EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants' sagging rushing attack, one of the worst in the NFL, got a huge boost from a rookie on Sunday. So now that they've seen what fourth-round pick Wayne Gallman can do, how can they possibly turn back now?
Ben McAdoo, of course, wouldn't reveal his future plans, but he did indicate that Gallman at least played his way into a piece of the Giants' running back rotation. The rookie from Clemson rushed 11 times in the Giants' loss to the Bucs for 42 yards and caught a four-yard touchdown pass.
That's hardly a sign that the Giants have found the next Ezekiel Elliott, but 42 rushing yards qualifies as opening the floodgates as far as the Giants are concerned.
