Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here is your Giants Morning Report on yet another miserable Monday.

Defense? What Defense?

Jason Pierre-Paul issued the quote of the year, maybe the quote of the century, after the game.

Unfortunately for the Giants, Pierre-Paul's quote was all too appropriate. The defense played like, well, crap.

  • Seattle gained 510 yards, the fourth straight game in which the Giants have given up 423 yards or more.
  • The Seahawks ran for 350 yards, the most the Giants have given up since surrendering 366 to the Buffalo Bills in 1978.
  • The 350 yards rushing is the most by an NFL team since Kansas City ran for 352 in a 2012 game vs. Indianapolis.
  • Seattle had 27 first downs, most by a Giants' opponent this season, and punted just once.
  • The Seahawks averaged 7.9 yards per play.
