More on the matchup: The Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants last Cheap NCAA Jerseys met in 2010, when Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw combined for over 200 rushing yards as the Giants cruised to a 21-3 victory. Adrian Peterson was held to just 26 yards in the loss, something that will likely change on Monday. Josh Freeman is the wild card for the Vikings, as his ability to stretch is the field is something Minnesota has lacked with Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel at quarterback. Freeman’s downfield passing paired with Peterson could change the outlook of Monday night’s game.
All week, this was the Manning vs. Luck title fight. Naturally, veteran defensive end Robert Mathis may have been the game’s most important player. The 11-year veteran sacked his old quarterback in the second quarter and forced a fumble that resulted in a safety. The Colts scored on the next drive, and didn’t trail for the rest of the game.
After the game when asked about sacking Manning, Mathis just smiled and said, “it felt good.”
Mathis turned 32 this spring. His two sacks on Sunday night give him 11.5 for the season, tying a career best for sacks in a season. He’s on pace to break Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record. His sack/fumble was the 39th of his career, tying Jason Taylor’s NFL record. He has 43 forced fumbles Cheap MLB Jerseys From China since 2003, the most of any player. Mathis has a good argument to be the Defensive Player of the Year.
All those players Jim Irsay said the Colts couldn’t afford during the Manning/Bill Polian era are putting them in contention in the second year of the Andrew Luck era.
