Vikings shredding the Giants

With the Vikings needing a win and some silver-and-blue help in order to secure the second seed in the NFC playoff field, the first part of that equation is being addressed.

Convincingly.

Minnesota leads the Giants in the second quarter, 24-0.

Taking into account last weekend’s 41-9 loss to the Panthers, the Giants have been outscored by 56 points in less than six quarters, 65-9.

Meanwhile, the Vikings have exploded for 54 points since halftime of Monday night’s loss to the Bears.  Quarterback Brett Favre has thrown for more than 500 yards during that time frame, too.

If the Dallas Cowboys beat the Eagles in a game that begins at 4:15 p.m. ET (and if the Vikings don’t undergo a historic collapse), Minnesota secure a first-round bye — and the Vikings will be guaranteed at least one home game in the postseason.

UPDATE:  At halftime, it’s 31-0.

  1. after last week the giants had no reason to show up this week. better off losing and getting a higher draft pick at this point

  2. Vikings will be guaranteed at least one home game in the postseaon but cannot guarantee that they can sell out that game.
    At half time, maybe the should pipe in the Randy Newman song, “I Love LA” as a reminder of what’s in store for the franchise.

  3. The GIANTS look like a practice squad….mmmm intersting funny how that happens Antonio Pierce i wonder if the vikings think this is a scrimmage….

  4. Wow. The Giants are just laying down. I really thought they’d go down swinging after that disgrace last week. I doubt that the Defense’s shortcomings have escaped the notice of Coughlin. I’ll be surprised if Sheridan isn’t gone by tomorrow.

  5. I don’t understand why no one has taken the Jets to task for releasing Brett Favre after last season. They had him under contract for a second year. Sanchez could have sat for a year and watched and learned instead of being thrown to the lions as a rookie.
    Instead, the Jets released Brett, got nothing for him, and he is having an MVP season.
    To me, it’s another bad decision by the Jets.
    Gang-green in action.

  6. You’ld think that the Giants have a first round bye the way they have laid down.
    Or, and i’m just spitballing here, they know by letting Minny win they screw Dallas out of a chance for the bye.

  7. Where’s the daily schism chatter from the bitter Packer fans? The only bad thing about this likely win is that it virtually guarantees that Green Bay won’t make a 2nd trek to the dome for another shellacking, seeing as how the Pack would have to win on the road at least once, but probably twice in order to go to Minny.

  8. I’m hoping they are laying down to punch sheridans ticket out of town. Either way, this team needs some major changes on defense. Spags dealt with his share of injuries and always had the same core group of guys playing at a high level.
    This team is an embarrassment, reminds me of the saints game… i think i could throw for 300 yards against this defense.
    I hope the vikes keep running up the score, force mgmt to make some fast decisions. To think I paid $300 for sunday ticket to watch this garbage.

    It make sense for pack fans to want the Vikings to move because the only chance the pack has of ever winning the division again will be if the Vikings are out of the division.

  10. Man……The G-Hens defense is pathetic……Truly pathetic…Is this all the DC’s fault when they are lying down like dogs?…..Does the DC need to teach them how to tackle?

  11. The Vikings would be hosting a Wild Card Weekend game anyway since they won the division, right?

  12. While watching this game I’m starting to question whether or not Tom Coughlin should lose his job. Jeez this team stinks!

    Can you PLEASE come up with something original???? You spew the same bull$hit on every Viking post.

  14. Love it! Love it! Love it!
    Atleast they’re bending over and taking it like men. haha how these clowns swept Dallas is beyond me.

  15. Jimmy you hit the nail on the head with the sell out problem. The Boy’s will smoke them, next weekend.

  16. Jimmy Smith is a clueless tool. I’m willing to bet that a high percentage of Packer Fans do not want the Vikings to leave Minnesota.

    Tell that to the guy who’s shelling out for season tickets…

  18. “the pack has of ever winning the division again will be if the Vikings are out of the division.”
    Yeah like the Packers have never been able to beat the Vikings for the division title before…
    Dude quit acting like the Vikings have dominated the division. Before last season, they haven’t won the title in 7 seasons.

  19. G-Hens fans should lead the league in embarrassment……After the last 2 weeks….Again…how much money did you pay Chris Canty?……..A cowgirl choke artist…..You acted like he was Reggie White…..Hell ,did he even play?…..Enjoy the couch Jackasses…..

  20. The Vikings are guaranteed a home playoff game no matter what Florio. If the Eagles win today, then Dallas has to travel to Minnesota to play a Vikings team that is riding high with momentum and that is a perfect 8-0 at home this year. Tough task to ask any team to go head on against. So while a bye is not locked, a home playoff game certainly is.

    It’s unbelievable this is even the same team that just lost to Chicago.”
    Don’t let the final score fool you. The Panther loss was a disgrace. The Bear game was a tale of two halves. And in that 2nd half (which spilled into this week), the Vikings racked up 30 points in less than 2 quarters, and the D held the Bears to 14. The only reason they lost was because they were already down 23 pts going into halftime.
    the Vikings are most defintiely back, as strong as they ever were, now that their “slump” is over.
    The Saints still haven’t fixed their issues, which won’t bode well for them in 2 weeks, when the Eagles or Packers come to town.

    Gerbil in your ass….why do you even post anymore?
    I’m willing to wager the Vikes don’t get beat next week-end.
