Giants-Vikings Predictions by Post Analyst: Not Consensus
Here are Post analysts’ predictions for Sunday’s Giants-Vikings NFC wild-card showdown in Minneapolis:
Ryan Dunleavy: Giants 26, Vikings 23
Revenge is best served cold, and it’s about 35 degrees outside the domed US Bank Stadium. After Greg Joseph’s 61-yard field goal tied the game on Christmas Eve, Graham Gano (8 for 9 over 50 yards this season) would take his turn for the game-winner at the end of the split.
Ian O’Connor: Giants 27, Vikings 23
The Giants drew in Minnie a few weeks ago, so the Vikings are a perfect first-round opponent. Inexperienced players may be afraid of the early playoffs, but I think the Giants will rally in time to pull off an upset.
Paul Schwartz: Giants 24, Vikings 20
Is there any doubt that the Giants are a team on the rise? Kirk Cousins hasn’t been bad in previous playoff games, but he’s 1-3. Daniel Jones makes his playoff debut with a resurgence. The Giants will follow suit.
Steve Serby: Giants 27, Vikings 24
Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, the twin personalities of the franchise, are on the cusp of a long-awaited playoff run, and a healthy, hungry defensive front and coordinator Wink Martindale won’t let Kirk Cousins play. Time with Justin Jefferson.
Mike Vaccaro: Vikings 28, Giants 24
What we’ve seen of the Giants all year is no illusion, but neither are the Vikings: They know how to win close games, and they’re at home. Back at MetLife, the numbers are reversed.
