New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was sorely missed Sunday as the Falcons pulled off the blowout. Baltimore is on schedule next for New York and the Ravens looked decidedly human last week. In Bradshaw's absence, the well-hyped rookie David Wilson had 13 touches for 66 yards. Nothing to scoff at, but the goose egg on the scoreboard says it all. The G-Men have lost four of their last six games and are at risk of missing the playoffs entirely.
Bradshaw needs to start if he plays as the Giants were still reluctant to seriously consider their rushing attack led by Wilson. New York is currently ninth in the NFC standings with Dallas, Chicago, Minnesota, and Seattle all ahead of them in the wildcard. Baltimore has the 26th-ranked run defense in the NFL so don't hesitate to consider Bradshaw or even Wilson again, whichever is the starter.
