Inside the numbers: Giants offense

Posted Nov 13, 2012

Giants.com's Michael Eisen compares the Giants' 2011 and 2012 offense through 10 games

Everyone wants to know what’s wrong with the Giants’ offense. Tom Coughlin, Eli Manning and Kevin Gilbride readily admit the unit has not approached its capability in the last three games, including the 31-13 loss to the Bengals in Cincinnati.

The Giants will spend their bye week studying all facets of their attack and searching for solutions to a regression that has seen them score only three offensive touchdowns in three games, none of them on a Manning pass. Even with the recent lack of production, the Giants’ numbers after 10 games in many instances are better than they were last year at this time.

Here’s a comparison of some statistics and rankings after 10 games in both 2011 and 2012:
Statistic 2011 2012
Record 6-4 6-4
Points Scored 228 267
First Downs 197 206
Possession Average 29:35 29:56
Yards per Game 364.6 367.4
NFL Offensive Ranking 13 10
Rushing Yards/Game 83.2 111.4
Yards per Carry 3.2 4.4
Passing Yards/Game 281.4 256
Sacks Allowed 19/138 12/79
Green Zone TD Percentage 58.1 43.9
Offensive Touchdowns 27 25
Field Goals 10 28
The Giants are scoring more points, picking up more first downs and rushing the ball for many more yards than they were at this time last season. But their passing yardage is down and too many of the points have come via field goals because of their low touchdown percentage inside the opponents’ 20-yard line.

There are plenty of positives to build on when the Giants return to work on Monday. But they must reverse some recent trends in their six-game stretch run, beginning with a prime time home game on November 25 vs. Green Bay.

*The Giants’ three consecutive games with no more than one offensive touchdown is their longest streak since they went four in a row from Nov. 21-Dec. 12, 2004, in Coughlin’s and Manning’s first season with the Giants.

*The Giants’ yardage totals the last three games are 293, 182 and 318, the first time they’ve gone three consecutive games without hitting 320 since  Oct. 19-Nov. 2, 2008, when they gained 273, 282 and 319 yards in victories over San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Dallas.

*Net passing yardage the last three games: 190, 114 and 189, the Giants’ first three consecutive sub 200-yard passing games since Dec. 7-21, 2008 (123, 146 and 158 vs. Philadelphia, Dallas and Carolina).

*The Giants’ time of possession has been under 30 minutes each of the last four games, the first time that’s happened since they went seven in a row from Jan. 2 (the final game of the 2004 season) to Oct. 23, 2005.

*Manning has thrown a career-long 99 consecutive passes without a touchdown. The previous long was 84 passes from Sept. 26-Oct. 10, 2010.

*On Sunday in Cincinnati, the Giants had just one offensive play longer than 20 yards, the first time that happened since Nov. 21, 2010 vs. Philadelphia.

Some other statistical notes as we head into a weekend without Giants football:

*According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Giants have 31 pass plays of 20 yards, tied for eighth most in league. But they have allowed 39 pass plays of 20 yards, third most in league.

*The Giants were penalized just once for five yards in Cincinnati. It was their first game with just one penalty since Dec. 23, 2000, vs. ironically, Coughlin’s Jacksonville Jaguars. The last time they had as few as five penalty yards was Nov. 13, 1988 at Phoenix.

This was the fourth time in Coughlin’s 17 seasons as an NFL head coach his team had no more than one penalty. The Jaguars had no penalties in a loss to Pittsburgh on Dec. 1, 2002, one for three yards in a victory over Atlanta on Dec. 22, 1996, and one for five yards in a win over Cleveland on Sept. 3, 2000.

*David Wilson has 939 kickoff return yards. The Giants’ rookie record of 987 yards was set by Clarence Childs in 1964. Wilson has a chance to surpass the franchise record of 1,291 yards, set by Domenik Hixon in 2009.

*Sunday’s defeat belied two statistical trends. The Giants rushed for 129 yards and fell to 4-1 this year and 62-26 under Coughlin when they run for more than 100 yards. At the same time, they held the Bengals to 76 yards on the ground. They are 5-1 this season and 48-14 under Coughlin when the opposition rushes for less than 100 yards.

*Hakeem Nicks’ nine receptions in Cincinnati increased his career total to 238. That moved him past David Meggett (231) and Lionel Manuel (232) and into 16th place on the franchise’s career list. Just ahead of Nicks is Del Shofner at 239 and Alex Webster at 240.
*This season, Giants opponents have scored 108 points in the first half and 108 points in the second half.

*Andre Brown’s seven rushing touchdowns tie him for second in the NFL with Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson, Baltimore’s Ray Rice and Tampa Bay’s Doug Martin. The league-leader with 10 is Houston’s Arian Foster.

*Lawrence Tynes continues to lead the NFL in scoring with 109 points (16 more than New England’s Stephen Gostkowski) and 28 field goals (five more than Minnesota’s Blair Walsh).
