INDIANAPOLIS -- Running backs are supposed to wear down toward the end of the season, but the Giants' tandem -- Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs -- are running with more power and giddy-up.

As a team, the Giants averaged 1.58 yards after contact per rush in the regular season, third-worst in the NFL. In the postseason, the Giants have picked it up considerably, averaging 2.13 yards after contact.
