Giants-Vikings Wild Card live updates: Score, news, more from NFL playoffs

A renaissance season for the Giants first took them to Minnesota — and now, will take them to Philadelphia with a chance to advance even further in the postseason.

Big Blue claimed its first playoff victory since its Super Bowl XLVI over the Patriots 11 years ago, defeating the Vikings, 31-24, behind a strong performance from Daniel Jones and two touchdown runs from Saquon Barkley. Xavier McKinney broke up a fourth-down pass intended for tight end T.J. Hockenson on Minnesota’s final possession to seal the victory.

Three weeks after losing on a 61-yard field goal as time expired, the Giants capitalized on their second chance against the Vikings — and their first chance against any team in the playoffs in six years — and knocked off the NFC’s No. 3 seed at U.S. Bank Stadium. They’ll face the Eagles for the third time this season in the divisional round next weekend.
