Chat with us during this high-profile NFC matchup.

It’s Monday and you know what that means. Okay, sure, it means we’re all grumpy after another Detroit Lions loss. But it also means more football! This week the 2-1 New York Giants face the 3-0 Minnesota Vikings.

The Giants are coming off a tough home loss to their divisional opponent in Washington and remain a game behind the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East lead. The Vikings, on the other hand, are in the driver’s seat of the NFC North after sweeping all of their opponents through three weeks. Their latest dominant performance over the Panthers was their most impressive game, especially considering it was on the road. Although, now that the Panther are an incredibly disappointing 1-3 on the year, that may take a little bit away from the Vikings’ glory.

Still, there’s a lot at stake in this game and it’s not very often we actually get a semi-decent matchup on Monday night. So enjoy the festivities and chat below.

Time: 8:30 p.m. ET
