Brandon Jacobs had eight carries for 103 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Redskins, with seven of those carries coming versus seven defenders in the box. He became just the fifth Giant to rush for over 4,000 yards in a career.
From Elias: The Giants are up by 21 points at halftime against the Redskins. It's the 3rd time this season in which the Giants have been up by at least 21 at halftime. FROM ELIAS: Entering this season, the Giants had never had three different games in one season where they were up 21-or-more points at the half. So, this season would be the first in franchise history.
