Week 9: at New York Giants
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Trent Richardson is currently nursing an injured hamstring, and though he was active as the #3 emergency running back vs. Pittsburgh last week, he didn't play a down. The above means that right now Ahmad Bradshaw is the clear-cut featured running back for the Colts, and he showed us what he can do in that role last week with 6/35/1 rushing and 7/52/0 receiving (Indianapolis was in chase mode all day as Ben Roethlisberger had his career day throwing for 522 net yards and six TDs). If the game had been closer Bradshaw would have had more carries to his credit (Indianapolis only tried ten runs last week). We'd anticipate that Bradshaw headlines again this week while Richardson gets his hamstring healthy on the sidelines.
The Giants' rush D is ranked 22nd in the NFL averaging 122.0 yards given up per game, and they've coughed up a healthy eight rushing scores so far this season. New York is coming off a bye week, but allowed 35/156/1 rushing to the Cowboys two weeks ago and 36/203/1 rushing to the Eagles two games back - they've been soft in this phase of late.
Advantage, Bradshaw and the Colts.
