Giants vs Vikings: NFL Week 7 Monday Night Football Prediction
New York Giants: Big Blue still searching for first victory
Less than two seasons removed from their Super Bowl XLVI Championship, things are rotten in the Big Apple as Big Blue has gone 0-6 to open the 2013 NFL season. Most disturbing to Giants fans has to be the fact that the blame can be shared on both sides of the ball and across the board. On offense, QB Eli Manning is having a nightmare season as he has tossed 15 interceptions to just nine touchdowns and he has been sacked 16 times. New York is averaging a meager 67.8 rushing yards per game and their -16 turnover differential is the worst in the league. Defensively, the G-Men lead the league in points allowed at an average of 34.8 PPG and their 14 passing TD’s allowed is tied with Dallas and Jacksonville for the most in the NFL this season.
Minnesota Vikings: Having the best player on the planet is not enough
Like the Giants, it’s been a long season for the Minnesota Vikings as well. Less than a year removed from an improbable 10-6 season, and an NFL 2012 playoff appearance, the Vikings are 1-4 and three games out of first place in the NFC North. Minnesota has been bad on both sides of the ball as well and they will trot out their third different starting quarterback when Tampa Bay Buccaneers castoff Josh Freeman starts on Monday night. Whether the Vikings 35-10 home loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 6 is rock bottom remains to be seen. If the Giants can partially contain all-world running back Adrian Peterson, the offense can get healthy in a hurry against a leaky Vikings defense. Lay the -3 (-110) line at the Bovada sportsbook and back the Giants!
