Monday Night Football
This week I theorized that the Vikings defense was so bad that out of the 5 QBs they've faced, 3 of them would have had their best game of the season against the Vikings. Here are the results:
Matt Stafford: Had his second best game of the season.
Jay Cutler: Had his second best game of the season.
Brian Hoyer: Had his worst game of the season. Three INTs. But also 3 TDs. And the Browns won.
Ben Roethlisberger: Had his second best game of the season.
Cam Newton: Had his best game of the season.
So, while I was wrong about the actual performance, I think my point is proven: Quarterbacks do very well against the Vikings.
Which leads me to Monday night. I'm looking for Eli Manning to have a big night, his best of a very bad season to be sure, but his best so far and maybe his high water mark of the year.
I expect the Giants to win their first game. I just can't make it a best bet.
