How the Giants, Vikings made it to Wild Card weekend
Football is back for Giants fans. Head coach Brian Daboll had a great first year with the Giants. The team looks as good. as they have been since drafting Daniel Jones. And Daboll helped Jones turn his game around. They won a number of tough battles which is a big reason they got into the playoffs. Another big reason they got in was their early season success. They started off 7-1, and went 3-5-1 in the remaining games. They dealt with a number of injuries all season as well.
The Vikings had a great year, but it’s hard to tell if they serious going to be able to compete in the playoffs. They have the best wide receiver in the NFL, but Kirk Cousins has been too inconsistent. If they want to win a few games in the playoffs, they will need to get Jefferson the ball a ton and the defense needs to step up. Their defense has been bend don't break for the most part. They have struggled giving up a ton of yards, but have forced some lunch turnovers.
