Wayne Gallman & Alfred Morris Grade: A
The “Wayne Train” keeps chugging and Alfred Morris chips in for two scores of his own to power the Giants 2nd half offense to victory.
It was refreshing to see the Giants play some smashmouth 60-minute football where they simply outclassed and outmatched a team (especially a 10-point favorite). The “hogmollies”up front are starting to truly show their hogmolly attitude and nastiness.
Whether it was the tackles going hunting up the field to the second level or Shane Lemieux playing fullback and leading the way for some first downs, it’s an exciting group to watch all of a sudden. 190 rushing yards was their most since beating Washington last season.
Wayne Gallman led the way for the offense Sunday, racking up 135 yards and nearly half the team’s total yardage output. Gallman woke the New York offense up with his 60-yard scamper off the left tackle as he took off down the sideline bringing NY deep into Seattle territory.
After Morris filled in for clean-up duty, Gallman sparked the next drive again and picked up another 23 yards with a big run. Morris handled it from there, with McCoy utilizing a well-executed play-action rollout with Morris running into the flats for his first career catch for six.
Seemingly, the NY Giants rolled out the 2014 Washington Redskins offense as Colt McCoy and Alfred Morris provided enough to lead the team to a win. Morris’ back-to-back touchdowns in the 3rd quarter made the difference in this game. Colt McCoy also picked up a huge 2-point conversion on a perfect pass to Sterling Shepard.
While it wasn’t pretty and by no means easy, the Giants offense did enough to win the game. They responded much better after halftime and the Fightin’ Joe Judges showed plenty of fight in this game. They did enough in the game’s last minutes picking up some crucial yards and taking precious time off the clock. Everyone is anticipating a Daniel Jones return this week and hopefully, he will also rejuvenate the struggling passing game for Big Blue.
