Live by the fourth-quarter comeback, die by the fourth-quarter comeback. After winning two straight games in which they trailed in the fourth quarter, the New York Giants could not pull off another rally Sunday, losing to the Seattle Seahawks, 36-25.

The Giants got within five yards of glory, but on second and goal from the 10-yard line with 1:25 to play Victor Cruz had an Eli Manning pass bounce off his hands. Brandon Browner intercepted, running the ball 94 yards for a game-deciding touchdown.

Forget the three picks, don't blame this one on Manning. He passed for a career high 420 yards and threw three touchdown passes. At times, it was like he was out there by himself.

He got zero help from the Giants' running game, no help from a porous offensive line and little help from a defense that allowed Seattle (2-3) to march up and down the field, getting 424 total yards of offense.

The Giants are 3-2.
