Tom Coughlin says David Wilson and Brandon Jacobs will become ‘one-two’ punch

It’s gotta be tough right now to be not only a player for the New York football Giants, but also a fan. It’s still very early and this team has the talent to turn things around.

One place where they struggled the most besides their turnovers from Eli Manning is their running game. Right now New York is averaging only 58 yards per game, with David Wilson leading the team with 130 yards rushing on nearly 40 carries within the first four games.

If this team has any hopes of wanting to turn this around, they’re going to need to get their run game back into top shape. Head coach Tom Coughlin was asked if Wilson and Jacobs were the teams one-two punch and Coughlin responded with “Yeah, I think that’s safe to say.”, according to

This week the New York Giants will take on the Philadelphia Eagles who have allowed an average 122 rushing yards per game.

New York has allowed one more yard more, so Sunday we should see the Giants looking to spread the offense a little more instead of putting the team on Eli’s back.

Since being back with the Giants, Jacobs has only 11 yards on 11 carries but has a rushing touchdown.
