Seahawks versus Giants: 3 bold predictions week 13
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks offense will struggle a bit too
Something seems off with Russell Wilson, doesn’t it? I am not overreacting but as any 12 can see with their own eyes Seattle’s offense simply hasn’t been the same since week 8. Yes, the Seahawks did score 34 points against the Bills in week 9 but that was because the game was not close and Buffalo played off a bit in the second half. To start that game, Seattle’s offense sputtered.
In the last three weeks, Seattle has had three of their four worst scoring games of the season and scored 23 points or less twice. Three of four of Seattle’s worst total yards achieved have come in the last three weeks as well and Wilson hasn’t thrown for more than 225 yards since week 9. Something is off.
As I said in slide one of this piece, the Giants have a good defense and will make it difficult for the Seahawks offense to work downfield with two safeties high. The Giants defense might look a lot like the Vikings defense did in week five against Seattle when the Seahawks did not score in the first half. Week five also marked Seattle’s fewest first downs of the season (18), third-lowest scoring game (27), second-fewest passing yards (190) and second-fewest total yards (314).
So while Seattle does have the more talented roster over the Giants, this game will not be as relatively easy of game as week 12 was. No, the Giants should not do much on offense but Seattle might not either so a bad turnover or two could change the outcome of the game,
