Running the Numbers: Stats on the New York Giants
At the team site, I broke down the Giants’ meaningful offensive statistics. . .
7.6: Net yards-per-attempt for Giants’ passing offense.
No NFL team has been more efficient through the air. Eli Manning has connected on 63.8 percent of his passes, a career-best so far. Remember, net YPA factors sacks into an offense’s passing stats, and the Giants have allowed only six sacks in all of 2012, the lowest number in the league.
4.5: Yards-per-carry from all Giants running backs.
The Giants’ passing efficiency has helped their running game. Despite a revolving door of Ahmad Bradshaw, Andre Brown and David Wilson, the Giants rank seventh in the NFL in rushing efficiency. They often utilize their rushing success to set up big plays through play-action passes. Overall, the Giants own the league’s second-most efficient offense.
2.6: Percentage of Eli Manning’s passes that have been intercepted.
If there’s one aspect of Manning’s game that can be considered a weakness, it’s that he still makes the occasional poor throw into tight coverage. When pressured, Manning struggles just like any other quarterback. With defenders in his face, Manning’s interception rate soars to 8.3 percent.
