Giants Vs. Vikings: Detroit Crowd Could Counter Minnesota's Travel Advantage

So many Detroit football fans lined up to get free tickets to tonight’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants that Ford Field had to stop handing them out. Bad sign for the Vikings — Detroit’s an NFC North rival town, meaning the Vikes are walking into an all-out road game. And they won’t even boo the Giants!

Daily Norseman, our Vikings community, is just happy to be playing on Monday Night Football so late in the season, while Big Blue View is worried about the effects of all this travel on the Giants. New York has been on the road since early Saturday morning, and DE Justin Tuck has just about had it:

“A lot of guys are jet-lagged and tired,” defensive end Justin Tuck said from the Giants’ Detroit hotel earlier tonight. "Right now we’re just trying to get off our feet and trying to get our minds back into the football game. There’s been lot of ups downs and uncertainty around it. At least now we know where we’re playing and there are things we have to handle on the football field.

We’re going to get to see a really interesting crowd dynamic tonight, as Lions fans would cheer for just about anybody over the Vikings. Will that make up for all the time the Giants have spent traveling and sitting in hotels all weekend?
