Diggs expressed his frustrations toward quarterback Kirk Cousins, implying "there's truth to all rumors" regarding the possibility that the wide receiver wants to be traded from the Vikings, according to the St Paul Pioneer Press. It bears watching whether Cousins can restore a similar rapport with Diggs, particularly after the events of the past week and another pedestrian day for the receiver, who had three catches for 44 yards on four targets.

The Vikings needed a big win to at least start getting the taste from last week's game out of their mouth and while it remains to be seen how Diggs feels about things, you'd think that this game would at least be viewed as one step in the right direction. The passing game is back in synch with the run.

The Vikings defense welcomed rookie Daniel Jones to the National Football League in his third start, with a good mix of blitzes that lead to four sacks on the day. "I thought it was a very balanced attack today through the pass game and the run game".

Coming into this game, a smart plan for the G-Men would have been to play tight in the box and let Kirk Cousins beat them. Two plays later he gets some protection and throws a attractive, 35-yard touchdown pass to rookie receiver Darius Slayton. The Giants couldn't even try to run inside the red zone, so thanks to the leaky line they ended up moving backwards.

Still, despite all that, Jones was an OK 7 of 12 for 72 yards in the first half.

"Good pocket presence, strong arm, mobile", Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards said about Jones.

President Donald Trump called the quarterback to "briefly congratulate him and the Vikings on the win in New York", Minnesota TV station WCCO reported. Minnesota had their way with the Giants' defense on first and second downs, converting 38 percent of their first and second down passing plays into more first downs. The Giants are going to need to sign a running back this week, and that's a problem considering their next game is four days away (in New England). He entered the game without Saquon Barkley, and then lost Wayne Gallman to a concussion on the first drive.

David Mayo started on the inside with Connelly last week and played well. Sunday they dropped a 28-10 decision to Minnesota. It can be a strong mix if they can get into a groove while finding enough work to keep Stefon Diggs (and Kyle Rudolph, who's dutifully performed his blocking role while catching just six passes for 36 yards this year) happy. Danielle Hunter had seven tackles, two sacks and two quarterback hurries to lead the Vikings.
