Jacobs takes a knee

November
16

Brandon Jacobs spent most of the second half standing around on the sideline watching Derrick Ward and Ahmad Bradshaw finish what he started.

In all, the Giants piled up 207 yards rushing.

So much for the Baltimore defense. Jacobs believes it could’ve been a lot worse for the Ravens, who came in allowing 65.4 yards per game.

“It was supposed to be a lot more than that, but due to technical difficulties, or due to one bad wheel and one 265-pound guy not being able to be out there, it could’ve been a lot worse,” Jacobs said.

From the sounds of the postgame, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh didn’t exactly see it that way.

“Besides those (long) runs, we played good, tough, run defense,” he said. “They blocked three plays really well, ran three plays really well.”

Either way, Jacobs only carried the ball twice in the second half.

“He took a shot on the knee and he is sore, very sore,” Coughlin said. “So we are going to have to go through the whole routine.”

Jacobs played it down in a big way.

“It wasn’t bad,” he said. “I could’ve went back out and played, but we’ve got two other backs in there and there was no need to get out there and do that.”

    That was a satisfying game to watch for sure. All the talk about the Ravens no. 1 rush defense and questions about whether or not Big Blue could establish the ground game seem silly now.

    That first Giants drive was a statement for sure, Jacobs taking off for that big gain really stunned that “no. 1 rush defense” didn’t it?

    As for the rest of the game, I believe the Ravens are still throwing up leather from all the times Jacobs, Ward and Bradshaw shoved the ball down their throats.

    I hear that Jacobs is getting an MRI on that knee today. Anyone know any details about that?
