Fans were given free admission to the Vikings-Giants game in Detroit…and those tickets may have been overpriced. The first half between these two teams was just a brutal display of football. Eli Manning threw two picks early, but the Vikings could not capitialize. The Giants then got things under control and began showing that they are clearly the better team. Brandon Jacobs keyed the first Giants scoring drive with a 73-yard run. The Giants got their second TD of the second quarter when Eli Manning completed an efficient drive by hitting Kevin Boss for a 6-yard score. Tarvaris Jackson‘s so-so first half in place of the injured Brett Favre would’ve mattered less had the Vikings gotten any run game going at all, but unfortunately, Adrian Peterson was held to 16 yards on 10 carries, his worst two quarters of football in many a moon. The Vikings’ defense looks listless, the offense looks uninspired…and right now it looks like the Vikings are on their way to their 8th loss of the season. Unless the Vikings get things fired up in the second half, this will go down as a total surrender game for the Purple.
