This Giants Thanksgiving stat is incredible (and a bit misleading)

The Giants have not scored an offensive touchdown on Thanksgiving since before World War 2.

No, that is not an exaggeration. It’s a fact.

The Giants have played 15 Turkey Day games — Thursday’s meeting with the Cowboys in Arlington, Texas, will be the 16th. All of them have been on the road. And the Giants have not had an offensive player score a touchdown since 1938, when they tied the Brooklyn football Dodgers at Ebbets Field.

The stat comes with a bit of an asterisk. The Giants have rarely played on Thanksgiving in the NFL’s modern era.
