Adrian Peterson to the left. A.P. to the right. Peterson more often than not in the nationally televised game on Monday night between two of the league’s biggest flops this season. The Giants (0-6) are reasonably sure Freeman isn’t going to know the offense totally after just a couple of weeks with the Vikings (1-4).
