If experts from around the Inter-Google are correct, the New York Giants will be entering their bye week with a 1-6 record. Few appear to be giving the Giants a chance to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Let’s look at some of the predictions.
MDS’s take: The Giants showed their first signs of life in beating the Broncos on Sunday, but the Seahawks aren’t going to let them make it two in a row.
MDS’s pick: Seahawks 20, Giants 10.
Florio’s take: Hopefully the fumes of that first win for the Giants will last a while. The Seahawks are simply too good to lose this one, and they won’t step into the same post-bye complacency pothole that took down Denver last week.
Florio’s pick: Seahawks 27, Giants 10.

The Giants have a lot more confidence after that shocker in Denver, where all their wholesale personnel and play-calling changes paid off. They won’t sneak up on Seattle, fresh off a bye and ready to show off a better overall offense. The Seahawks have great success flying this far cross country with Pete Carroll and will put Big Blue back in its place.
