Giants RB Brandon Jacobs failed to score a touchdown on three tries from inside the Raiders’ 5-yard line, but Ahmad Bradshaw was able to punch it in on the fourth attempt. That doesn’t bode well when the bigger back can’t score from that close against a bad run defense.
Also, Eli Manning did get the start in that contest.
In Buffalo, Browns RB Jamal Lewis is back and getting all the carries ahead of Jerome Harrison. Coach Eric Mangini expressed a lot of confidence in Harrison as a featured back earlier in the week, but those words haven’t kept Lewis from seeing most of the work.
Harrison could wind up hurting a lot of fantasy owners (including myself) this week.
