The Giants are coming off their first win in over a month, as they beat the Commanders last Sunday night, 20-12. Barkley stepped up when New York needed him the most, racking up 120 yards of total offense and a touchdown in the win. It was the first time since Week 10 that Giants fans saw their running back put up numbers like that.

The win moved the Giants’ record to 8-5-1 and helped their playoff standings greatly, giving them one more win than the Commanders (7-6-1) as well as the Seahawks and Lions who are both (7-7) on the season. Heading into this week, the Giants own the 6th playoff seed of in the NFC with the Commanders holding onto the 7th and final playoff spot.

The Vikings are coming off their record setting comeback win over the Colts. Kirk Cousins and company were able to overcome a 33-0 half time deficit to beat Indy in overtime 36-33. Cousins threw for a career high 460 yards and four touchdowns in the win while wide receivers Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn reeled in over 120 yards each with a touchdown apiece. The game marked a first for Cousins as he threw for over 400 yards in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. 

Although last week’s comeback was their biggest miracle since the 2017 playoffs’ “Minneapolis Miracle” against the Saints, it wasn’t their first of the season. In Week 10, they were able to comeback and beat the Bills in Buffalo, 33-30 in overtime after a series of crazy events. Now Kirk Cousins and the Vikings will not only try to beat the Giants in this 1 p.m. kickoff, but then hope the Eagles lose their 4:25 kickoff with the Cowboys. Vikings win-out through the rest of the season combined with the Eagles losing-out, means Minnesota takes the number one seed in the NFC.

The Action Network (opens in new tab) has the Vikings as 4.5-point favorites to beat the Giants, up a point from earlier this week.

The game starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 p.m. PT today (Dec. 24)

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $55 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $70 per month.

Oh, and if you're OK with just watching the Giants vs Vikings live stream on mobile devices (phones and tablets), it's also available on the $4.99 per month NFL Plus.
