Let's play a game of "Did you know ...?"

Superlatives doesn't quite seem like the right word. It sounds a little too ... super.

But here are some of the facts that emerged from the 44-7 loss to the Vikings and, in some instances, the previous loss. Thanks to www.giants.com for enlightening us on them:

Did you know ... ?

Combined with the 41-9 loss to the Panthers, this is the first time in their history the Giants lost consecutive games by at least 32 points each. In 1948, they lost by 31 and 45 points in back-to-back games.

The 37-point loss was the Giants' worst since a 38-point defeat (45-7) at New Orleans on Dec. 14, 2003.

The Giants allowed at least 40 points in consecutive games for the first time since Dec. 12 and 19, 1971 (42-14 and 41-28 losses to Philadelphia and Dallas).

When the Giants trailed 44-0, it was their largest deficit in any game since Sept. 18, 1966, when they lost to Dallas, 52-7.

The Giants trailed at halftime, 31-0, one week after they faced a 24-0 halftime deficit. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this was the first time in their history the Giants faced consecutive halftime deficits of at least 24 points.

This was the first time the Giants were shutout in consecutive first halves since Sept. 24 and Oct. 1, 2000, against Washington and Tennessee.
