After another Viking punt, the Giants took over at their own 29-yard line, and proceeded to run a two-minute offense just about as well as you can run it.
The big strike came on a 30-yard pass to Hakeem Nicks, who absolutely abused Asher Allen on the play, to get into Vikings’ territory. From there, after a couple of hiccups, Eli Manning found Kevin Boss, who made a nice grab in the end zone. . .like a boss. . .and put the Giants up 14-3.
Tarvaris Jackson has looked okay for the Vikings in the first half, having gone 10-for-13 for 77 yards, but the Vikings really haven’t generated very much in the way of offense thus far. If they want to keep their ever-so-slim playoff hopes alive, they need to remedy that in the second half.
We’re at halftime in Detroit, and our score is New York 14, Minnesota 3.
