Rookie running back Roy Helu will be going for his fourth straight game with at least 100 yards rushing when the Redskins visit the Giants on Sunday. No Redskins rookie has ever had four 100-yard games in a season. If the Redskins are able to keep the score close against Eli Mannings explosive passing attack, Helu should have a reasonable chance of breaking the century mark. The Giants are 22nd in the league in rush defense as they give up 127.9 yards per game. Their opponents average of 4.7 yards per carry is 27th in the NFL New York has allowed six opposing running backs to gain 100 yards or more against them with LeSean McCoy of the Eagles doing it twice. A seventh back, Marshawn Lynch of the Seahawks, came close by picking up 98 yards in Week 5. Here are the 100-yard rushers against the Giants this year: Felix Jones, DAL, Week 14, 106 yards
LeSean McCoy, PHI, Week 11, 113 yards
Reggie Bush, MIA, Week 8, 103 yards
Fred Jackson, BUF, Week 6, 121 yards
Beanie Wells, ARI, Week 4, 138 yards
LeSean McCoy, PHI, Week 3, 128 yards
