Watch the game on TSN starting with Monday Night
#1
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The New York Giants have a pretty good hunch what to expect from Minnesota with newcomer Josh Freeman taking over at quarterback for the struggling Vikings. Adrian Peterson to the left. A.P. to the right. Peterson more often than not in the nationally televised game on Monday night between two of the leagues biggest flops this season. Watch the game on TSN starting with Monday Night Countdown at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt. The Giants (0-6) are reasonably sure Freeman isnt going to know the offence totally after just a couple of weeks with the Vikings (1-4). That leaves Peterson to carry the load off, and thats not a bad option with the halfback coming one of the best rushing seasons in league history. "I think hes a different guy," Giants defensive co-ordinator Perry Fewell said when asked to compare him to some of the better backs in the league. "I watched him in the off-season study and hes really good. I see guys hit him, tackle him, beat him up, punch him and he just keeps coming. Hes got an iron will, and hes just a strong runner, and hes got a great determination to make those yards, and so we all have to be on the same page. Well have to swarm tackle. Well have to gang tackle. Well have to see what we hit and hit what we see." Freeman is the bigger question mark for the Giants defence, which has given up a league-high 209 points. He was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this month after a miserable start and signed by Minnesota because starter Christian Ponder hurt his ribs. Ponder is expected to be the backup this week. Freeman started 59 games over four-plus seasons in Tampa with his best being in 2010 when he threw 25 touchdowns and six interceptions. He had four TDs and 12 interceptions in his last six games and his quarterback rating of 59.3 this season was last in the league when he was released. "From the moment he stepped in the building, he wanted to learn. And the way he handled himself in that practice, it changed my mindset about the possibilities," Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said. "We had a timeframe in mind originally, but watching what he did from the day he arrived, that cemented it for me that sooner was a possibility." When he was with Carolina, Giants middle linebacker Jon Beason played against Freeman a lot, and he knows the quarterback is a competitor. "Hes more than capable, hes a good dude," said Beason, who had a team-high 12 tackles against the Bears on Oct. 10 in his first start. "I know him personally, and he can make all the throws, he scrambles better than people think, so not having him on tape kind of hurts us on the defensive side because it leaves you guessing." Beason said the Giants need to stop the run first, something the team has done well in recent games LeSean McCoy of the Eagles and Matt Forte. Peterson, who rushed for 2,097 yards last season, is special, Beason said. But its a challenge he relishes. "Thats how you define yourself," Beason said. "Its all about what you do against the man. If hes the standard, then you want to see where you measure up." With the Vikings trailing against Carolina last week, Peterson was limited to 62 yards on 10 carries, a season-high 6.2 yard average. He was limited at practice on Thursday and Saturday and did not practice on Friday because of a hamstring injury. He has been listed as probable for the game. The Giants running game is a more iffy with Brandon Jacobs also fighting a hamstring. He did not practice on Saturday and is questionable for the game. If he cant go, the Giants will have to use either veteran newcomer Peyton Hollis, who was signed this week, rookie Michael Cox or feature fullback John Conner. The result is the Giants might have to rely more on Eli Manning, who leads the league with 15 interceptions. The only certainty is that this is a game between two teams desperate for a win. "Certainly we have to approach it that way in our preparation, and when were on the flight to go over there we have to approach this with a must-win mentality," Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway said. "And our coaches need to coach like that. Our players need to play like that. We just have to have that approach all week, that every game at this point is a must win." Brett Favre Jersey . The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made. By releasing Bailey, the Broncos would open up cap space with the 12-time Pro Bowl player scheduled to make around $10 million next season. Aaron Rodgers Packers Jersey .  City has reached new heights under manager Manuel Pellegrini as they transition from big spending/immediate impact to perennial contender.  