Gifford for fourth on the team’s all-time list.
Beckham also became the first player in NFL history to have 1,000-plus yards receiving and two passing touchdowns in a single season.
With his pick-6 on the second play of the game, Alec Ogletree became the only linebacker in Giants history with two interceptions returned for a touchdown in one season.
Ogletree is the first Giants linebacker with four or more interceptions in one season since 1967 (Vince Costello).
With time expiring in the second quarter, kicker Aldrick Rosas connected on a 57-yard field goal, which is the longest in Giants history.
Rosas now has four field goals of 50-plus yards on the season, which ties the all-time franchise record set by Josh Brown in 2014.
