Sunday’s Matchup Against the Giants could be an Indicator of the Vikings Playoff Chances

If the regular season ended today, the Vikings and Giants would both find themselves in the playoffs. The Vikings host the Giants Sunday at noon in a playoff-caliber matchup. This game could be a good indicator of what to expect for the Vikings come January.

After clinching the NFC North in Week 15, the Vikings look to carry their momentum against the 8-5-1 Giants. The Week 15 win has now guaranteed the Vikings at least 1 home playoff game that will most likely be against a wild card team. Currently, the Giants sit at the 6-seed and could eventually play the Vikings in the playoffs.

This game will have similar variables to what we will see in January with 2 playoff teams facing off at US Bank Stadium. This season, the Vikings have faced 3 out of the 4 high-powered NFC East teams winning only 1 of these 3 games—the 2 games they lost were blowouts against both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. Facing the 4th and final team will be a test for the Vikings to see if they can go .500 against the well-rounded division.

Despite national media accusing the team of being “frauds”, The Vikings look to prove they are a legit playoff contender with a win on Sunday against Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, and the respectable New York Giants.

Sunday will be a good indicator if Vikings fans should get their hopes up and go all-in, or get ready to have their heart broken come playoff time.
