4 bold predictions for the NY Giants vs. Vikings postseason showdown
By Zak Musso
2. Daniel Jones throws for 3 TDs and 350 yards
The Vikings may have the NFL’s best group of weapons and the Giants may have the NFL’s worst. That didn’t seem to matter last time these two teams played as Daniel Jones completed 30 of his 42 passes for 334 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Richie James caught eight passes for 90 yards, Isaiah Hodgins caught eight passes for 89 yards and a touchdown, and Darius Slayton caught four balls for 79 yards. The Vikings secondary got absolutely shredded by three wide receivers who would likely be no higher than a WR4 on any other contending team.
It should be no surprise the Vikings secondary got picked apart. The Vikings defense ranks 31st in the NFL in pass defense, giving up 265.6 yards per game. Danny Dimes did throw an interception in the last matchup, but it was actually a positive sign, as he displayed a level of hyper-aggressiveness that he has been lacking this season.
Jones will continue to be aggressive and distribute the ball all over the field to his playmakers. Hodgins, James, Slayton, and Daniel Bellinger will all have highly productive games, and maybe we even get another Kenny Golladay sighting. After Jones 350-yard, three-TD performance Sunday afternoon, he will be the talk of the NFL world.
