The New York Giants (6-8) and the Minnesota Vikings (9-5) will face each other tonight. They’ll kick off around 8:25 pm on NBC on Sunday Night Football.

The Giants will be without their top star Odell Beckham Jr., who is serving his one-game suspension for what happened last week against the Carolina Panthers. They’re also playing out their season as there’s no hope of them making the playoffs after the Washington Redskins won the NFC East last night.
