1. The Giants take down the Vikings
With the season coming to a close, every game is an opportunity for this Giants team to get better. As noted previously, a win would almost guarantee them a playoff berth. They just so happen to be just the team to take down this Vikings unit.
The Vikings have been dominant this season, but they have still shown their weaknesses. Over the past two weeks, they have had to battle. In Week 14, they fell to the Detroit Lions 34-23. In the following week, they had to come back from being down 33 points to the Indianapolis Colts.
With Justin Jefferson leading this electric Vikings offense, the Giants defense will need to step up in a big way. Missing safety Xavier McKinney once again could prove to be a huge problem for this unit. But the explosive pass rush could be the key on defense.
If Thibodeaux, Ojulari, Lawrence, and Williams can consistently apply pressure, the Vikings offense could be stopped in their tracks. This Giants defensive front has quickly established themselves as one of the most elite in the NFL. If they can once again limit an opposing offense, this game could be the Giants to win.
On offense, Jones, Barkley, and the rest of the skill players will need to be prepared to put points on the board. If Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka can open up the playbook, this offense could put up big numbers. A win here could give the Giants their statement victory of the season. And it could come at just the right time.
