Today the Seattle Seahawks will look to extend their two-game winning streak against the New York Giants on Military Appreciation day at CenturyLink Field.
Since 1976 these two teams have met 16 times, with the Giants holding the edge in the series with a 9-7 record. However, the past two meetings have been dominated by the Seahawks. In December of 2013 Seattle traveled to East Rutherford, NJ and shut down Manning and the Giants in a 23-0 route. Two years earlier, Seattle also traveled to New Jersey and came out 36-25 winners.
Eli Manning threw five interceptions in the 23-0 loss to the Hawks in 2013 and was eventually replaced by backup QB Curtis Painter. In the 2011 game Manning threw for 420 yards and 3 TD’s, but his 3 INT’s allowed the Hawks to cap off a comeback in which cornerback Brandon Browner sealed the game on an INT returned 94 yards for a TD with just over a minute to play.
Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst both attempted more than 19 passes and threw one TD in the win.
Seattle will look to continue the trend at home with a much more talented team behind starter Russell Wilson and the Legion of Boom.
