Giants vs. Falcons: Statistics, numbers and broken records

The New York Giants managed to choke away another game on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Atlanta Falcons, 17-14, on a last-second field goal.

Things get no easier in the coming weeks. Next up is the New Orleans Saints on the road — and New York is already an eight-point underdog.

But before we look ahead to the Week 4 game, let’s see what interesting stats, numbers and broken records were birthed from the Week 3 loss to Atlanta.

The Giants lost back-to-back on field goals as time expired for the first time since September/October of 2017.
The Giants have now lost three on last-second field goals under Joe Judge (19 games).
New York has fallen to 0-3 for the second straight season.
The Giants have recorded a takeaway in each of their first three games. The last time that happened was in 2013.
Rookie running back Gary Brightwell had his first career carry.
Collin Johnson made his Giants debut and led all receivers with five receptions (for 51 yards).
C.J. Board’s 38-yard reception was a career-long.
Azeez Ojulari recorded a sack for the third consecutive game. He’s the first Giants player ever (and first rookie ever) to record a sack in each of his first three games.
Ojulari is the first NFL player with a sack in his first three since 2017 (Myles Garrett).
Ojulari is the first Giants player with a sack in three consecutive since 2016 (Olivier Vernon).
Ojulari recorded his first forced fumble.
Linebacker Quincy Roche made his NFL debut.
Head coach Joe Judge lost his only challenge of the game and is no 0-3 for his career.
