The New York Giants have lost three straight and a trip to Seattle will not make things easier. New York was embarrassed by the Colts on Monday Night Football, 40-24. New York faced a double digit deficit for nearly the entire game as its defense was unable to stop Andrew Luck. Eli Manning threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. led the way with eight catches for 156 yards. New York’s once vaunted defensive line was unable to generate pressure on Luck, sacking him only one time.
The Seattle Seahawks have won two straight games, but currently sit two games behind the Arizona Cardinals in a race for the NFC West. Last week, Seattle defeated the Oakland Raiders, 30-24. Running back Marshawn Lynch totaled 137 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. Wilson only completed 17-of-35 attempts for 179 yards. Seattle’s defense, however, played very well and forced three Oakland turnovers. Seattle won the turnover battle, 3-0.
Current NFL odds list the Seahawks as 10.5 point home favorites. Last year, Seattle embarrassed New York 23-0 at MetLife Stadium. Manning threw five interceptions in the loss. Seattle out-rushed New York, 134 to 25. Expect Seattle’s raucous home crowd to make things extremely difficult for a New York defense that has struggled in recent weeks.
