KEYS TO VICTORY FOR VIKINGS
-Keep it simple for newly acquired QB Josh Freeman. Dont handcuff him though, allow him to use that big arm to stretch the field.
-Heavy dose of AP. He only had 10 carries last game vs Panthers. That can’t happen again. 20-25 carries is ideal.
-Get WR Cordarelle Patterson involved early. Quick passes and screen passes. Mix it up.
-Get off the field on 3rd down. Vikings are among the worst in that area in the NFL.
-Secondary must play disciplined. With a lot of injuries back there, everybody in the secondary will have to execute and play sound football.
KEYS TO VICTORY FOR GIANTS
-Eliminate turnovers. Giants lead NFL with 23 turnovers on offense. A majority of them coming from Eli Manning.
-Find some kind of running game. New York signed Peyton Hillis hoping he can get a spark going in the running game. Brandon Jacobs is inactive for tonight’s game.
-Stop Adrian Peterson.
-Continue to feed Victor Cruz. Minnesota has one of the worst secondarys in the NFL right now. Try and exploit that.
-Get pressure on Josh Freeman. He’s prone to make mistakes when facing pressure. Keep attacking.
