Giants 21, Vikings 3

Posted: December 14, 2010 in Giants

The Giants’ defense dominated an inept Vikings team tonight, setting up a huge showdown with the Eagles for the division lead next week at the Meadowlands.
Eli Manning had his second straight “blah” performance, throwing a pair of picks early on, including one deep in Giants’ territory to set up the Vikings’ field goal.
Minnesota led 3-0 early in the second when the Giants started ramming the ball down their throats with the 1-2 punch of Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. For the second straight week, the Giants had 200-plus rushing yards, and they’ll need a big performance next week to keep Michael Vick and the vaunted Eagles offense off the field.
Today’s win was very workmanlike after the slow start. The defense was never seriously threatened in a game that will be forever remembered as the one Brett Favre couldn’t start, ending his amazing streak at 297 games.
It’s probably a good thing Favre didn’t play, he likely would have been injured further.
I’m fired up for Sunday afternoon already. Should be a classic NFC East battle.
