The Giants have an outside shot at having two 1,000-yard rushers for the second time in the last three seasons. With Ahmad Bradshaw already at a career-high 1,116 yards, Jacobs is now at 693 after rushing for a combined 306 yards in his last three games since getting the starter's job back.
Jacobs and Derrick Ward each rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2008.
"It would mean a lot, knowing what we have," said Bradshaw, who came into the season as the starter, but was demoted to No. 2 after a fumbling problem. Even so, he still gets plenty of carries. "I know it's a goal for us. Hopefully my big brother can get to 1,000 and we'll celebrate it together."
Bradshaw, who is extremely close to Jacobs, often refers to him as a big brother.
Bradshaw was the Giants' No. 3 back behind Jacobs and Ward in 2008. Back then, the trio was known as "Earth (Jacobs), Wind (Ward) and Fire (Bradshaw)." Any nicknames now?
"We’re just a two-headed monster," Bradshaw said. "It’s either one or the other. You’re going to get the left hand punch with one and the right-handed punch with the other."
