Here's the best I've got: The New York football Giants are looking at making it SEVEN IN A ROW when they host the Minnesota Vikings who are desperately clinging to SOLE POSSESSION of their spot in the tough NFC North! Tonight on MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!!

Lets get real.. As Viking fans we know dam well that the cure for any QB's ill's is to play us! How many 3rd stringers have we made look like Joe Montana? Manning may be in the worst funk of his career, but he's still a Manning, and he holds two Super Bowl rings. And he didn't get them for holding a clipboard. Eli will throw two TD passes. Giants 24, Vikes 17

No Harrison Smith trolling the defensive secondary gives Eli Manning middle of the field options. Kalil might be sidelined, so an athletic Webb might give Freeman enough time to complete some simple pass routes. Peterson won't do much against the Giant defense unless the O-line steps it up. And, of course, we still have the Bill Musgrave offense to lend a hand to the Giants. Who knows? Maybe the Giants stumble again and we win a tight ballgame. It's a NY Tv market so broadcaster tilt will make this a bad watch for the Viking fans unless the Vikes get off to a positive start.

If you go with the theory that: "even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in a while".....we are toast.

1. If I were an advertiser I'd ask for a deep discount on my air time! Who's even gonna' watch this one? 2. Not expecting much from Freeman after 9 days with the club. How can you? 3. The expression "you can't keep a good man down" comes to mind when thinking about Manning ... who will likely put up career single game stats this evening- 5-6 TD passes and 4-5 football field lengths in completions. After Giants win this evening Manning will 'run the table' for the remainder of the football season.

You could also reverse the headline "Giants catch Vikings at a low point"

If Freeman can ignite the Vikings offense, and there's a chance, this could be a shootout. It's the Vikings defense that needs to step it up, and with the linebackers being the worst group in the NFL, this could be a track meet with both teams scoring 40+ points. Can we say "Tossup"?

The Cleveland Browns were supposed to be "just what the doctor ordered" for the Vikes. Carolina was supposed to be a cake-walk...Beware of the teams they're "supposed" to beat.

Manning and the Giants at a low point? Sounds like the perfect storm for a massive wave of passes to sink the Vikings ship. Maybe I'll watch Dancing With the Stars.

Trust me, Vikings fans. You guys are winning this game. Contrary to what this article would like you to believe, the Giants problem is not so simple as asking, "What's wrong with Eli?" This is so obviously not about Eli Manning. No one wants to admit it, but it is ALL about Coughlin and his coaching staff. This is an absolutely poorly coached team. Eli may be able to pull this one out, but his team will only bury him again. I'm starting to think his team actually wants Eli to fail. Lol. Seriously, though, he'll hrow amazing pass after amazing pass only to have someone find new creative ways to dump all over it. Vikings win tonight. The Giants are just too awful.
