Week 16 – vs. New York Giants

While the Giants weren’t all that great a season ago, they could surprise some people this season. Eli Manning has proven that with weapons he can be a pretty good quarterback. This season, if everyone stays healthy, he’ll have Odell Beckham Jr., Reuben Randle, and Victor Cruz at wide receiver. However, Manning has, for whatever reason, generally had trouble against the Vikings defense and tends to take a lot of hits in games against Minnesota. If the Vikings can do this again in this game, it should translate into success.

Defensively, the Giants should be relatively mediocre in all areas, although they can generate a pass rush. We’ve seen numerous times that Bridgewater has the ability to handle pressure well, and he should be able to lead the offense to enough points in this game.

Prediction: Vikings 27-14 (8-7)
