New York Giants 21, Minnesota Vikings 3 - Elimination Is Upon Us

Well, the Vikings are about 18 minutes of game time away from being mathematically eliminated from the post-season.

After the Vikings’ offense stalled once again, the Giants took the ball and. . .well, they didn’t really have to do much. It took them only three plays and 60 seconds to move the ball 59 yards, largely because Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a 48-yard touchdown run on their third play.

A loss for the Vikings will mathematically eliminated them from playoff consideration.

The Vikings followed that with a kickoff return for a touchdown by the newly-acquired Lorenzo Booker. . .but it came back due to a block in the back penalty on linebacker Jasper Brinkley.

With under a minute left in the third quarter, the Vikings trail the Giants by a score of 21-3.
