Start spreading the news — the New York Giants are back.
The Giants became the first road team to win in the 2022 NFL playoffs, taking down the Minnesota Vikings 31-24 in an upset victory. It marked the playoff debuts for head coach Brian Daboll, quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley, and the first playoff win for the Giants since their Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots nearly 11 years ago.
Jones passed for 301 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions while also rushing for a game-high 78 yards. Barkley also recorded 109 total yards and two rushing touchdowns, and Daboll’s game management earned praise as the Giants jumped out to a 17-7 lead and never trailed.
LeBron James and former Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. were among those who reacted to the upset victory as Daboll, Jones and Barkley all got plenty of credit.
