Josh Freeman’s debut as a Viking was the boost that the New York Football Giants needed as the G-men snapped their six game losing streak with a 23-7 victory over Minnesota.

The New York Giants lost their sixth straight contest by falling to the Chicago Bears, 27-21, on Thursday night, dropping Big Blue to 0-6 on the season.
