The Seahawks have been slightly off balance in the last few games but they’re ready to level out. Quarterback Russell Wilson is planning on helping his team get to 6-3 while sending Manning away with another loss.
Last year, Seattle routed the Giants 23-0 to get their first shutout of that season. They destroyed the Giants on their home turf. That particular win moved the Seahawks to 12-2 and helped them remain in control of the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The Giants dropped to 5-9.
Manning threw a total of five interceptions in the game. However, despite the strong defensive effort, the Seahawks could only score a field goal in the first quarter.
Seattle took advantage of Manning’s second interception with a powerful two-yard touchdown by running back Marshawn Lynch. The score brought them to a 13-0 lead into the locker room at halftime, keeping the Giants to just 54 total yards in the first half.
Manning’s third pick came on a Hail Mary, with cornerback Richard Sherman catching his second interception of the day.
The Giants continued to drag in the second half, with Manning throwing a fourth interception. The Seahawks weren’t firing on all cylinders on offense, but it was just enough to keep New York from doing anything. Doug Baldwin gave the Seahawks another six points after he caught a pass from Wilson in the fourth quarter to extend Seattle’s lead to 23-0 and cap the win.
This year they plan to get another win off of the broken New York Giants.
The Seahawks are in second in the NFC West and are trying to catch the 7-1 Arizona Cardinals.
The game will be on Sunday at 4:25 PM on FOX at CenturyLink Field.
