Giants-49ers scouting report
Giants on offense: New York’s rushing attack, stuck in neutral most of the season, has kicked it into hyperdrive in the playoffs. Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs form a potent 1-2 punch that can wear defenses down. Bradshaw (26 rushes, 126 yards in the postseason) has excellent vision and deceptive speed and power. He doesn’t have great moves but he will fight for extra yards. The 6-foot-4-inch, 264-pound Jacobs (23 rushes, 114 yards) is a load. He takes a while to get into a rhythm but once he does, he will steamroll opponents. Eli Manning is a cool customer - a smart quarterback with a strong, accurate arm. Hakeem Nicks has emerged a clutch playoff performer with 13 catches for 280 yards and 4 touchdowns. Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham are solid receivers.
