WHAT TO LOOK FOR ON MNF : One more note to keep in mind for tonight's Monday Night Football game between the Giants and Cowboys…

New York Giants quarterback ELI MANNING, who last week became only the second player in franchise history to pass for more than 20,000 yards ( PHIL SIMMS), is 19-4 (.826) as a starter in October, the best record among quarterbacks who began their careers in the Super Bowl era (minimum 20 starts).

When the Giants travel to Dallas for a key NFC East matchup on Monday Night Football, Manning will be making his 24th October start. With a victory, Manning would record his 20th win as a starter in the month and become the fastest quarterback to 20 wins in October since 1970.
