Brees aside, Giants prepare for Saints RBs, too
 
There's more to the New Orleans Saints offense than Drew Brees these days, and the New York Giants know it.

While ranked 27th in the league in rushing, the Saints have a four-headed run attack that has averaged nearly 120 yards in the last five games.

If Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Chris Ivory and Mark Ingram get going on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, Brees is going to have another big game and the Giants (7-5) may not find themselves alone in first place in the NFC East afterward.

The Giants have been shaky against the run of late. Washington gained 207 yards rushing last week with running back Alfred Morris and quarterback Robert Griffin III combining for 196. The Redskins gained 151 in the second half.

In four of New York's losses, the opposition has rushed for at least 100.

''A lot of people talk about their pass game and that's what a lot of people focus on,'' Giants linebacker Michael Boley said. ''But they run the ball very well. They have four backs that can run it and they do a good job of putting those guys in good situations.''

Coach Tom Coughlin said the Saints also have a big offensive line that can open holes as well as protect Brees.

''We've been victimized by that before,'' Coughlin said. ''They rush the ball very well and the fullback (Jed Collins) is a good player.''

I love that they mention Jed Collins. He has been very good for our running game. And he can catch the ball but I never expect much from a check down to our full back.