Yaya Toures seeming discontent Tuesday may complicate that, as does the little issue of Financial Fair Play. http://www.shoptheofficialpackers.com/El...rs-Jersey/ . Heather, the first Gaiter to win the award, set a Canadian Inter-university Sport record with 3,132 passing yards in eight league games, an average of 391.5 yards per game. That beat the mark of 3,047 set only one week earlier by Westerns Will Finch, a Hec Crighton finalist. Paul Hornung Jersey . Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven. Ray Nitschke Womens Jersey . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void.ST. LOUIS - Odell Beckham Jr. has been virtually unstoppable. The St. Louis Rams could just be the team to hold down the prolific New York Giants rookie.The Rams (6-8) have not allowed a touchdown in three straight games, a franchise record. After consecutive shutouts against the Raiders and Redskins, they surrendered four field goals in a 12-6 loss to NFC West-leading Arizona last week.Of course theyre confident.I mean, its really good, defensive end Chris Long said. Its great to be a part of it. With the talent we have in the room and the coaching we have, we really believe anythings possible.St. Louis is heavily invested in a unit thats stepping up under Gregg Williams. The line, led by Robert Quinn, is all first-rounders; high-dollar linebackers James Laurinaitis and Alec Ogletree are jousting for the team tackle lead; and a young, hard-hitting secondary is beginning to jell.Larry Fitzgerald was neutralized last week with seven catches for just 30 yards. Washingtons Colt McCoy was sacked seven times and intercepted twice, and the Rams had six sacks and three picks against Oakland.The Giants (5-9) have improved recently, too, putting it together in consecutive double-digit wins after losing seven straight. Beckhams breakout has been a welcome distraction for a franchise mulling the future of 68-year-old coach Tom Coughlin.Last week, Beckham had a dozen receptions for 143 yards and three touchdowns against Washington. Despite missing the first four games, hes set a rookie franchise record for yards receiving and with nine TD catches is one shy of the franchise rookie mark set by Bill Swiacki in 1948.The sky is the limit for this guy, safety Antrel Rolle said. Rookie of the Year, Pro Bowl, you name it.Eli Manning must make quick reads, and hell be looking for Beckham. The 12th overall pick is averaging seven receptions per game, by far the most among the five rookie wide receivers taken in the first round.Were not going to try and force records for him, Manning said. But if we have good matchups, then well keep getting him the ball.Things to watch for in Giants-Rams:COUGHLINS FUTURE: The Giants upswing began before winning their lastt two.dddddddddddd The last three losses in the seven-game skid were by a total of 10 points, although it included a one-point setback to 2-12 Jacksonville. Since coaching his second Super Bowl championship with New York after the 2011 season, Coughlin is 21-25.No, I dont think about it at all, Coughlin said. I focus on my team and trying to be the very best that we can be and making sure that we all combine to make a great effort. Thats where my thoughts go.Coughlin has 163 career regular-season wins, second on the active list behind Bill Belichick, but just one ahead of the Rams Jeff Fisher.RAMS FUTURE: Theres a very slight chance the home finale could be the Rams swan song in St. Louis. The team could break the lease after the season if the Edward Jones Dome is not rated in the top 25 per cent of NFL stadiums. There appears to be movement behind the scenes: Former Anheuser-Busch president David Peacock and attorney Robert Blitz, both experienced in dealing with the league, were hired to consider options that might persuade billionaire owner Stan Kroenke to stay put. Theyre expected to present findings soon.Kroenke has been mum on the subject, but a rapid-fire move back to perennial stalking horse Los Angeles would be tricky given the logistics.UNFAMILIAR FOES: The Giants have won five in a row in the series and are up 3-0 by an average score of 37.7 points to 17.7 with Manning. But this will be the first meeting since 2011, and the first in St. Louis since 2008. Both coaches referenced that, Fisher calling the Giants an uncommon opponent, and Coughlin noting former New York defensive co-ordinator Steve Spagnuolo led the Rams the last time out.HILLS FUTURE: Shaun Hill is 3-2 since recapturing the job as stand-in starting quarterback for Sam Bradford. The 34-year-old journeyman has been effective if far from flashy, but he couldnt produce a touchdown last time out and could be playing for next years backup job.Its important for us to end the season on a high note, Hill said. Thats what we have this week. Well worry about next week next week.___AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys Wholesale NHL Jerseys Wholesale MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Wholesale NCAA Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys Wholesale Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
