The Giants certainly catch a break by not having to play before a loud hometown crowd at the Metrotdome in Minnesota. Even though the Vikings have been a mess this season and are out of the playoff race, they still should give the Giants a good game. But they won't have their usual advantage of noisy fans making it difficult to hear.

This quick hit will keep you up to date on what's out there, both on and off the field.
