When the Minnesota Vikings (13-4) take the field you know it’s going to be a close game, as they have 11 wins by one score this season. One of those was a 27-24 win over the New York Giants on Christmas Eve in the Twin Cities. There are some saying the Giants are the worst team in the NFC postseason, and other who think Minnesota should be on upset alert so this should be a good one.
Before Betting on Giants vs Vikings
We know what Minnesota is going to try and do on Sunday, and that’s get the ball to Justin Jefferson who had 1,809 receiving yards this season. New York had no answer for Jefferson in the first meeting as he caught 12 balls for 133 yards while TE T.J. Hockenson had 13 catches for 109 yards and 2 TDs.
The Giants getting torched in the first meeting isn’t a shocker considering they ranked 25th in the NFL this year giving up 358.2 ypg. Where New York was most vulnerable though was against the run as their 144.2 ypg allowed ranked 27th in the NFL. In addition to their potent passing attack, Minnesota also has an 1,100+ yard rusher in Dalvin Cook.
The Giants took a 13-10 lead into the 4th quarter in the first meeting with Minnesota and outgained the Vikings 445-353 so they match up well here. NY QB Daniel Jones was 30/42 for 334 yards in that game and Saquon Barkley added a 27-yard TD run to tie the game 24-24 with just over 2 minutes left.
