Sure, the Giants still rank last in the league with an average of 88 rushing yards per game.
But they showed a little life last week against the Jets [and we're not talking about Brandon Jacobs' post-game scuffle with Rex Ryan.
They ran for 115 yards, led by Ahmad Bradshaw's 54 yards and two rushing touchdowns.
Bradshaw thinks he and his fellow running backs will run with the same sense of urgency on Sunday night against the Cowboys.
"Ain't nothing going to change, man," Bradshaw said on Friday. "Everything's on the line."
Bradshaw says he "feels great" despite playing with a fractured bone in his foot.
Interestingly, Bradshaw thinks that the Giants will play well on Sunday because their backs are against the wall. This would confirm some fans' suspicions about the Giants' inconsistent play.
"I think this is what we want as a team," Bradshaw said. "When our back's against the wall, we play better. I think when we've got a lot on the line, we come together and play together."
RUST IS GONE FOR BASS: Center David Baas played for the first time in three weeks last Saturday against the Jets. He had missed the previous three games with neck pain and intense headaches. He says he feels no rust heading into Sunday's game against Dallas.
"I had a good week of practice," Baas said. "We went over multiple blitzes, lots of film. I feel ready, I feel good. Let's battle."
