In 2012, the New York Giants scored 429 points in the regular season, averaging 26.8 points per game and ranking them sixth in the league in the scoring category.
Of those 429 points, 306 (71 percent) were either field goals or touchdowns made inside of the red zone. In addition, of their 62 trips inside of the opponent’s 20-yard line, New York scored 56 times (34 touchdowns and 22 field goals).

During the 2013 preseason, the Giants scored 71 points (17.8 per game), which put them 22nd in the NFL. However, their red-zone performance was abysmal.
