Giants Depth At Running Back To Be Tested As Team Hosts Vikings on MNF

The New York Giants (0-6) quest for their first victory of the regular season continues on Monday night, as the team plays host to the Minnesota Vikings (1-4) at the Meadowlands. New York has had a solid ten days off after their 27-21 defeat to the hands of the Chicago Bears, but the time off may not have helped their injury situation. The Vikings got run out of their own building on Sunday, losing 35-10 to the Carolina Panthers, and have designated recently signed quarterback Josh Freeman as their starter against the G-men.

The New York Giants lost their sixth straight contest by falling to the Chicago Bears, 27-21, on Thursday night, dropping Big Blue to 0-6 on the season.
