Giants/Vikings Playoffs Notes

January 11, 2023

The “3” seed Minnesota Vikings are 3 point favorites at home vs the “6” seed New York Giants, in what surprisingly is the coveted time slot, late Sunday game.

These teams are meeting in the ‘offs for the fourth time.

It will be the third time they clash in the wild card round. In a ’93 season “such” the Giants led by Rodney Hampton prevailed.

That was not the case as the Vikings pulled out a miracle win in a Saturday wild card round game in the ’97 season ‘offs.

In by far their most important clash, the Giants took the NFC title tilt at home vs the Vikings on Sunday January 14, 2001 to becme 2000 season NFC champions. The Ravens, a touchdown underdog at Cincinnati vs the Bengals in the AFC “3” vs “6” wild card round tilt that will follow Giants at Minne, defeated the Giants in the subsequent 2000 season Supe to win that year’s NFL crown.

This will be the first time that the Vikings will be the home team in an ‘offs clash vs the Giants.

Rodney Hampton, who played for Georgia and hail their repeat title once again, led the Giants wild card round win vs Minne in ’93, that somehow yielded Giants and under when it required, I believe the Vikings being held scoreless in the second half.

The all time, “value” team Giants from ’64 even to the present day, (not before when they were (3-11) playing for the crown, are (4-1) in Super Bowl competition.

Hampton was in (not INN, I apologize for that one) the winning ’90 season Supe win, the one of 4 Supe losses, in which the current “2” AFC seed, Bills were competitive.
