Here are three things that will happen when the Seahawks play the Giants in week 13.
The Seahawks are presumably in their easiest part of the 2020 schedule as they play four straight losing teams starting with their week 12 over the Philadelphia Eagles. But there is a catch to all this. Except for the New York Jets (are they still in the NFL?), the other three teams all have very good defenses. So don’t expect this week’s matchup versus the Giants to be an easy win.
In fact, the Eagles, Giants and Washington Football Team all ranked in the top 16 of the NFL in points allowed and the Eagles were the worst of the bunch. The Giants are 10th in points allowed at 23 points a game. This is what Seattle will have to worry about on Sunday.
Seattle never seems to make games overly easy for their 12s and I doubt week 13 will be much better. Sure, the Giants have an amazingly bad offense (like the Eagles and Washington Football Team) but a good defense has the ability to steal a game for its team even without the help of the offense.
The Giants are 15th in passer rating allowed at 93.3 (the Seahawks are 22nd at 96.2) and are 11th in sacks with 27 (the Seahawks somewhat surprisingly are 7th with 31). New York is 7th in pressure percentage at 24.6 percent (Seattle is 18th at 21.8 percent). And the Giants are 6th in the league allowing just 3.9 yards a carry from opposing offenses (Seattle is third at 3.7).
My point in all this is that the Seahawks are not going to walk into Luman Field on Sunday and have an easy game.
