AROUND THE NFC EAST: WEEK 6
The Giants are currently in fourth place in the NFC East with an 0-6 record. The team trails Dallas and Philadelphia by 3.5 games and is one game behind Washington. Here’s a look at how the NFC East preformed in Week 6:
» Division standing: 1st
» Week 6 result: 31-16 victory over the Redskins (HIGHLIGHTS)
» Stat leaders: QB Tony Romo – 176 passing yards, one touchdown and an interception, RB DeMarco Murray – seven carries for 29 yards and a touchdown, LB Sean Lee – 10 tackles.
» Comments: “I sure am (happy the way) the defense responded tonight. That front, I was concerned in the fourth quarter about them tiring and not (being able) to get a lot of substitutions in there (but) they gutted it up. They didn’t tire and they really just kept coming. Rod (Marinelli) obviously had gotten them really motivated and they played a really outstanding game for us. They’re a big part, I was really proud of that bunch out there, the defensive line.” -Owner Jerry Jones
» Results vs. Giants: 36-31 victory in Week 1
» Next meeting vs. Giants: Week 12
» Division standing: 2nd
» Week 6 result: 31-20 victory over the Buccaneers (HIGHLIGHTS)
» Stat leaders: QB Nick Foles – 296 passing yards and three touchdowns, RB LeSean McCoy – 25 carries for 116 yards, WR Riley Cooper – four receptions for 120 yards and 1 touchdown.
» Comments: “I felt Nick (Foles) did a really great job. What we do offensively, we talked about it all along, we don’t change. He ran our offense, he did a really great job in spreading the ball around to different receivers. I’m really, really happy with how he played today.” -Coach Chip Kelly
» Results vs. Giants: 31-21 victory in Week 5
» Next meeting vs. Giants: Week 8
» Division standing: 3rd
» Week 6 result 31-16 loss to the Cowboys (HIGHLIGHTS)
» Stat leaders: QB Robert Griffin III – 246 passing yards and one interception, RB Alfred Morris – 16 carries for 81 yards and one touchdown, WR Pierre Garcon – Six receptions for 69 yards.
» Comments: “In order to win on the road you have to play a complete game. I thought we played some great defense. Any time you’re 0-for-3 in the red zone and have a couple of turnovers to their one, a couple big plays on special teams, you’re not going to win on the road. So that was disappointing.” -Coach Mike Shanahan
» Results vs. Giants: None
» Next meeting vs. Giants: Week 13
» Division standing: 4th
» Week 6 result: 27-21 loss to the Bears (HIGHLIGHTS)
» Stat leaders: QB Eli Manning – 239 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions, RB Brandon Jacobs – 22 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns, WR Rueben Randle – three receptions for 75 yards and one touchdown.
» Comments: “You don’t know how it’s going to turn out. Right now, the other NFC East teams have two wins and the best record team has two wins. We’ve got to stick together and just keep fighting and keep making improvements and see if we can get on a hot streak, but obviously it’s just take one game at a time and worry about getting that first win and that will be a nice one.” -QB Eli Manning
