CANTON, Ohio - Andre Williams ran up some big numbers at Boston College. Filip Forsberg Predators Jersey . The fourth-round draft pick is showing glimpses that can do it for the New York 
Giants, too. Williams had seven carries for 48 yards and scored on a 3-yard run
in a 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night in the
preseason-opening Hall of Fame Game. "It gives me confidence. I feel like Im
supposed to be here," said Williams, who led the nation with 2,177 yards rushing
last season. "Im part of the team now." And a more important part with
David Wilson sidelined after sustaining his second neck injury in less than a
year. Filling the No. 2 spot behind newly acquired starter Rashad Jennings, the
Heisman Trophy finalist helped provide the Giants re-tooled backfield a 1-2
punch. "I though he played well, and that was encouraging," coach Tom Coughlin
said. "David Wilsons injury not-withstanding, its very important to us no matter
what, because you need a natural rotation." Williams score, which came after a
21-yard scamper off left tackle, put the Giants up 7-3 late in the first
quarter. Rookie receiver Corey Washington scored the go-ahead touchdown on a
73-yard pass up the right sideline from backup Ryan Nassib with 13:18 remaining.
Washington reached back to catch the partly under-thrown pass, then stepped
around flat-footed defender Kamaal McIlwain. Nassib, competing for the backup
spot, went 7 of 12 for 139 yards. Starter Eli Manning played three series, and
finished 6 of 7 for 43 yards, but lost a fumble. For Buffalo, starting
quarterback EJ Manuel had several lapses during two series. He completed just 2
of 7 attempts for 19 yards, and nearly had a pass intercepted by linebacker
Jacquian Williams inside the New York 10. Manuel never looked off his intended
target Sammy Watkins and was fortunate to have Williams bat the ball down. "I
would have liked to throw a touchdown pass or to score a touchdown while I was
in, but its our first game," said Manuel, the second-year player who has been
inconsistent through the first two weeks of training camp. "We got our feet wet,
and were looking forward to moving on to playing Carolina." Coach Doug Marrone
didnt sound as positive regarding the play of any of his quarterbacks.
"Obviously, the performances were not good for a win," Marrone said. "Weve got
to get better, all of them." Bills backup Jeff Tuel hit Robert Woods for a
2-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal to put Buffalo ahead 10-7 early in the
second quarter. Tuel finished 12 of 17 for 74 yards and an interception.
Watkins, the Bills first-round pick, was held without a catch after being
targeted three times. Two passes from Manuel directed Watkins way were tipped.
Manuel also was late in finding Watkins flying up the left sideline, and
overthrew him by a few yards. It was a disappointing debut for Watkins, who had
made numerous highlight-reel catches during the first two weeks of training
camp. Dan Carpenter made two field goals, including a 51-yarder. New Yorks
Brandon McManus hit a 47-yard field goal The Bills are coming off a 6-10 season
in which they extended their playoff drought to 14 seasons — the NFLs longest
active streak. The Giants (7-9) had a busy off-season attempting to restock a
team that has missed the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. The NFL
unveiled a few new wrinkles that will run through the first two weeks of the
preseason. New Yorks Josh Brown hit two and Carpenter hit his extra-point
attempt, all of which were snapped from the 15-yard line rather than the 2.
NOTES: Giants TE Daniel Fells left because of a sprained knee. ... Coaches and
players on the sidelines also had the opportunity to view pictures of plays on
tablets and in colour — an improvement over the black-and-white still photos
that were printed off on paper. Marrone said his tablet initially didnt work.
The problem was fixed and he used the technology in the second half. ... The
game was played a day after the seven-member 2014 class was inducted into the
Pro Football Hall of Fame. The group included former Giants defensive end
Michael Strahan and former Bills receiver Andre Reed. James Neal Predators Jersey . For the Athletics, hes extremely important at the top of the order, especially with
