Andre Williams lowers the boom and destroys Redskins defender (video)

New York Giants running back Andre Williams probably won’t be boasting about his yards per carry in Thursday night’s game against the Redskins.

Williams, who had only 12 carries combined during the season thus far, finally saw some action on Thursday but didn’t do much with the opportunity. Williams rushed 14 times for 29 yards (one touchdown), and averaging just over 2 yards per carry in the NFL just isn’t going to cut it.

But he did show how strong and explosive he can be on one particular play in the third quarter of the game, when he literally ran through a Redskins safety.

Williams received a handoff and was met by Trenton Robinson. That sure didn’t phase him, as the Giants running back lowered his shoulder and ran through Robinson—knocking him down in the process.

It’s running back by committee for the Giants right now, and head coach Tom Coughlin had to love Williams’ effort on that particular play.
