New York Giants 7, Minnesota Vikings 3 - Jacobs Crushes Vikings Defense

The Vikings got a second interception from Eli Manning, but couldn’t do anything with it and had to punt from the Giants’ 37 rather than go for it on fourth and three.

It looked like a good strategic decision at first. . .until the Vikings’ defense allowed Giants’ running back Brandon Jacobs to blast around the left side of the line and pick up 73 yards to put the Giants into the Minnesota red zone.

After a couple of plays, including a run by Ahmad Bradshaw that was unsuccessfully challenged by Giants’ coach Tom Coughlin, Jacobs went in from inside the 1-yard line to give New York its first lead of the evening.

With 8:11 left in the first half of play from Detroit, the Vikings now trail the Giants by a score of 7-3.
