Giants finally get moving on ground

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — For a change, the Giants didn't have to rely solely on Eli Manning's arm. They are heading into the bye week with hope, now that they've found a running game.

Ahmad Bradshaw ran for season-high 104 yards and a career-best three touchdowns and Lawrence Tynes kicked a go-ahead 23-yard field goal with 1:32 left as New York moved into first place in the NFC East.

"This is a huge win for us," guard David Diehl said. "Coming into this game, we had a lot of things on our minds, with No. 1 being getting the run game going. Ahmad had a huge game for us, over 100 yards, three touchdowns and he ran hard all game. The other thing was we constantly said all week we can't turn the ball over against this team. This was a team scoring 14 points a game off turnovers. We wanted to control the ball."

Bradshaw become the first Giants back to gain 100 yards, scoring each time from a yard out.
