All of the Giants want to make it to the Super Bowl, but one REALLY wants the team to go to New Orleans.

That’s running back Andre Brown, who broke his left fibula against the Packers on Nov. 25. The Giants put him on injured reserve with a designation to return after eight weeks, so the only way he can play again this season is if the Giants go to the Super Bowl.

“I told them that if they get me there I’ll take care of the rest,” Brown said on Monday. “I’m going to run like a bat out of hell. Just get me there, guys. I’m hungry. I want it. That’s why I’m working so hard to get back out there.”

Brown had surgery to realign the fractured bone but he is walking without a cast or crutches and expects to begin running next week.
