The New York Giants are shutout at home by the Seattle Seahawks

The New York Giants are shutout at home by the Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon. The final score was 23-0 and the game took place at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. This whole Giants season has been a disaster but this was an awful performance especially by the offense.

Eli Manning set the franchise record for most interceptions in one season and he threw five in this game. The Giants offense in the first seven possessions had four punts and three interceptions. They had a total of 54 yards and two first downs in the first half. Eli Manning was under siege most of the day but he still has to get some blame. He finished the day 18-31 for 156 yards and the five interceptions. The Giants allowed four sacks and rushed for only 25 yards on 14 attempts. The offensive line is in shambles and the Giants are going to have to address that. Manning doesn’t get a total pass for this season but he has no running game, no offensive line and receivers who haven’t been on the same page as him the whole season. The offense has been a total mess all season.

The Giants defense did put up a fight especially considering that the offense didn’t help them at all and they were facing a really good team. Marshawn Lynch was limited to 47 yards on 16 attempts. He did receive six passes for 73 yards. The Giants did have three sacks and the Seahawks converted only three third downs.

Steve Weatherford had a good day averaging 47.5 yards per punt. He had eight kicks and put two inside the 20-yard line. The safety Ryan Mundy had six tackles and a sack in his first start since week seven. Antrel Rolle had an interception for his sixth of the season. Cullen Jenkins had a good game with three tackles two QB hits and a shared sack.

The Giants have two games left, in Detroit next week and then they finish at home against the Washington Redskins. They have nothing left to play for other then pride. It will be interesting to see if any coaching changes are made. I think the head coach has earned the right to stay to he is ready to leave. If they were going to fire him they will make it a very nice thing with him leaving and I am pretty sure he will want to come back for at least another year. I think the fall guy will be Kevin Gilbride the offensive coordinator. Jerry Reese the GM is under fire also but they aren’t going to make a change there yet. They will give him a little time especially after winning the two super bowls.
