If we're gonna win the game, it'll be through the air.
Their pass defense is sub-par.
Pass rush shouldn't be a problem with Jackson's mobility.

May I remind you that our Pass-D is dead last... and their QB is better than ours.

It's a sad day when Eli Manning is a better QB than any on the Vikings roster... but it's true.

Eli Manning is a better than most on every NFL roster.

And our passing offense is... 31st. I don't care what defense you're facing, with number one rushing attack in the league - you pound the rock, period.

LOL!
The have the 19th ranked pass Defense and we have the 31th pass Offense.
Seems to me 19 trumps 31.

If we are going to have a chance, we need to run.
They are ranked #7 but we are #1 in the running game.
#1 trumps #7 and we have seen what our run offense can do to a single digit ranked rush Defense.

Exactly! One only has to look at the matchups at the ends;

Strahan against Cook - Strahan will own Cook

Umenyiora against McKinnie - Umenyiora can get off the ball quickly, McKinnie can't. He will get beat by Umenyiora's quickness.

New York has sacks full of dangerous defensive ends (http://www.startribune.com/vikings/story/1569353.html)

The Giants put unbelievable pressure on opposing quarterbacks, thanks in part to a philosophy of stockpiling defensive ends.

While the Vikings have the more celebrated defensive tackles, the Giants' star power at defensive end is unsurpassed. In fact, their top three ends have more sacks (23) than the entire defenses on 16 NFL teams.....

That quote pretty much sums it up. 19th ranked or not, we are in no position to make this a passing game. We have to rely on the run, our defensive & perhaps special teams to have a chance to pull this one off.

Typically with the offense we are running you would like to llok at using some draws and screens early in order to slow down the rush along with some 2 tight end formations to slow down their ends and get a few passes to the tight end. It will be interesting to see what the coaches come up with
