GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Ryan Grant's runs added balance to the Green Bay Packers' offense in the second half of the season, but Grant was uncharacteristically quiet against his former team on Sunday.
"They shut down the run pretty well, so we had to try some different things passing the ball," Grant said. "But we tried to stay with it -- they just played better than us."
Instead, they shut him down.
"The first thing we wanted to do was stop the run," Giants defensive end Michael Strahan said. "Ryan Grant had a great game last week. Stopping the run was very key."
"We didn't have to sack him," Strahan said. "We just had to make him uncomfortable in the pocket."
