Insane stat that needs clarification.

robbieballs2003 : 10/10/2018 6:03 pm
I just watched the video of O'Hara showing 2 Barkley runs against Carolina. At the end the host said that the Giants and Eagles have faced each other 100 times and asked how many times the Giants rushed for 100 yards. The answer was ONCE. He said it was Tiki Barber. We looked it up and Barber had done it twice in the same season one year so I think he mixed up his words. But even with Barber doing it at least two times that is just absurd if true.

Is there a place to check stats like this? I couldn't find anything.
It's not true.

Ahmad Bradshaw ran for over 100 against them on December 30th, 2012 for one.

Also, the Giants and Eagles have played each other 168 regular season games and 4 playoff games.
You can take an ancillary look

Actually, per pro football reference my date is correct.
Also, in the clip  
Diver_Down : 10/10/2018 6:21 pm : link
they prefaced the stat that we played them 199 times since the Superbowl era. Looking at PFF link, we have played 172 times in the history of the franchise. I randomly clicked on a game in 1936 and it had us rushing for 140 yards. So I think the stat that was cited was made up for dramatics.
I heard Dorsey Levens was impressive against them....  
Britt in VA : 10/10/2018 6:22 pm : link
but I don't know if he got 100 yards or not.
Dang it  
allstarjim : 10/10/2018 6:22 pm : link
I retract my correction as you have already retracted.

OMG I am so bad. I need an edit button.

It was on January 3rd, 2016 from the 2015 season. Sheesh. Last game before the post-season.

Yea sorry. I was never trying to correct. You basically beat me to the post as I looked up the same thing you did. I was trying to agree.

Don't drive or post tired. Ugh!
Thanks. I knew it didn't sound right.

yes, the tiki barber game I listed from 1997 would fit that.

Looking at the PFF link,

we have only won 5 games against them in the past decade. I hate the Eagles more than any other team. Dear Football Gods, please shine down on our Giants and guide them to a win tomorrow.
I'm surprised nobody got my Dorsey Levens reference....

Yep, 4-16 record against them over the last 20 games. Terrible.

You shouldn't, I got the reference and took your post at face value. I didn't remember Dorsey doing much in his brief time with us. I know he also had a stint with the Eagles but mainly remember him from his career as a Packer, he was pretty good then.

along with a picture of Levens was stuck as the BBI homepage photo for weeks. It was a meme before meme's were a thing.

The funny thing was that he wasn't all that impressive.

we do have a tendency to try out the horses in route to the glue factory. They should call us the NY whats best for your welfare Giants.
Hereís a real winner  
djm : 10/10/2018 10:25 pm : link
And I still fucking remember this game. I was 11 and watched every minute of it live. Without cheating Iím certain Butch woolfolk rushed for over 100 against Philly in 1983. I wanna say it was late in that dreadful year and I believe butch set a record for carries in a game that day with around 38-40 or so? Maybe it was an nyg record...

Yup  
djm : 10/10/2018 10:28 pm : link
It was in Philly week 12. Butch had 43 carries for 159 and a Td. Giants won 23-0.

Why do I remember shit like this.
Jamie Morris holds the record for carries in a game  
djm : 10/10/2018 10:31 pm : link
With 45. Butch is tied for second.

Hampton 8th with 41 against the rams 93.
Tiki  
Breeze_94 : 10/10/2018 10:41 pm : link
had multiple 100 yard games against them. I remember one where he ran for 200+ in a win and in game, but fumbled 3x
The biggest one of them all - Rob Carpenter in the 1981 Wild Card Game  
truebluelarry : 10/11/2018 7:31 am : link
161 yards on 33 carries.
