Three and out: Notes from Seahawks Week 8 win over Giants
By Almar Reyes
Another week, another win for the NFC West division leader, yes, division leader, the Seattle Seahawks. This win by the Seahawks over a 6-1 New York Giants team was huge, as they continue to roll as they win their third straight win and stay atop their division.
Seattle’s win over the New York Football Giants proved that the Seahawks could close out a tightly contested game. The win by the Seahawks also halted the Giants’ four-game win streak and prevented them from keeping pace with the undefeated Eagles in the NFC East. The Seattle Seahawks keep proving all doubters wrong this season with an impressive all-around win in Week 8.
As all other teams around them keep bolstering their rosters to try to keep pace with them, the Seahawks keep winning to prevent them from inching closer. Seattle will need this type of victory as earlier this season, they were having a tough time stopping anyone, especially the other team’s running game. Their defense keeps improving as they were able to hold the Giants to 13 points in this week’s matchup.
Takeaways from the Seahawks Week 8 victory
Much like their Week 7 win against their division rival, the Cardinals, the Seahawks were tasked to try to stop a mobile quarterback in Daniel Jones with the Giants. Although, not as a flashy runner as Kyler Murray, Jones can get out of the pocket and burst to try to get chunk yardage from time to time. Not only do the Seahawks have their hands full against Jones, but they also had to try to contain a revitalized running back this year, Saquon Barkley.
As the Seahawks celebrate this win and move to Week 9, here are the notes from this Seahawks’ win over the Giants in Week 8.
