Are you kidding me? So are we expected to believe Atlanta will turn the tables where San Fran and Green Bay have failed?
This week the Giants go to Atlanta with a chance to do the same thing to the team that has played the best regular-season football in the NFC this year.
“I told him several times never to do that again,” Tuck said Wednesday. “We’re going to have another talk about not doing it.”
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that he has not ruled out running back Ahmad Bradshaw from Sunday’s matchup in Atlanta, despite a knee injury.
The 2012 first-round pick was brilliant from start to finish, returning four kickoffs for 227 yards, including a 97-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He also added 100 rushing yards and two touchdowns. His 327 all-purpose yards set a franchise record.
The madness continued in Week 14. The Chargers bombed the Steelers in Pittsburgh, the Falcons get Cam’ed in Carolina, the Pats flexed their muscles against Houston and the 9-4 Ravens fired their offensive coordinator after blowing a game in D.C.
With three games left, the Giants (8-5) have a one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington (7-6) and Dallas (7-6). If they win their final three games, they’ll win the division title for a second straight year.
The presence of an explosive return man and running back gives the Giants an element that they did not have previously, and one that they may need the rest of the way.
It’s gibberish. Beyond the obvious, athletic splendor of pro football, the primary reason we watch it is the palpable, inherent danger. To deny that is to deny us.
One down, three to go – thanks to the type of performance that will get the Giants to where they want to go.
David Wilson didn’t just crawl out of Tom Coughlin’s doghouse, he busted it to pieces and then danced on the splinters.
Rookie David Wilson had a breakout game, recording 327 all-purpose yards as the Giants steamrolled the Saints — 52-57.
He could have beaten up his team over their up-and-down play. Rather he’s told the Giants, who hold a one-game lead in the NFC East at 7-5, they have to win their final four games.
In some ways the rematch with the Washington Redskins turned out to be a reverse of their first meeting. The Giants will be looking hard in the mirror after this one, as they were penalized nine times for 73 yards.
Coach Tom Coughlin and his players have experienced the phenom known as RGIII — and they escaped in Week 7, winning 27-23. But the Washington Redskins no longer have that element of surprise on their side.
