It's only a preseason game, but both of the Giants' running backs that ran with the first team looked impressive in their 2014 debuts.

Rashad Jennings, brought over from Oakland this offseason, totaled 23 rushing yards on seven carries and added 20 yards on three receptions. Rookie running back Andre Williams led the Giants in rushing with 48 yards and a touchdown on seven carries.

The Giants won the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio 17-13.

Williams broke some nice runs late in the first quarter, though the Bills had already subbed their second team defense in while the Giants still had their first group on the field.

Even so, both runners looked equipped for the job. And with David Wilson's NFL future in doubt, Williams will likely see a bigger role this coming season.
