NY Giants achieve rare NFL feat last two weekends

NY Giants achieve rare NFL feat last two weekends

Hyped by on December 20, 2012 Website: www.statsontapp.com

The New York Giants have had an up-and-down season this year and the last two games were a perfect example of that.

On December 9 the Giants put up 52 points in a 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints. Just seven days later, the Giants were shutout 34-0 by the Falcons. It was the third time since 1966 (start of the Super Bowl era) that a team has scored 50-plus points one week and then was shutout the following week.

Here’s a quick look at those three cases.

Score 50-plus one game, shutout the next (since 1966)

2012: New York Giants… scored 52 points on Dec. 9; shutout on Dec. 16.
2005: Washington Redskins… scored 52 points on Oct. 23; shutout on Oct. 30
1973: Atlanta Falcons… scored 62 points on Sept. 16; shutout on Sept. 23.
