Coming off of a career day against the Cleveland Browns in which he rushed for 200 yards on 30 carries, New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is feeling pretty confident. And despite being matched up against the league's 7th best run defense this Sunday in the San Francisco 49ers, the veteran wouldn't rule out a repeat performance … or better.
“Expect the unexpected," Bradshaw said. “With this line, there’s no telling what we can accomplish and we’re just going to go out there and give it our all."
The 49ers have yet to surrender 100 yards to any one back through five games this season, with their worst performance coming against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who galloped for 86 yards on 25 carries. But Bradshaw says the Giants are ready for the type of violent, physical game the 49ers play, and will be able to successfully match their intensity.
“They’re just physical. They’re strong," Bradshaw said. "We like physical games. I do. I think we’re up for the task and I think we’re ready for it."
Bradshaw has only 28 yards rushing in his regular season career against the 49ers, but did put up 126 nets yards (74 rushing) in the 2011 NFC Championship game. He'll obviously need to do a much better job on Sunday if he plans to match or eclipse the performance he had against the Browns last week.
