Minnesota has been the most shocking team in the NFL as they look to make it a 4-0 start when they welcome in the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
The Giants suffered their first loss of the season as they stumbled at home last week to Washington.
New York Giants
The Giants started the season off with back to back late victories as they took down Dallas and New Orleans.
However, things didn’t go according to plan last week as a red zone turnover late in the game sealed their fate against the Redskins.
The Giants continue to put up big numbers offensively in terms of yardage per game, but scoring has been the biggest issue.
New York has averaged 397 yards per game (6th in the NFL) and 297.7 through the air (5th in the NFL), but finishing drives has been the issue for QB Eli Manning.
Manning has led the Giants to just 21 points per game through the first 3 week as he has just 4 touchdowns to 3 interceptions.
Running wise, things have to get figured out RB Shane Vereen was placed on the IR leaving an already thin running back corp thinner. They’ll turn to Orleans Darkwa, who rushed for 53 yards last week.
Minnesota has been the hardest team to figure out.
Prior to the season, QB Teddy Bridgewater injured himself in a non contact play and then in Week 2, RB Adrian Peterson went down and required surgery.
Injuries have really hurt this team on paper, but not on the field. Minnesota went out and got QB Sam Bradford, who has led the Vikings to a 3-0 start after their upset win on the road against the defending NFC Champions.
Wins over Carolina and Green Bay have headlined their start, as the Vikings defense has been one of the best in the league.
Minnesota is allowing just 13.3 points per game and 295 yards against per game.
Minnesota ranks in the top 10 in almost every defensive category as they continue to help the offense with short fields and allow them to keep the momentum.
Look for the Vikings to try and put a lot of pressure on Eli Manning here as they know the Giants have a lot of issues with the running game.
Flustering him and forcing him into some tough passes will be a key here.
