NY Giants (2-1) at Minnesota (3-0)

7:30 p.m. Monday, ESPN

Line: Vikings by 5

No one has endured quite as much turmoil as the Vikings through three weeks. The Vikes have lost their star quarterback, running back and left tackle for the season, but have kept on trucking on their way to a 3-0 record. Eli Manning and the Giants come in with a vastly improved 11th-ranked defense which is sure to be an advantage over the Vikes’ 31st-ranked offense. After an impressive 2-0 start, the Giants are now at the risk of falling behind in a tight NFC East race.
