Giants-Vikings: 5 plays that lead to the Giants’ playoff victory

The New York Giants on Sunday won their first playoff game since Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5, 2012. In Brian Daboll’s inaugural season - a year that was perceived as a “rebuild” - New York upset the 13-4 Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium by a score of 31-24.

Daboll and Mike Kafka approached the game with a similar mindset to their Week 16 loss against Minnesota, with one major adjustment. The coaching duo leveraged quarterback Daniel Jones’ ability to operate the quick passing attack; only this time, Jones’ rushing ability was a bigger part of the game plan.
