This game is an embarrassment to Monday Night Football. Remember when we used to have the traditional Monday night game between two NFL powers? That’s now the Sunday night game. Monday night is reserved for the powerhouse team against the garbage team in its division, with ESPN hoping they can get eyeballs on the game for ratings.
But nothing can make this game easy on the eyeballs. Minnesota, led by Josh Freeman who is starting his very first game as a Vikings player, can’t do anything. Eli Manning, on the other hand, looks even worse than a rookie. On the last Giants series, early in the 3rd quarter, Manning threw a ball under pressure that looked like a Pix 6.
The Giants just scored on a 2-play, 4-yard drive after a Vikings turnover on a fumbled punt. It’s now 17-7, Giants. The Vikings return the kickoff 70 yards. Their drive will stall. Josh Freeman looks terrible. I’m going to bed. This game sucks.
