Giants Fall in Minnesota
The Minnesota Vikings defense held the Giants offense in check and dominated the game with a 24-10 win on Monday Night.
Once again the Giants failed to hold on to the ball with a fumble on a punt return and an Eli Manning interception, stalling two drives that could have resulted in scores, instead it gave the Vikings the points.
The Giants were without starting RB Rashad Jennings and RT Marshall Newhouse, and back up RB Shane Vereen, they also have several injuries in their defensive secondary with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Eli Apple, Nat Berhe, and Darian Thompson.
Larry Donnell left the game early with a concussion.
I think Giants fans felt this one, but in all fairness this team is not running on all gears, I'm not sure if it's a coaching problem, but certainly the injuries have hurt this team.
The Giants spent millions on their secondary defensive back field and most of those guys are out, and you have rookies filling in the gap.
Eli Manning has not been able to find his receivers till late in the game, and they still seem out of sync.
I don't want to throw in the towel this early in the season, but the schedule doesn't get any better with the Packers, Ravens, and Rams respectively.
The loss is Big Blues second consecutive and puts them at 2-2 and spiraling towards the bottom of the NFC East, with Philadelphia 3-0, and Dallas (2-2) and the Redskins (2-2) on winning streaks.
The Giants have a short week as they head to Lambeau Field, to take on Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers in a Sunday night matchup.
