EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Veteran New York Giants offensive lineman David Diehl looked at the NFL’s latest statistics for the running game and felt a little queasy.

The Giants, who have prided themselves in their ability to run the football in the Tom Coughlin era, are ranked near the bottom of the league after five weeks. Their 83.8 yard average is 28th out of 32 teams, and their 3.17-yard average per carry is next to last.

No Giants running back has rushed for 100 yards this season, and things may not improve much this week with Pro Bowl right guard Chris Snee’s status uncertain because of a concussion.
