Minnesota Vikings vs New York Giants 10/06/2019
The Vikings were last trounced by the Chicago Bears with a stinging 16-6 scoreboard. The heroics of the players must still be noted, however, as the team is in an avenging mode and eager to make up for that loss. Dalvin Cook led the rushing department with 14 carries at 35 yards, earning him 1 touchdown in the process. Stefon Diggs led the receivers’ yardage by doing 7 receptions for a total of 108 yards, or an average of 15.4 yards for each reception. Kirk Cousins pumped out 27/36 with 233 passing yards but didn’t connect any touchdown in that way. The Vikings went on the rush 16 times for a total of 40 yards. Overall, they implemented 58 plays which allowed them to gain 222 yards. While they were able to score 15 first-downs, they were held back by 7 penalties, which forced them to give up 55 yards. Minnesota Vikings’ defense was weak on air yards, allowing the opponent 24 out of 33 catch attempts at 197 yards, with a completion rate of 73%. The Vikings gave up 269 yards in total.
The Vikings are hard-pressed to find ways to put in more offense. While they’re able to cover a respectable number of yards, they need to convert these into touchdowns, as they have not-so-good stats as compared to the rest of the NFL.

New York Giants
The Giants had just completed their domination of the Washington Redskins with a final scorecard of 24-3. Wayne Gallman showed who’s boss on the Giants’ rushing department with 18 carries covering a total of 63 yards, culminating in 1 touchdown.

While the Giants have decent stats in the NFL, they can push themselves to do better, especially in air yards and pass touchdowns. The Giants already have a formidable running game and it will take a lot for an opposing team to stop their rush. If they’re able to make things work on passing and throws, they’ll have a winning mix that will help them improve their standing.
