The New York Giants are preparing for a playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings on the road.
In Brian Daboll’s first year as head coach, the Giants have played well, and Daniel Jones has started to show that he could be a long-term starter in the NFL.
Running back Saquon Barkley bounced back and put together another 1,000-yard campaign, and there is a ton of hope in New York.
With playoff week here, the Giants got a strong show of support from franchise legend and Super Bowl-winning QB Eli Manning.

The Giants will need all the help they can get against one of the best teams in the NFC.
Fortunately, the Vikings and Giants just played each other a few weeks ago, with Minnesota getting the Christmas Eve victory over New York by a field goal.
The Giants tied the game up late in the fourth quarter after a Barkley rushing score, but Greg Joseph kicked a game-winning 61-yard field goal to give the Vikings the win.
The Vikings are currently three-point favorites for this playoff game, and there are some concerns with the lack of playoff experience on New York’s roster, although Brian Daboll didn’t seem concerned one bit about that.
Eli Manning does know abut defying the odds, and his Giants team defeated the undefeated New England Patriots in the Super Bowl thanks to the infamous David Tyree catch.
Who knows, maybe history repeats itself and this year’s Giants team makes another deep run.
