EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — There's more to the New Orleans Saints offense than Drew Brees these days, and the New York Giants know it.
While ranked 27th in the league in rushing, the Saints have a four-headed run attack that has averaged nearly 120 yards in the last five games.
What makes the Saints' running game interesting is that Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Chris Ivory and Mark Ingram all have their own styles and have an outstanding fullback in Jed Collins leading the way.
The Giants have been shaky against the run, at best this season. Washington gained 207 yards on the ground last week as tailback Alfred Morris and quarterback Robert Griffin III combined for 196. The Redskins gained 151 yards rushing in the second half.
