Vikings At Giants Final Score: Minnesota Flops In 23-7 Loss

Al Bello

In Week 6, the Minnesota Vikings had an ugly loss against the Carolina Panthers at home, dropping the game 35-10. If you thought it couldn't get uglier. . .well, sorry about that.

Much like Spinal Tap, the Vikings chose to turn the ugly up to 11 on Monday Night at MetLife Stadium, allowing the New York Giants to get a 23-7 victory in a contest that, honestly, wasn't nearly as close as the final score might indicate.

The Vikings' lone score on the evening came courtesy of Marcus Sherels and an 86-yard punt return in the first quarter, the third-longest punt return for a score in Vikings' history. The Vikings managed no offensive points against a defense that had been allowing 34.8 points per contest coming in.

With the Vikings starting Josh Freeman, a quarterback that they had only signed a couple of weeks ago, the team inexplicably put together a game plan that involved only thirteen carries (and 28 yards) for Adrian Peterson, and a whopping fifty-three pass attempts from Freeman. Freeman only completed 20 of those attempts for 190 yards and an interception.

There's a lot to discuss about this game, and we'll have it going forward. But for now. . .it was just a whole lot of ugly at MetLife stadium this evening. The Vikings fall to 1-5 and have a Sunday night match-up with the Green Bay Packers coming in Week 8.
