Giants-Seahawks final score: Giants blown out, 24-3

From a playoff team in 2022, the New York Giants have gone to what many expected from them in 2022 — a bottom-feeder. Against a Seattle Seahawks team beset by injuries on both sides of the ball, the Giants not only laid an egg by a final score of 24-3 but looked utterly unfit to be on the same football field as their opponent.

This was a full-team stinker for the Giants, spanning all three phases of the game. Giants fans are jumping from one coach to another to blame, but it was a collective effort. Each offensive or defensive series and each special teams play led to new lows.

Coach Brian Daboll after the game

With two more starting offensive linemen out plus their lone blocking tight end, the Giants’ blocking could not be any shakier. Daniel Jones sustained 10 sacks, including a strip sack that led to the Seahawks’ first touchdown of the game, as well as a pick 6 that sealed the game for Seattle.

Jones shouldered the blame for the loss:

Other Giant observations

Giants' Tyrod Taylor eagerly awaiting his Geno Smith moment | New York Post

“Hats off to Geno,” Taylor said last week. “I’m definitely happy for what he’s been able to accomplish and the obstacles he’s been able to overcome to make the best of his situation. As a backup quarterback, you prepare for those moments, and if they come then it’s your time to show what you can do. I’m confident that if the opportunity presents itself for me, I can do the same.”

As pressure mounts for the Giants, Daniel Jones remains 'steady' |

Jones generally doesn't. He does a good job of sheltering himself from the outside world. In fact, he once told ESPN he rarely knew there was a firestorm going on outside the building unless it was relayed to him by his mother.

And when he does know, he has found a comfortable routine that helps him cope. Jones talks with a sports psychologist weekly, and uses his family as an additional sounding board. He also does yoga regularly.

10. New York Giants: WR Keon Coleman, Florida State. The Giants may use their first-round pick on the trenches when all is said and done, but for now, we’ll give them an offensive weapon — specifically, a mold they don’t have in a contested-catch machine. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Coleman has hauled in four contested catches already this season.

Three Takeaways: Dolphins Drop First Game of 2023, Lose to Buffalo 48-20 |

On those two possessions, the Dolphins averaged 8.0 air yards per attempt. On the ensuing four possessions, Miami averaged just 0.1 air yards per attempt. The Dolphins battled attrition on the offensive line and in the receiver room but it just didn't seem like the same Miami offense we grew accustomed to seeing thus far in 2023.

Terron Armstead out at least this week with a knee injury | Pro Football Talk

Head coach Mike McDaniel said on Monday that the team expects LT Terron Armstead to return to action this season, but that he will not play against the Giants in Week Five and that his return timetable will be measured in weeks rather than days. Kendall Lamm replaced Armstead for the final 43 offensive snaps on Sunday.

The Good, Bad & Ugly from the Miami Dolphins Week 4 loss to the Buffalo Bills | The Phinsider

Miami’s defenders looked like they were coated in Crisco because nearly every time they tried to bring down a Bills’ ball-carrier, the first would-be tackler missed. The second defender often missed as well. Sometimes the third try was also comically unsuccessful. It was that kind of abysmal day for the Dolphins defense.

Mike McDaniel and Miami got a reminder of how far they have to go to be what and where they want to be. And they acknowledged it.
