Giants_Manning_2013 [1]The New York Giants got their first win of the season Monday night by holding Adrian Peterson in check and converting Minnesota mistakes into a 23-7 victory.

The Giants began the season with six losses in which they were the team turning over the ball and showing little penchant for playing defense. But against the Vikings (1-5), they were efficient enough, if not overwhelming, and had three takeaways.

Peterson, the league’s MVP last season, was held to 28 yards rushing five days after his 2-year-old son was buried in South Dakota. The man accused in the death was indicted on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges Monday.

Peterson was not aided by a rusty Josh Freeman, making his debut as Vikings quarterback.
Josh Brown kicked three field goals, Rueben Randle caught a 24-yard TD pass and Peyton Hills ran for a TD for New York (1-6).
