Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin Join NFL Record Books As They Head To Indianapolis

The New York Giants beat the San Francisco 49ers in a thrilling NFC Championship game on Sunday night and Eli Manning set a new record in the process. Manning won his fifth road game, which is a new NFL record. He won three straight road games in the Giants first Super Bowl run back in January 2008 and he won two this year in the divisional round and, on Sunday night, the NFC Championship game.

Manning's not the only Giant with new NFL records for road wins. Head coach Tom Coughlin tied Tom Landry with seven career road playoff wins.

Manning is only 30 years old so he'll likely have a chance to extend his record, and it wouldn't surprise me if Coughlin passed Landry sometime in the next couple of years.

The Giants are a well-tested team away from their home stadium, which is good news as they head to Indianapolis to face the New England Patriots in the 2012 Super Bowl.

Here's a look at the complete NFL playoffs bracket. For more on the Patriots and their Super Bowl run, check out SB Nation's Patriots blog, Pats Pulpit as well as SB Nation Boston. For more on the Giants and their Super Bowl appearance, visit Giants blog Big Blue View and SB Nation New York.
