He did. With 104 yards rushing and three one-yard TD dives, Bradshaw had his best day as a Giant, rivaling his 2007 breakout game which was also against Buffalo.
Bradshaw was especially candid in his post game presser after logging in the first 100-yard performance by a Giant this season...

Coach Tom Coughlin on being 4-2 at the bye:
I would like to be 6-0, but this is a hard-earned win. To be 4-2 right now and have the bye and to be an optimist if I may, maybe we do get some guys back after this two week period. That can help us. You have to take your hat off to the guys who went out today and played the way they did from a team concept, displaying once again the mental toughness that we always talk about. We are a team and whoever is called upon has to step up and make a play.

RB Ahmad Bradshaw has a pair of TD runs and QB Eli Manning has thrown for 211 yards on 13 for 20 passing. He has not been sacked nor has he been intercepted.
The defense has surrendered huge chunks of yards again, allowing an 80-yard TD run by Buffalo RB Fred Jackson along with a 60-yard TD reception to WR Naaman Roosevelt.
DE Justin Tuck, OL Chris Snee, RB Brandon Jacobs, FB Henry Hynoski, CB Prince Amukamara, T James Brewer and DT Dwayne Hendricks
C David Baas and LS Zak DeOssie are both active. Baas will start at center; Jason Pierre-Paul will be in for Tuck again; Kevin Boothe will be at RG in Snee's spot and Bear Pascoe goes back to FB, replacing Hynoski.
The surprising 4-1 Buffalo Bills charge into MetLife Stadium to face the 3-2 New York Giants.
Last week, the Giants fell at home, 36-25 to the Seattle Seahawks while the Bills took advantage of the sloppy Philadelphia Eagles in Buffalo, 31-24.

The weather will be perfect for football - mid-60's and sunny. There are plenty of great seats to be had...just click the title link of this post to view....
OL Chris Snee (concussion), DE Justin Tuck (neck, groin), RB Brandon Jacobs (knee), FB Henry Hynoski (burner) and CB Prince Amukamara (foot) have all been ruled out of Sunday's game vs Buffalo.
LS Zak DeOssie (concussion) and C David Baas (neck) are still questionable. LB Michael Boley (knee) and DE Osi Umenyiora (knee) are both probable.
This is the point the Giants are at right now. Their running game cannot get much worse. At 3.2 yards per carry, they aren't scaring anyone. Throw in Brandon Jacobs' swollen knee and the injuries on the offensive line and they are dead in the water.
Ahmad Bradshaw is one of the league's best backs, but without support he has little chance to get into any kind of rhythm. They need a player that makes defenders miss.
How will the Giants' porous run defense fare against the Bills' explosive rushing tandem of Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller? Even more important - can the Giants' offense secure the ball vs the ballhawking Bills' defense?

From the NFL....
At least they know this much: neither team is playing a stitch of defense. The Giants get the 3-point nod because they are at home. Not that that matters, since they are only 6-4 at the new stadium. Since MetLife opened last year, the Giants have won more games on the road (7) then they have at home.
The Bills are 3-0 at Orchard Park this year and 1-1 on the road. They are 4th in the league in rushing and aren't very careless with the football, sporting a league-best +11 turnover ratio. The Giants will have to earn this one.
