MINNEAPOLIS – We’re live from U.S. Bank Stadium, where the Vikings host the Giants three weeks after narrowly defeating their fellow NFC contenders in a Christmas Eve nail-biter. Kirk Cousins and Co. were near perfect at home this year, with Minnesota’s 8-1 record coming into the matchup. But New York has proven to be one of the messiest teams in the conference, with an improved Daniel Jones leading his first career playoff run.
Both teams have thrived in tight situations under their freshman coaches, with Kevin O’Connell wisely keeping the ball near Justin Jefferson, and Brian Daboll’s physicality seeping into the Giants’ possession offense. And Sunday’s rematch has been predictably close so far, with New York leading 17-14 going into halftime. Jones was sharp, but also hit the ground, while Cousins leaned on TJ Hockenson to guide a few touchdown drives.
