New York Giants' running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his play in the Giants' 27-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Bradshaw carried 26 times for 104 yards and three touchdowns.

So, who needs Brandon Jacobs, anyway?

With Jacobs out due to a knee injury Bradshaw shouldered most of the load and the Giants had their most effective game of the season running the football on Sunday. The 104-yard game was the team's first 100+ yard rushing performance of the season. He had four a season ago.

Bradshaw had three one-yard scoring runs and a 30-yard run on the Giants' final drive that set up the game-winning field goal.

Bradshaw is the second Giant to win Offensive Player of the Week honors this season. Quarterback Eli Manning was honored for his performance in a victory at Philadelphia in Week 3, when he completed 16 of 23 passes for 254 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in a 29-16 victory.
