The Giants' defense has always prided itself on stopping the run.
If the running game is shut down, the opponent becomes one dimensional and the Giants' pass rushers can make life miserable for opposing quarterbacks.
The problem is that is something the Giants haven't done the past two weeks despite beating Philadelphia and Arizona.
The Eagles gashed the Giants (3-1) for 177 yards on the ground, with LeSean McCoy picking up 128. The Cardinals followed by gaining 156 yards, with Beanie Wells getting 138.
It's not a winning formula, and coach Tom Coughlin intends to take "extraordinary means" to solve the problem this week against the Seahawks (1-3).
The Seahawks are averaging just 67.5 yards on the ground (31st in the league), so the Giants are likely to have plenty of success against the run in Week 5.
