Giants run game struggling

The New York Giants throw the ball almost two-thirds of the time in the first half of their games (64.5%). They’ve essentially decided to use the passing game to set up their run game. That’s because their run game has struggled mightily through their first three games.

Their top three backs have rushed 74 times for 238 yards, good for an average of just 3.2 yards per carry. New York has a primary rushing back in Rashad Jennings, a power back in Andre Williams and a pass-catching back in Shane Vereen. Their running styles are different, but Bills DT Marcell Dareus doesn’t really care.

“It doesn’t really matter to me. A running play is a running play,” said Dareus. “You’ve got to get past me one way or another. You’re going to have to double team me or single block the same as everyone else. If you’re back there you still have to hit the hole.”
