Vikings Frustrate Beckham, Giants While Getting to 4-0

"That's all that matters".

Instead, the NY quarterback was held to only 25 completions on 45 attempts, with Minnesota defensive backs playing blanket coverage on the highly touted trio of receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Victor Cruz. "Obviously our defense has played fantastic all year and I think it was time for us to respond and give them a little break and allow them to catch their breath".

Manning finished with 261 yards and no touchdowns.

Manning said Beckham has to be aware that he is a focal point on the field for everyone.

Giants receiver Odell Beckham complained after getting a taunting penalty in Monday night's loss to the Vikings that no matter what he does, the officials will flag him. Orleans Darkwa's 1-yard touchdown run cut Minnesota's lead to 17-10 with 13:38 left. NY (2-2) finished with just 78 yards on the ground. "We're not handing out any medals tonight", Zimmer said. "That helps, but like I've said, we can't rely, we can't depend on our defense to carry us and bail us out".

Minnesota Vikings running back Matt Asiata (44) rushes for a first down as New York Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins (95) tackles him and gets assistance from linebacker Kelvin Sheppard (91) as guard Alex Boone (76) blocks in the second quarter at U.S. Bank Stadium. He had 18 carries, 85 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings last night.

Beckham is one of the NFL's best young players, but recently he's been getting more attention for screwing up than for playing well. "He was kind of tip-toeing, we'll have to fix that". Without explosive plays downfield, Minnesota protected and padded a lead with patience on offense. He played two offensive snaps against the Giants and two offensive snaps against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, but has yet to touch the football.

Maybe you just can't take talking about it, reading about or discussing the New York Giants' 24-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings any more.

Patterson first made his impact on special teams, but not as a returner.

The Vikings first score of the game came after a muffed punt return by Dwayne Harris. The thing is, the Vikings are throwing the ball down the field, and connecting.

[General manager Rick Spielman] has done a great job of bringing in here a lot of depth, a lot of high-character guys.

Certainly, the wide receiver has become a target. The plan was to insert veteran mop-up guy, Shawn Hill, but the Vikings craftily went after, and got oft injured cast-off QB, Sam Bradford. Bradford was 26 of 36 for 262 yards passing, thriving with quick-release throws behind an offensive line that protected better than it had in any of the previous three games. Moving to 4-0 is one thing, but doing it how the Vikings have on the defensive side of the ball is something totally different.

"I think they like to compete".

"We go hard every day in the run game, and Coach (Mike) Zimmer challenged us, and I think we stepped up this game and achieved those goals", said McKinnon, who also caught three passes for 10 yards.

"A good team on the road, especially this team, you can't give them two possessions", Giants coach Ben McAdoo said.
