Featured Game | Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Giants
What you need to know about the VikingsIt may have taken overtime to finish the job, but the Vikings ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Saturday with a 39-36 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Minnesota was down 33-0 at the end of the half, but the squad rallied to mount a spectacular comeback. Their success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but RB Dalvin Cook led the charge as he caught four passes for one TD and 95 yards. The Vikings have already clinched the NFC North and still have a slim chance to end up with the top seed in the NFC playoffs. Minnesota’s success in the win/loss column has defied logic, however, as it is allowing 24.9 points per game, while scoring 25.1 points per game. The Vikings defense has had issues all year ranking dead last in the NFL in total yards allowed per game (399.2), and remains their Achilles heel heading into the postseason. What you need to know about the GiantsMeanwhile, New York bagged a 20-12 victory over the Washington Commanders on Sunday. New York can attribute much of its success to a strong defensive effort and a solid game from running back Saquon Barkley, who punched in one rushing touchdown. The Giants enter this matchup ranked third worst in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game (150.4), but the Vikings have a bottom five rushing attack averaging 95.4 yards per game on the ground. The reality of the situation here is that New York has more to play for in this game with a playoff spot on the line. New York currently holds the No. 6 seed in the NFC, and a win would go a long way in creating some separation in a tight race.How to make Vikings vs. Giants picksThe model has simulated Vikings vs. Giants 10,000 times and the results are in.
