The Giants finally ended their losing start to the campaign by scoring 20 unanswered points in the final three quarters to clinch a 23-7 victory over the Vikings at the MetLife Stadium.
"We needed to get one on the board. I told [general manager] Jerry Reese that I think we have a shovel to start digging our way out of this hole," Tuck told The AP.
"Hopefully, tonight is something we can build off. It's still a long way to climb out of this hole. But this was something that we could get the ball rolling."
The Giants will face the Philadelphia Eagles in an NFC East clash on Sunday.
