Wayne Gallman becomes first Giants RB to rush for 100 yards
The Giants have yet to have a running back rush for 100 yards this season, and with Devonta Freeman headed to injured reserve, and out for Sunday’s game, this feels like the week that Wayne Gallman breaks out.
Gallman proved the more explosive of the Giants’ running backs last week, when paired with Alfred Morris, and he scored a rushing touchdown in the first meeting against the Eagles. He could be in line for an even more expanded role this week, and if the Giants commit to the ground game as they did against Washington, it should present another opportunity for Gallman to make a run at 100 rushing yards.
The Eagles’ rushing defense is surrendering an average of 130.8 rushing yards per game, including 158.3 per game over the past three weeks. So, the opportunity for Gallman, or Morris, is there for a breakout performance on the ground, and I think Gallman finally eclipses 100 yards.
