Week 1 vs. DAL
Rushing: 6 / 26 / 0
Jacobs gained 26 yards on six carries, and had a two yard run negated by a penalty. Late in the first half a player collided with the side of his knee, causing him to leave the game. Jacobs was unable to return and will undergo an MRI to discover the severity of the injury.
Week 5 vs. NYJ
Rushing: 20 / 100 / 1
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
Jacobs returned to the Giants lineup and started off very slow. He fumbled his second carry of the ball game early in the first quarter, which was returned for a New York Jets touchdown. Jacobs battled through his fumbling problems to post 100 yards on 20 rushes while adding a touchdown of his own. He hit the holes hard all day and was the running back on the field as the second half started with the Giants trailing.
Week 6 vs. ATL
Rushing: 13 / 86 / 0
Receiving: 1 / 2 / 0 on 1 targets
Jacobs had to leave the game after carrying the ball on the first play of the game for the Giants. He came to the sideline holding his shoulder, and it was reported that he suffered a burner in his shoulder. He returned to the game about six plays later. Jacobs broke off a nice 20 yard run down the left side of the sideline on the Giants second drive of the game. In somewhat of surprise, RB Reuben Droughns got the goal line carry from the Falcons' one yard line and the touchdown run on that drive. Droughns had been getting the goal line carries while Jacobs was out with his knee injury until last week. Jacobs is 6' 4", and 260 pounds, and one would expect him to get most of the looks around the goal line. His shoulder injury on the first play of the game may explain why he did not get the short yardage carries in the first half. He had five carries for 36 yards in the first half.
Jacobs had his second big run of the game early in the third quarter when he had a 20 yard run down the right sideline. New York ran the ball more in the second half as they built on their lead and tried to run down the clock. He finished the second half with seven carries for fifty yards, and had some nice runs in the game.

Rushing: 23 / 131 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 6 / 0 on 3 targets
Jacobs carried the ball 23 times for 131 yards, catching the ball twice for six yards on three targets. Jacobs started the game, and was the Giants every down running back throughout. As always he ran with great power, showing the strength you'd expect from a player his size. Mid way through the third quarter Jacobs limped to the sideline, and Reuben Droughns replaced him. On the next drive Jacobs was back on the field though, so the injury did not appear to be serious.
Week 10 vs. DAL

Receiving: 3 / 11 / 0 on 4 targets
Jacobs had an up and down day as he ran hard, gaining a total of 81 yards on 22 carries, and three receptions.

Week 15 vs. WAS
Rushing: 25 / 130 / 0
Receiving: 3 / 30 / 0 on 11 targets
Jacobs was the primary running back for the Giants. He ran the ball with force all night, at one time knocking the wind out of Fred Smoot who tried to hit him. However, he dropped a ton of passes on the night, as seen by the 11 targets and only three receptions on short routes. Jacobs looked like he had a slight injury late in the game, but it was unclear what the injury was to as he just ran off of the field and Ruben Droughns came in.
Week 16 vs. BUF

Receiving: 1 / 6 / 0 on 2 targets
A career day for Jacobs as he gained 145 yards on 24 carries for two touchdowns as he beat up the undersized Buffalo front seven.
