Danielle Hunter – DE
Danielle Hunter has been a beast this season and he needs to continue to dominate in order for the Vikings to get back into the win column.
Hunter has been a menace this season with 21 tackles and three sacks. He’s consistently been in opponents’ backfields and he has given every quarterback the Vikings have faced nightmares.
As we mentioned previously, the Giants will be rolling with a rookie quarterback this Sunday. Minnesota has to keep him under duress all game long. Mike Zimmer needs to roll out some exotic looks and hide coverages that will confuse the young signal-caller.
Not only that, but Hunter will need to be at his pass-rushing best and hit this youngster as many times as he can early in the game. If Hunter can lay him out once or twice early in the first quarter, Daniel Jones will get skittish.
He’ll begin feeling pressure that isn’t even there and he will look to get the ball out in a hurry. This will inevitably lead to some bad decisions that will turn into Vikings turnovers. This can sway the game in Minnesota’s favor to help them get the win on the road they so desperately need right now.
