The touchdown came on a 6-yard pass from Colt McCoy to Alfred Morris. Graham Gano missed the extra point. Wayne Gallman had the big play on the drive, a 23-yard run.
Giants go up, 8-5: The Giants took an 8-5 lead with 7:40 left in the third quarter. A 60-yard run by Wayne Gallman set up an Alfred Morris 4-yard touchdown run two plays later. Colt McCoy hit Sterling Shepard for a 2-point conversion to put the Giants ahead by three.

Can the New York Giants stretch their winning streak to four games and maintain their lead in the NFC East this Sunday? The 4-7 Giants face a huge challenge in trying to do so, having to travel across the country to face the 8-3 Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field (4:05 p.m. ET/FOX).
The Giants, who will almost certainly be without starting quarterback Daniel Jones (doubtful/hamstring) are 11-point underdogs.
After starting the season 0-5, the Giants have won three straight and four of six. Their only victory this season outside the NFC East, though, was last week’s 19-17 win over the 2-8-1 Cincinnati Bengals.
Seattle features a high-flying offense led by quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. The Seahawks are third in the league in scoring at 31.0 points per game.
Below, everything you need to know about Sunday’s game.
