Minnesota Vikings schedule: full game-by-game preview
By Dan Zinski
Week 4 vs New York Giants (Monday Oct. 3, 7:30 PM CT, ESPN)
Last year the Vikings absolutely crushed the New York Giants 49-17. The Giants will be out for revenge when they visit U.S. Bank Stadium for the first time in week 4.
Eli Manning was absolutely awful when the two teams played last year and frankly has been awful most of the times the Vikings have faced him. Eli will be looking to add to his staggering total of 14 career interceptions against the Vikes, three of those coming in last year’s game.
The Giants will be an interesting team this year after all the changes they made in the offseason, including firing long-time coach Tom Coughlin and spending approximately a bazillion dollars in free agency. And it will be fun to see Odell Beckham Jr. on the field, since we didn’t get to see him last year after he acted like a complete idiot against Carolina and got himself suspended.
This is one of those games that’s almost impossible to predict from such a long distance. The Giants figure to be a very different team in 2016 than they were last year, and who knows if they will be better or worse.
