5. Need More From Rushing Attack

The Giants rushed for 99 rushing yards in this game which sounds pretty respectable. Eli Manning however had eight of those yards on a broken down passing play and Dwayne Harris had 11 rushing yards. The Giants running backs totaled a combined 80 yards. In a grind it out style of a game the Giants could have used more from their running backs on the ground.

The Giants couldn’t get the offense going at several junctures of this game. The run game would have added an extra element to the offense that would have made it harder for the Cowboys to stop. Maybe if the Giants had given Rashad Jennings more than 13 carries he would have had a big day; he did average 4 yards per carry.

Andre Williams and Shane Vereen did little on the ground. Andre Williams averaged just 2.3 yards per carry on the evening. Vereen did have a big third down run. That being said the Giants needed more on the ground last night.
