PHILADELPHIA – Notes and statistics from the Giants' 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in an NFC Divisional Playoff Game in Lincoln Financial Field:

*The sixth-seeded Giants finished their first season under coach Brian Daboll with a 10-8-1 record, while the top-seeded 15-3 Eagles advanced to the NFC Championship Game next week against the winner of Sunday's Dallas-San Francisco game.

*The Giants' postseason record fell to 25-26, including 9-16 as visitors and 2-3 vs. Philadelphia. They are 21-13 in playoff games since the 1970 merger, including 9-8 on the road and 5-7 in divisional round games.

*The Giants have played seven postseason games since 1990 against teams seeded No. 1 (four in the NFC and three in the AFC) and this was their first loss.

*The Giants are the 25th team since 1970 to lose twice an opponent in the regular season and meet that team a third time in the postseason. Those teams are 9-16 in the third game, including 6-13 on the road.

*The Giants, who fell twice to the Eagles in their final five regular-season games, lost three games to one team in a single season for the first time in their history.

*The Giants are 4-3 against NFC East opponents in postseason play since 1970: 2-3 vs. Philadelphia and 1-0 against both Dallas and Washington.

*The Giants' lost their 10th consecutive game in Lincoln Financial Field, including nine in the regular season, their longest streak in one stadium in franchise history.

*The Giants have allowed 38 points in each of their last two postseason defeats, including a 38-13 wild card loss in Green Bay in 2016.

*The Giants trailed at halftime, 28-0, their largest deficit after two quarters in their 51-game postseason history. The previous standard for a one-sided postseason half was set on Dec. 31, 1961, when the Giants were behind 24-0 in a 37-0 loss to the Packers in Green Bay in the NFL Championship Game.

*It was the second time in three games the Giants did not score a first-half point, and both were against the Eagles. In the regular-season finale on Jan. 8, the Giants – who played mostly reserves in that game - trailed at half, 16-0, and lost, 22-16.

*The Eagles held statistical advantages in total yards (416-227), rushing yards (268-118), first downs (26-13) and time of possession (35:43-24:17). Philadelphia also converted 10 of 14 third down opportunities (71.4%) and scored touchdowns on all four of their first-half trips into the red zone.

*Philadelphia's 268 rushing yards are the most ever for a Giants opponent in a postseason game. The former mark of 246 was set by the Detroit Lions in the NFL Championship Game on Dec. 15, 1935. It is the most rushing yards allowed by the Giants in any game since the Seattle Seahawks ran for 350 yards on Nov. 9, 2014. The Eagles rushed for 253 yards in their victory against the Giants in MetLife Stadium on Dec. 11.

*The Giants scored their only points with 6:15 remaining in the third quarter on an eight-yard run by Matt Breida. After lining up in a wildcat formation with Jones going in motion to the right side, Saquon Barkley took the shotgun snap and handed off to Breida, who scored his first career postseason touchdown.
