The Giants have primarily leaned on Ahmad Bradshaw to lead their running game, but last week told a much different story.
Giants running back Andre Brown made a name for himself in Week 2 with his 71-yard performance against Tampa Bay. He followed that week up with a 113-yard showcase against Carolina.
After a 65-yard, one-TD performance against the Bengals in Week 10, Brown will be looking to carry that momentum into Sunday’s game and take advantage of a banged-up Packers line.
The Giants are also beginning to figure out the roles of each running back.
Brown, who has four TDs in the last four games, is being used primarily in red-zone series. Coughlin is using Bradshaw, who has more yards than Brown but only one TD in his last four games, as more of a scat back.
David Wilson’s carries have diminished over the last few weeks, but he’s finding his role in the return game, where he’s been a force.
The Giants' rejuvenated dual-threat running game will give them the upper hand on Sunday against the Pack.
