2. Wayne Gallman rushes for 50 yards but scores 2 touchdowns
Wayne Gallman’s dominant, punishing running style has been revelatory for the Giants in recent weeks.
Gallman enters Sunday’s game averaging four yards per carry and riding a five-game touchdown streak.
However, the closest Gallman has come to rushing for 100 yards this season was his 94-yard and one touchdown performance in last Sunday’s 19-17 win over the Bengals. Sunday’s unlikely to be the day he reaches that plateau.
The Seahawks’ rushing defense enters allowing an average of 982 yards per game, third fewest in the NFL, and held the Eagles to just 70 rushing yards on Monday night.
The Giants are likely to make a concerted effort to get Gallman involved, and the offensive line has improved dramatically in recent weeks, but, it’s difficult to envision Gallman having much room to run if Seattle loads the box and dares McCoy to beat them through the air.
With that said, don’t be shocked if Gallman still finds a way to add two more touchdowns to his total …
