RB – Alfred Morris: STUD
The Giants have certainly carved out a niche for Alfred Morris, and Morris is proving plenty worthy of meaningful carries. And in Sunday’s case, catches.
Morris scored the Giants’ first touchdown of the game, a four-yard touchdown run moments after Gallman’s 60-yard scamper, and later added a six-yard touchdown catch from Colt McCoy to extend the Giants’ lead to 14-5.
Sunday was Morris’ first multi-touchdown performance since the 2014 season.
While Dion Lewis struggled both in pass protection and on his three carries, Morris proved a worthy and productive complement to Gallman. He finished with eight carries for 39 yards and a touchdown along with his six-yard touchdown catch.
“They wanted to stack the box and make us one dimensional,” Morris said of the Seahawks. “We knew that we had to keep the run game going and so we had to continue to run hard. Wayne has done an amazing job with that. He lights a fire up in all of us, so I wanted to do my part.”
As the Giants keep rolling along, and seem to have found a winning formula by focusing on the running game, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Morris continue to play a meaningful role.
