New York can beat the Vikings Sunday, as throughout the season shows they are frauds. The Vikings enter the playoffs with a negative 3 in seasonal point differential. Along with almost losing to the Giants got blown out by Dallas and Green Bay in the season. Minnesota has also shown a terrible defense this season, ranked 31st in the league. The Giants can take advantage of these flaws from the Vikings in their Sunday showdown. New York, while exhausting to watch this season, can make plays on offense and hopefully win. With Daniel Jones managing the game, the Giants can win it.
The New York Giants Advantages
The New York Giants, while not great at passing the ball, can run it with Saquon Barkley to win. Saquon Barkley can take advantage of the defense the Vikings have to break out. The Minnesota Vikings terrible defense can give the Giants a chance to win on wild card weekend this upcoming Sunday.
For the Giants to win throughout the playoffs, they will need some playoff magic for this run. The Giants this year, with low expectations, have surpassed them to a winning record and a playoff spot. New York in this comeback season with Brian Daboll giving his team confidence is impressive. A chance to win a playoff game against a weak Vikings team can show the Giants fans hope this year. The Giants this year have also shown a revival in Saquon Barkley having a comeback season. Along with Barkley being good, Daniel Jones has flaws and can be a serviceable quarterback for the Giants. Giants fans, including myself, have seen the highs and lows and hope for another magical run.
The Giants Exposing Kirk Cousins?
The Giants could have some playoff magic to overcome an overrated QB in Kirk Cousins in Minnesota. New York has seen Kirk Cousins during his time in Washington and has somehow gotten an 84-million-dollar contract. Cousins, while he has his moments in the playoffs, also shows when the lights are bright, he’s not great. For the Giants to win is to limit Cousins’ ability to throw it to Justin Jefferson. If the Giants can shut down Jefferson and keep the game close, they can win this game. Along with shutting down the passing game, the Giants have an underrated defensive front with Dexter Lawrence leading them. Along with Lawrence is edge rushers Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari to pressure Cousins.
The New York Giants Magical Run?
The New York Giants will need magic to have a deep playoff run this year. For New York Giants fans, this year. this team has been unreal, and hopeful for more magic. This Giants team can beat the Vikings, and they were close until a field goal. Along with a good defense, the Giants will need playoff magic that won them a super bowl in 2008. New York will also need a breakout game from the offense to win. The Giants defense will need to get to Kirk Cousins’s to show the world that he’s overrated, especially in the playoffs. For the Giants to win, they will need everything to go right and big blue magic to help them succeed.
