Total: 43 points
The Minnesota Vikings have been one of the surprises of the NFL to date, claiming a 3-0 record with some strong victories to date. They're the only team in the NFC North without a loss on the season and join the Philadelphia Eagles and Denver Broncos as the only teams in the entire league without a loss to date.
The Giants are 2-1 in the jam-packed NFC East, led by the Eagles. New York is coming off a crushing defeat to the Washington Redskins, a game they probably should have won. The Redskins out-scored New York by a touchdown in the second half and the Giants have to find a way to get past that game and be prepared for this one.
Eli Manning has been throwing for a ton of yards to date, he'll be looking to get the football to Odell Beckham Jr. as much as possible in this one. Beckham is averaging almost 15 yards per catch this season, but he hasn't found the end zone yet. That could change here.
Minnesota has an excellent defense and they do the thing necessary that helps them win football games. Sam Bradford hasn't put them in a poor position yet this season to lose a game, he can really take advantage against a Giants defense that isn't terrible, but one that doesn't have an interception to date.
The Vikes are doing just fine without their big names at quarterback and running back. They are well-coached and have talent enough on both sides of the football to win this one.
