Eli Manning struggled to get the ball down the field, completing 19-of-39 passes for 134 yards and one touchdown.
Evan Engram had another nice game with Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard all missing. He caught six passes for 60 yards and his third career touchdown.
The Giants were outgained by the Seahawks, 425 yards to 177. New York was dominated on both sides of the ball in this one, with Seattle holding the ball for 35:26.
“We have to go back, we have to take a look at the first seven weeks. Evaluate us schematically, evaluate ourselves schematically, the personnel, coaching, everything,” said Giants head coach Ben McAdoo. “Take a look at it, find a way to get our bodies back, that will be big for the second half, and then come back and prepare to win a ball game.”
Moments That Mattered
- Jonathan Casillas, Calvin Munson, Paul Perkins, Weston Richburg, Sterling Shepard, Olivier Vernon and Davis Webb were inactive for today’s game. Shepard (ankle) had been expected to play, but was unable to go for the second straight week.
- At the start of the second quarter, the Giants made a goal line stop but B.J. Goodson was called for pass interference on third and goal. The Seahawks got four more plays to try and score from the 1-yard line and the Giants once again made a goal line stop. Pete Carroll elected to go for it on fourth and goal from the 1-yard line but the Giants forced the pass incomplete, a huge stop for the Giants defense.
- The Giants defense held the Seahawks in check in the first half, allowing just a field goal. The Giants allowed 222 yards in the first half but they were able to make stops with Seattle in their red zone. The Giants led, 7-3, at the half.
- B.J. Goodson left the game in the third quarter and did not return with an ankle injury.
- The Giants were outscored 21-0 in the second half.
The Giants will play in their eighth regular season game on Nov. 5, following a Week 8 bye and will play at MetLife Stadium against the Los Angeles Rams. The game can be seen on FOX at 1 p.m. EST.
