Third and strong

The Giants are tied for the NFL lead in third-down defense, allowing teams to convert only 30 percent of the time. Not a bad turnaround considering that after three weeks, they were allowing teams to convert on 43.9 percent of their chances (18-for-41). A look at how the Giants have stopped opponents on third downs during their four-game winning streak:

Bears 0-for-13 0 percent

Texans 2-for-11 18 percent

Lions 9-for-20 45 percent

Cowboys 0-for-10 0 percent

Total 11-for-44 25 percent
