In the wake of the New York Giants’ upset win over the Seattle Seahawks a lot of attention is being paid to the Giants defense and how they pressured and confused Russell Wilson. Yes, all of that attention is warranted, and perhaps even more. But do not overlook what the Giants did on offense, especially on the ground in the third quarter. A big 60-yard burst from running back Wayne Gallman helped jumpstart the New York offense on their second drive of the second half, and Gallman had some other key runs in that quarter to key the win.
A few weeks ago, we dove into the Giants’ running game to highlight what was working. In this Film Room, we’ll dive back into the ground attack, looking at three runs from Gallman in the third quarter. We’ll see footwork and vision from the running back as well as how the guys up front created some creases for him:
Thanks to the upset, the Giants are in the thick of things in the division race. If the ground game keeps clicking like this, they might just win it.
