The Giants fired head coach Ben McAdoo before season’s end following a debacle in which he benched quarterback Eli Manning. They finished with the second worst record in the NFL behind the 0-16 Cleveland Browns.
Shurmur and the 13-3 Vikings ranked 10th in scoring offense despite losing their starting quarterback and running back to injury.
