Week 7 of the 2013 NFL schedule concludes tonight when the Minnesota Vikings take on the New York Giants from New Jersey. Both of these teams have underachieved tremendously so far in 2013, but a win for either team could change things around.
According to a Sportsline report on Oct. 21, the Vikings will start new QB Josh Freeman in hopes he can jump start their struggling offense.
The Vikings are hoping the former first-round pick can catch lightning in a bottle and help the Vikings get on track. Freeman is ready for the challenge.
"Any time you step into a situation where you're the new guy, there's always kind of an awkward getting-to-know-you phase,'' Freeman said. ''But I think that goes back to the character of this organization just from top to bottom - a lot of quality people that are dedicated to winning first and foremost. So it's been a smooth adjustment.''
For New York, it’s now or never. The 0-6 Giants, believe it or not could still have a shot at the NFC East title. I know, they haven’t won a game yet, but no team is running away and hiding yet in the East and a win would pull them within 3 games of the lead, with a lot of football left on the schedule.
Las Vegas odds makers have the Giants as 3 point favorite with the over/under number set at 48.
This is the week - for New York that is! The Giants finally get rid of the goose egg and get their first win.
