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.

Are Vikings The Antidote For Winless Giants?

The executives at ESPN cannot be happy that their Monday Night prime time tilt matches two teams with a combined one win. The Minnesota Vikings topped the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-27 in London two weeks ago, but reverted back to old ways in a 35-10 rout at the hands of the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. 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.

Giants Drop 6th Straight Game, Fall 27-21 To Bears

It’s a recurring theme for the Giants, as a crucial turnover in the fourth quarter doomed New York. Eli Manning overthrew Brandon Myers, and Tim Jennings intercepted the errant pass to preserve the Bears 27-21 victory over New York. The Giants are 0-6 for only the second time in team history.

Wilson Is Out, Jacobs To Start As Giants Face Off Against Bears

Injuries have been mounting for the 0-5 New York Giants; it seems that each game a different starter goes down with a serious injury. This week starting running back David Wilson has been ruled out with a neck injury. For the Bears, starting cornerback Charles Tillman may miss Thursday’s game with a knee injury, and linebacker Lance Briggs is nursing injuries to his foot and hip. Both Tillman and Briggs will be game-time decisions for the Bears.

Giants Seek Respectability Against Bears In Thursday Night Contest

The executives at NFL Network probably had this game circled during the summer. Two longtime NFL franchises, each with a storied past; fighting for position in the NFC playoff picture. Instead Thursday Night’s contest pits a winless New York Giants squad (0-5) against a reeling Chicago Bears team coming off two consecutive losses after starting the season 3-0.

Eagles Relatively Healthy, Giants Injury Report Grows Heading Into Sunday’s Contest

The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are each desperate for a victory on Sunday, so any advantage can prove helpful. With that in mind, this week’s injury report hands a decided advantage to the Eagles, which shows only two players on it. Meanwhile, the New York Giants had eight players who did not practice, in addition to the pending trade of Jon Beason to work with heading into week five.

Giants, Eagles Both Desperate For A Win

The only thing that separates the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is Philly’s surprise win over the Washington Redskins on opening day. While the G-men have dropped four straight to open the 2013 NFL campaign, the Eagles have dropped three in a row, including a 54-20 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week. Both teams are focused on playing 60 minutes of football in Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s first tilt in the Meadowlands.

Kansas City Chiefs Rout Hapless New York Giants 31-7

The New York Giants came into Sunday’s away contest against the Kansas City Chief winless at 0-3 and just off the worst loss in head coach Tom Coughlin’s tenure at the helm. Last week’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers continued a downward spiral that has seen poor pass protection, turnovers and lack of a running game. Meanwhile, through three games the Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL with a (+13) turnover margin. KC linebacker Justin Houston lead the NFL with 7.5 sacks, so the matchups were potentially disastrous for New York. The Giants hung around early but turnovers and special teams ineffectiveness doomed New York as the Chiefs pulled away late for a 31-7 victory.
