Giants-Seahawks Final Score: Giants routed, 23-0

Eli Manning throws career-worst five interceptions as Giant fall to Seattle, 23-0.

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants were absolutely outclassed and embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, losing, 23-0, at MetLife Stadium.

This is how things went for the Giants:

Quarterback Eli Manning threw a career-worst five interceptions. The Giants' QB has now tied his career-worst with 25 interceptions and the Giants' league-worst turnover total is now 39. He also has 169 career interceptions, surpassing Charlie Conerly for most in Giants' franchise history.

Manning, wasn't the only culprit for the Giants. His receivers made little to no effort to compete for the ball on any of the interceptions. The Giants ran the ball for only 25 yards on 14 carries, 1.8 yards per carry. The offensive line was atrocious. Manning was sacked three times, backup  Curtis Painter once and the quarterbacks were under duress many other times. The Giants only crossed into Seattle territory once.

The Giants were shut out for the second time this season, the first a 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers early in the season.

Credit the Giants' defense with keeping the game from being a complete embarrassment. The Giants sacked Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson four times, forced a trio of Seattle field goals, kept running back Marshawn Lynch (16 carries, 47 yards, 2.9 yards per carry) in check and prevented the game from being even more lopsided.

Injuries

Victor Cruz left the game in the third quarter after landing awkwardly while trying to make a catch.

Left guard James Brewer left the game early in the third quarter with what was announced as an ankle injury.
