Eli Manning Will Lead New York Giants Over Minnesota Vikings on Monday
Monday night will provide New York Giants fans an interruption from the misery that has plagued their beloved team throughout the 2013 season. The G-Men will take care of business against the Minnesota Vikings behind a vintage performance form Eli Manning.
Manning has been a prime contributor in the team’s failures over the course of the first six games. He’s thrown an eye-popping 15 interceptions, which is the same amount he threw all of last season.
However, Manning will look like the player of old on Monday night.
The Vikings rank 29th in passing defense, surrendering 308 yards per game. Despite Manning’s struggles, he has still thrown for over 1,700 yards through six games. It has been the mental lapses and poor decisions that have gotten Manning and the Giants into trouble.
Statistics aside, Manning is too good of a quarterback to continue a decline of this magnitude. In the past, Manning was the rock of the Giants’ team even when other aspects of the offense and defense were struggling.
It’s also time for the weapons New York has at wide receiver to shine as a unit. Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle have all shown flashes of brilliance at different points of the season, but they are yet to dominate a defense like people thought they would. Cruz and Nicks have No. 1 wide receiver-type talent, and Randle is a budding star in this league.
The Vikings are just 1-4 going into Monday night, and this matchup creates a perfect opportunity for the Giants to get back on track. It’s not fair to expect perfection from Manning, but he will turn in a much-improved performance en route to victory.
