Giants vs Vikings: GMEN HQ Staff Predictions

It feels like the Giants have been stuck at 0-6 for a very long time, as the GMEN have not played a game since last Thursday. Tomorrow night, the Giants finally play again and will have a prime opportunity to finally get a win this season, against the woeful Minnesota Vikings. With a game finally on the horizon, that also means GMEN HQ Staff predictions time!

First, here is a look at the answers to last week’s questions:

1. Over/Under 60 yards rushing for the Giants? Over (123 yards)
2. Over/under 4 receptions + a TD for the Black Unicorn? Under (6 catches, but no touchdown)
3. Will Eli Manning be able to get through an entire game without throwing an interception against the ball-hawking Chicago defense? Nope, he could not even last one freaking minute, sigh.
4. Who will lead the Giants in receptions? Victor Cruz & Hakeem Nicks (4)
5. Will the Giants defense have more than two sacks? No (they had none which is embarrassing)
6. Do the Giants have any chance at going into Chicago and getting their first victory on a short week? (Final Score) They had a chance, but blew it with their continued sloppy play and turnovers (Bears 27, Giants 21)
Bonus Question: Will the black unicorn steal Paul Dottino’s potato chips again (for those who watch the Giants post game)? Not to my knowledge.

Here is the leaderboard through six very, very long weeks:

1 T Kaz – 15 + 5 = 20
3 (T) Me – 12 + 4 = 16
3 (T) Ricky – 14 + 2 = 16
4 Cousin Matt – 8 + 4 = 12
6 (T) Josh – 11
6 (T) JT – 9 + 2 = 11
7 Tom – 6 + 2 = 8
8 Adam – 6 + 1 = 7
9 James F – 6

T Kaz celebrated his first week in first place with a very strong follow-up performance, as he starts to pull ahead of the rest of the field. I took another strong week to jump into a tie behind T Kaz. Commenter, Cousin Matt, surged up to fourth with a very good week.

Now, for this week’s questions:
1. Will the Giants hold Adrian Peterson to under 100 yards?
2. Over/Under 5 carries for newly signed Peyton Hillis?
3. Who will have more interceptions Eli Manning or Josh Freeman?
4. Who will lead the Giants in tackles?
5. Who will lead the Giants in sacks?
6. Will the Giants finally get off the snide or will they lose their seventh straight game to start the season (include final score)?
Bonus Question: Will Eli have a pick 6?
