The Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants meet on Monday Night Football, and what was seen as a big game before the season started is now looked at as a battle between two of the most disappointing teams in the NFL. According to ESPN on Oct. 21, the game will see starting Giants running back Brandon Jacobs out and newly signed Peyton Hillis as the likely starter. Here is how you can follow the Vikings vs. Giants live stream of the game Monday night.
- Date: Oct. 21
- Location: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
- Time: 8:30 p.m. EST
- TV: ESPN
- Live Stream: WatchESPN
Hillis will be the fourth New York Giants running back to get major playing time this season. Andre Brown broke his leg in the preseason, David Wilson suffered through some fumble problems before injuring his neck and Da’Rel Scott was released two weeks ago. That leaves Hillis and rookie Michael Cox.
The Minnesota Vikings have no problems at running back with Adrian Peterson in the game, but they are starting a brand new quarterback after signing Josh Freeman just a week after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their former starting quarterback. Christian Ponder, who started the season as the starter was moved to backup and Matt Cassel was demoted to third string.
The Giants have not won a game this season and the Vikings, a playoff team from 2012, have only won one game. The Vikings vs. Giants live stream kicks off at 8:30 p.m. EST.
