The New York Giants have lost again this time to the Seattle Seahawks with a score of 38 to 17. With the loss the Giants fall to 3 – 6 and Seattle 6 – 3 on the year.
This one was closer than the score indicates with the Giants winning at halftime and the score tired through three quarters. The fourth quarter had the breaks all go the Seahawk’s way with an Eli interception, two fumbles by Seattle that they recovered, and a run game that seemed dominate on the night. Russel Wilson did throw two interceptions which were caught by Zach Bowman and Quentin Demps.
Eli and Odell Beckham played well for the Giants, but several costly false start and holding penalties by the offensive line derailed otherwise promising drives in the second half of the game. With Seattle’s run game being dominate the time of possession went the way of Seattle, which Bruce was disappointed to see, particularly during the third quarter when an 8 minute drive limited the opportunities for the Giants.
Marshawn Lynch had 146 yards and 4 touchdowns and seemed unstoppable for much of the night. Wilson had numerous quartback sneaks on roll outs that the Giants did not properly contain.
The loss all but pushes the Giants out of the division race given the strong performance by Dallas. Seattle is still in the hunt for the division but last year’s Super Bowl winners are still trailing the division leading Arizona Cardinals.
