You like that?! The Minnesota Vikings and their fans were so confident leading up to the NFC Wild Card Round, but the tables have turned for them. In incredible fashion, the NY Giants were able to record quite the upset on Sunday, taking down the Vikes at U.S. Bank Stadium 31-24, leaving countless people speechless.
Daniel Jones was a rockstar, throwing for 301 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 78 rushing yards. The win over Minnesota comes about three weeks after the Vikings took down the G-Men on Christmas Eve. Back then, Minnesota decided to troll the Giants and the other NY squads they had beaten. Now, the shoe is on the other foot, with the Giants hitting them back with an epic tweet after ending the NFC North side’s season:
NY Giants trolling the Vikings after upset win is a thing of beauty
That’s how you shut a team up. The Vikings thought they were so cool with that social media post, but people don’t forget. Props to the Giants social media team for not only digging up this old tweet, but firing up the perfect caption for it as well.
The showdown between the Giants and Vikings was once to remember, with the home team looking to tie things up late in regulation. Kirk Cousins had the ball, and people went into panic mode after an insane roughing the passer call went against All-Pro defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence.
It felt like it was written in the stars that Cousins would lead Minnesota on a scoring drive. The Giants defense, led by Lawrence, was able to come up with one last stop to secure the win. After the final whistle, the NY players and coaches rushed onto the field to celebrate their monstrous victory.
Meanwhile for the Vikings, a lot of people in the organization are left down in the dumps: the list includes their social media team. That’s right, they’ve got nothing to say now.
