Elsa

One last look back at Giants-Vikings.

Let's look at the snap counts and Pro Football Focus grades from Monday's victory by the New York Giants over the Minnesota Vikings.

PFF Grades

Offense

Best
Eli Manning +2.0
John Conner +1.7
Will Beatty +1.6

Worst
Hakeem Nicks -2.8
Larry Donnell -1.9
Kevin Boothe -1.4
Peyton Hillis -1.1

Takeaways: Still not a lot of positve scores here, and what is going on with Hakeem Nicks? He caught only two passes in 10 targets.

Defense

Best
Shaun Rogers +3.0
Antrel Rolle +2.8
Jason Pierre-Paul +2.8
Justin Tuck +2.6
Jacquian Williams +2.6
Linval Joseph +1.1

Worst
Mathias Kiwanuka -2.8
Prince Amukamara -1.2
Trumaine McBride -1.1

Takeaways: Hey, those of us calling for Shaun Rogers to be inactive in favor of rookie Johnathan Hankins are really smart, aren't we? Maybe, just maybe, the coaching staff has a clue.

Snap Counts

Player Pos. Snaps
Kevin Boothe OG 74
Justin Pugh OT 74
David Diehl OG 74
