The New York Giants are no strangers to the bright glare of the media spotlight. There isn’t such a thing as a regional telecast of a game. Every game is a big deal in New York and millions of fans are watching every time.

So, coming off a home loss to Washington, there is more than a little concern among Giants fans heading into their Monday road game against the undefeated Minnesota Vikings.

Quarterback Eli Manning spoke to the New York media Wednesday and gave the Vikings their due respect. After watching film on the Vikings defense, he came away from it with a healthy respect – as if he didn’t already have it given his brutal career record against the Vikings.

“They’re a good team,” Manning said. “They’re 3-0 and playing great football. Their defense is playing outstanding. They’re getting turnovers and getting sacks. Teams aren’t moving the ball much on them and they aren’t scoring. We have to have a great game plan. We have to understand that we have to protect the football. We can’t give them a short field. We have to play smart – smarter than what we’ve been doing. Hopefully, we can still go out there and execute, hit some big plays and be explosive. We have to continue to do some of the good things that we’ve been doing.”
