Eli Manning completed 41 of 54 passes for 441 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and a passer rating of 110.2 in the Giants' 30-27 victory over the 49ers on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. Here is where some of those statistics rank in his and Giants history:

* The attempts were a career high. His previous high attempts total was 53, which he set three times, most recently in the 2014 season finale against Philadelphia.

* The 41 completions represented a franchise record. The old mark of 40 was set by Phil Simms at Cincinnati on Oct. 13, 1985, almost exactly 30 years ago.

* Manning shattered his career high for completions. His previous best was 34, set in a loss to Tennessee on Sept. 26, 2010. His previous best completion total in a victory was 31, against Tampa Bay on Sept. 16, 2012.

* The 441 passing yards represented the third-highest total of Manning's career. He threw for 510 yards against Tampa Bay on Sept. 16, 2012, and 450 at Dallas on Sept 8, 2013. The Giants lost both of those games.

*Manning completed a career-high 15 consecutive passes over three series spanning the third and fourth quarters. The streak ended on an incompletion to Myles White with 5:54 remaining. Manning's previous best was 12 consecutive completions at Atlanta on Oct. 15, 2007.

*The victory was the 102nd of Manning's career (94 regular season, eight postseason). That is a franchise record. Manning had been tied with Simms (95 regular season, six postseason).
