An interesting factoid that you may not be aware of is that since 2009, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth have called exactly half of all the Giants vs. Cowboys games. Which essentially means that if you’ve watched Sunday Night Football since 2009, you also watched exactly half of all the Giants vs. Cowboys games. What can I say? Sometimes math is very kind to me. Granted, this math probably applies equally to any Cowboys/Eagles, Ravens/Steelers, and Manning/Brady games, with a few Pats/Colts and Seahawks/49ers match-ups thrown in, so what I’m basically saying I guess is that NBC loves ratings and schedules their games accordingly. This incredible deduction by yours truly may or may not have been because I’m a fan of BBC’s Sherlock… but it certainly didn’t hurt.
By the Numbers
5,789 – The amount of times news outlets have announced that Darren McFadden and Joseph Randle will be the lead back in tonight game.
1989 – The year Jason Garrett graduated from Princeton.
1989 – Times that Jason Garrett has called an outside shovel pass on 3rd and long.
1988 – The number of times that said shovel passes have not worked…
28 – The amount of juice boxes Eli Manning drinks per day.
Take one sip of beer if…
The camera shows Tony Romo sitting on the bench causally watching the jumbotron.
If they show the jumbotron.
Coughlin is chewing gum, cocks his sideways, and puts his hands on his hips.
Jason Garrett calls a dumb toss, reverse, or draw on a 3rd-and-five or more.
During every shameless plug for NBC’s sh*tty shows. (Take two sips if it’s for that stupid Heroes: Reborn nonsense. Take three sips if it’s for that equally stupid Blind Spot show.)
Take one shot of liquor if…
Jerry Jones is seen in the booth with a surly look.
You see a Giants defensive player put up his hands in confusion.
The Giants get into the redzone and end up settling for a field goal.
Finish all the alchohal in your house if…
