The New York Giants lost to the Seattle Seahawks, 27-13, on Sunday. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the 6-2 Giants.

Seattle quarterback Geno Smith hit Tyler Lockett with a 33-yard touchdown pass to break a 13-13 tie with 9:18 to play. Seattle sealed the game on a 16-yard Kenneth Walker III touchdown run with 5:31 to play.

The second score was set up when Richie James fumbled his second punt of the game, giving Seattle the ball at the Giants’ 32-yard line with 6:18 to play.

James was carted off the field after the second lost fumble. He was quickly ruled out with a concussion.

The Giants, who have trailed in every game this season, entered the fourth quarter behind, 13-10. Before Sunday, they were 4-0 this season when trailing to start the fourth quarter.

“The just did a better job than we did,” said Giants head coach Brian Daboll. “We just didn’t do enough today.”
