Skol in the Meadowlands

In the Vikings-Giants game at Giants Stadium Sunday, one team blew out the other while scoring 41 points. But this time, the Vikings came out on top, it wasn't a shutout, and it wasn't the 2000 NFC Championship game.

The Vikes crushed the Giants 41-17, in a game that was shown in much of the country until the fourth quarter, when Fox cut away from the blowout to broadcast Tampa Bay-Washington.

Tarvaris Jackson actually looked semi-decent, throwing a long touchdown pass on the second play of the game, and the defense picked off Eli Manning four times, including three for touchdowns. The Eli Manning face made several appearances as Eli had probably his worst game as a pro. My fantasy league opponent started the Giants' defense (which scored -3 points), while benching the Vikings' (which scored 30.)

The Vikes now find themselves 5-6, with an easy remaining schedule, and have a decent shot at grabbing the sixth seed (as do the Eagles) if an 8-8 makes it in the NFC. I'm not deluded, but it still nice to see such a dominant victory.
