You wouldn’t think of a game between teams with a combined 1-10 record as being worthy of prime time attention, but this Monday night’s matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants should be filled with enough desperation to make for a surprisingly good show.
Just two seasons removed from a Super Bowl Cheap Baseball Jerseys victory, the Giants find themselves in a shocking 0-6 hole, their worst start since 1976. The Vikings, a playoff team a year ago, have regressed under unsteady quarterback play and poor defense, and find themselves at 1-4. With pride — and jobs — on the line, this one could get fierce in the Meadowlands.
San Diego has a passing game, and showed Sunday that it has a running game now, too. Ryan Mathews broke out for the first time in 2013, rushing for 110 yards and a touchdown. Yards haven’t been an issue for Mathews in the past, but he’s traditionally been an inefficient runner. Against Jacksonville he showed an ability to find the gaps, averaging 5.2 yards per carry. Philip Rivers Cheap China Jerseys was asked to be little a game manager, and it was a role that suited him well.
There’s not much more we can pull from another Jaguars’ loss other than paying attention to what they can build on for the future. The team’s offensive line was a serious issue on Sunday, allowing Chad Henne to be sacked six times. Head coach Gus Bradley needs to pay close attention to this problem moving forward, especially if Jacksonville selects their quarterback of the future in the 2014 draft. Left tackle Luke Joeckel goes part of the way to solving this problem, but the issues are deeper, particularly at guard.
