Vikings 49, Giants 17

Vikings wrap up spot with rout

MINNEAPOLIS — Adrian Peterson ran for 104 yards and a touchdown over three quarters, safety Harrison Smith took one of Eli Manning's three interceptions into the end zone and the Vikings clinched a playoff spot by routing the Giants on a frigid night.

Teddy Bridgewater turned in a sharp performance, Blair Walsh chipped in five field goals and the Vikings set up an NFC North championship game next week at Green Bay.

With Peterson on the sideline, Jerick McKinnon rushed for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including a 68-yard romp through a disinterested defense with the temperature down to 11 degrees.

Manning and the Giants badly missed suspended wide receiver Odell Beckham and his 1,396 yards and 13 touchdowns.
