Minnesota played poorly against the Chicago Bears but has a strong defense that will keep the New York Giants and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones in check. The Vikings running game will take advantage of injuries to the Giants linebackers and Dalvin Cook will once again rush for over 100 yards making Kirk Cousins job under center all the easier as he looks for Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen down field. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota Vikings win and cover ATS 27-17
