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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.
