MINNEAPOLIS — We’re live from US Bank Stadium as the Vikings host the Giants three weeks after defeating their fellow NFC rivals in a nail-biter on Christmas Eve. Kirk Cousins and Co. They’ve been nearly perfect at home this year, coming into the tournament with an 8-1 record in Minnesota. But New York has proven to be one of the worst teams in the conference, guided by an improved Daniel Jones to his first career playoff run.
Kevin O’Connell smartly kept the ball close to Justin Jefferson, and with Brian Daboll’s physicality in the Giants’ ball-control attack, both teams thrived in tight situations under their first-year coaches. Sunday’s rematch was the closest so far, with New York boasting a 17-14 lead going into halftime. Jones was sharp and busy on the ground, while Cousins leaned on TJ Hockenson to lead a pair of touchdown drives.
A half-decade removed from the “Minneapolis Miracle,” which team is in the best position to continue its miraculous run? Either way, this is must-see TV. We’ve got you covered here, straight from the floor of the action, with live updates and analysis.
