EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants’ 16-10 triumph over the Detroit Lions on Sunday was the 100th regular season victory in Tom Coughlin’s coaching career. Coughlin, who is in his 12th season as an NFL head coach, is the 33rd coach in league history to reach 100 career victories.

 

Immediately in front of him is Hall of Famer John Madden, who had 103 regular season victories as coach of the Oakland Raiders from 1969-78.

 

When postseason games are added, Coughlin has 104 victories. That leaves him one behind Tom Flores and Hall of Famer Vince Lombardi, each a two-time Super Bowl winner.

 

As the 7-3 Giants turn their attention to the Minnesota Vikings, whom they face Sunday in Giants Stadium, here is a look at Coughlin’s coaching career by the numbers.

Esoteric final note: In 186 regular season games, Coughlin’s teams have outscored the opposition by 315 points (4,081-3,766).

*Eli Manning threw for 283 yards in Sunday’s victory in Detroit. That raised his career total to 10,152 passing yards. He is the sixth quarterback to throw for more than 10,000 yards in a Giants uniform:

1. Phil Simms                33,462

2. Charlie Conerly        19,488

3. Kerry Collins            16,875

4. Fran Tarkenton         13,905

5. Y.A. Tittle                10,439

6. Eli Manning              10,152

Manning is on pace to throw for 3,364 yards and 24 touchdowns. He would join Simms as the only Giants quarterbacks with at least 3,000 passing yards and 20 touchdowns in three consecutive seasons. Simms accomplished the twin feats from 1984-86.

*The victory in Detroit continued the Giants’ impressive run of success indoors. The triumph in Ford Field was their fourth in a row and eighth in nine games in dome stadiums, dating back to the beginning of the 2002 season. The only loss in that stretch was a 45-7 defeat in New Orleans on Dec. 14, 2003, when the Giants were missing nine injured starters and Jesse Palmer was the quarterback.

Overall, the Giants are 22-12 in domed stadiums. They are 5-1 in Detroit, with victories in two stadiums, the Silverdome and Ford Field.

*The Giants lead the NFL with 34 sacks, three more than runner-up Seattle. That is two more sacks than they had in the entire 2006 season. Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora are tied for seventh place in the league with 8.0 sacks apiece, while Justin Tuck is tied for 14th with 7.0.
