The Minnesota Vikings will start Tavaris Jackson at QB against the New York Giants at Ford Field. If Jackson goes down then Sidney Rice will be the backup.
This is Jackson’s first start since 2008 and I’m sure he’ll try and take advantage of it and prove to Leslie Frazier that he is going to lead them for many years to come.
If Jackson sucks, then that’ll just speed up the process to draft Heisman-winner Cam Newton in the NFL Draft.
It’s a big game tonight for the New York Giants. They cannot afford to lose tonight because if they lose tonight and lose to the Eagles they’ll be out of the NFC East running (Philly clinches) and just about out of the playoffs yet again. Tonight they have to beat up on the Vikes, hopefully get a ton of fantasy points on defense for yours truly, and show they won’t collapse in the 2nd half of the season again.
And yes, before you ask, I intentionally didn’t mention him.
