Giants Week -- Can Manning and Gilbride Bag the Cowboys Nickel?
Posted by Rafael at Wednesday, December 07, 2011
The Cowboys finally meet the final member of their division, when they host the Giants Sunday night. This year's Giants offense does not resemble the most recent Tom Coughlin editions, which hammered Brandon Jacobs, Derrick Ward and Ahmad Bradshaw behind the best power running line in the East.
Jacobs and Bradshaw remain, but New York now rides on Eli Manning's arm. How much? They rank 32nd in rushing offense this season, and 4th in passing offense. Manning is having a career year, and may break the 5000 yard barrier.
