Giants QB Eli Manning was complemented by a 1-2 punch of a running game made up of rookie Andre Williams and free-agent addition Rashad Jennings, who took much of the pressure off the passing attack [on the team's scoring drive].
The focus on a ground game is part of the new wrinkles being introduced by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.
"I thought there were some improvements. It was a good start," Manning said.
Broadcaster Cris Collinsworth raved over Williams on that drive, and he was impressive. However, the broadcast team also said it was against Bills second-teamers. Collinsworth feels that Williams will be a lot more than just a backup to Jennings this season. Williams has been working in goal line situations in camp, but perhaps could be poised for a Brandon Jacobs kind of role, which could put a dent in Jennings potential.

RB Brandon Jacobs has retired from the NFL.
After 9 years in this whirlwind business they call the NFL, I am proud to announce that I am hanging up my cleats. I've had an amazing run and I appreciate all of the support from the fans through the good and the bad. The New York Giants are a great organization and I am proud to have been a part of it for so long. I love my coaches and my teammates and will miss them as well as the game itself but I am healing well from my surgery and I look forward to running around with my kids for years to come!
Jacobs' swan song was a 22-carry, 106-yard, two-TD performance against the Bears in Week 6.
