NYG back line...something has got to be wrong

I guess I am not supposed to give specifics on Kubiak projections, but there is absolutely no way the NYG back line could be projected to combine to put up almost twice as many TDs as Adrian Peterson....RIGHT?

Just take David Wilson and Andre Brown's projections and add them together. Do those numbers seem right to you? I was really hoping there would be a piece about them in the "underrated" article, but there was not.

Last year, three New York Giants running backs combined for 18 rushing touchdowns.

Our projection say that this year, three New York Giants running backs will combine for 18 rushing touchdowns. (If you look at the decimals, Wilson and Brown only combine for 17.3. The other 0.7 are Da'Rel Scott.)

Ok, awesome, thanks for the response. I guess I was worried abotu split carries in New York, but I guess even with split carries they should put up decent numbers.
