Week 3: vs Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Rashad Jennings went over 100 yards combined last week, with 18/65/0 rushing and 4/45/0 receiving for Big Blue. To date, Jennings is the 12th-ranked running back in the NFL with 34/110/1 rushing and 8/95/0 receiving to his credit. The Giants' rushing attack is in good hands with Jennings. Andre Williams remains a sidekick with 8/12/0 rushing and 2/7/0 receiving vs. Arizona last week. The Texans' rush D is ranked 18th in the NFL after two games, averaging 116 rushing yards allowed per game with two rushing scores given out to date. Oakland managed 17/101/1 rushing vs. the Texans last week. They solidified the front after losing Jadeveon Clowney in Week 1, and allowing 23/131/1 to Washington's committee of backs. Jennings is going great guns, while the Texans are just so-so in this phase of the game - advantage, New York.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs DET (16 / 46 / 1 rush, 5 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)

Rashad Jennings struggled to find running room against the Lions on Monday, save for a few decent runs later in the game. The Giants gave him a lot of simple dive plays up the middle against Detroit but most of these plays were stuffed at the line of scrimmage by the strong Detroit front 7. Jennings was frequently met at or near the line of scrimmage and had nowhere to go. Jennings also dropped an easy pass in the flat from Manning which easily could have been converted into a first down. Jennings found some room from the shotgun and was able to show some burst up the middle with a delayed handoff, getting a nice push from his offensive line also. Jennings had a shot at a goal line carry in the first half but there was too much penetration from Detroit and he had no room to work with. Jennings showed more reliable hands later in the game as he caught a short pass in the flat from Manning and found a lot of open space down the sideline to set up a redzone opportunity. Jennings later converted this redzone chance as he dove for the goal line and outstretched the football just enough for the refs to signal a touchdown. Jennings played a decent game overall, considering the passing game was not a threat and the Lions could focus on stuffing the run at times. He was clearly the lead back in this offense and stayed on the field in obvious passing situations, showing his versatility out of the backfield as a receiver.

2014 Week 2 vs ARI (18 / 64 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)

Rashad Jennings wasn't able to accumulate a lot of rushing yards or touchdowns on Sunday against the Cardinals but he performed as well as can be expected given the game situation. The Giants used Jennings as their primary back and they were determined to stick with the run throughout the game, despite the lack of production at times. Jennings looked elusive early as he broke a tackle in the flat after a short pass from Manning and got a lot of yards after catch. Jennings isn't a supremely talented running back but has good vision and tends to choose the correct hole when sizing up the defense. Though his statistics were not very impressive, he did convert a lot of third downs on the ground for New York and had to fight at the line of scrimmage for every yard. Jennings proved to be an effective weapon in the passing game and he took a short screen pass down the sideline for a big first down. The Giants gave him the ball on the 1 yard line after a defensive penalty set them up in the redzone but Jennings simply got overwhelmed with penetration from Arizona. Jennings had a poor turnover late in the game however which was the final straw for New York. Jennings slipped as he attempted to elude a defender and fell to the ground which caused the ball to pop out from his grasp and it was subsequently picked up by Arizona. He played consistently well for the most part and gave the Giants some production on the ground but the running game is not to be feared as it stands and the whole Giants offense let a lot of points on the field on Sunday.
