Vikings frustrate Beckham, Giants while getting to 4-0

Minnesota’s defense denied Odell Beckham Jr. all night and forced two turnovers that led to 10 points, and the Vikings mystified Eli Manning yet again during a 24-10 victory Monday over the New York Giants.

Sam Bradford threw a touchdown pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph for the third straight game and kept his turnover-free streak since joining Minnesota intact, helping the Vikings lead from start to finish and notch their first 4-0 start since 2009. The Vikings, Eagles and Broncos are the only remaining unbeatens.

Beckham, who has yet to score this season, was smothered by cornerback Xavier Rhodes and had a career-low 23 yards on three catches.

“It’s not a one-on-one game. It’s 11-on-11, and we got beat 11-on-11 today,” Beckham said.

Victor Cruz and Sterling Shepard were quiet, too, and Manning was erratic as ever while finishing 25 for 45 for just 261 yards.
