MINNESOTA VIKINGS (2-8)
It was Josh Freeman’s turn to lead the musical chairs of the Vikings’ passing attack. Freeman replaced injured starter Christian Ponder. The Giants held Freeman to 20 for 53 passing, 37% completions, and 0 TD/1 INT.
That might have been a possibility except for the fact that Freeman started 3 other games for the Tampa Bay Bucs this year.
In those 3 games, he threw for 48%, 46%, and 41% completions. Not to mention 2 TDs/3 INTs. The guy was downright miserable long before the Giants played him. In 4 starts he failed to complete at least 50% of his passes even ONE TIME?
One last stat on Freeman’s 4-game starting exploits, they landed him with a horrid 52.6 QB Rating. 48 NFL QB’s who have thrown 50+ passes this season, Freeman’s QBR ranks 45th out of 48. Only 3 QB’s were more useless to their team.
