The New York Giants came into Seattle riding a four-game winning streak and a 6-1 record. The Seahawks were also hot, winning three of their last four and sitting atop the NFC West.
The weight of the winning streak (and their depleted roster) were too much for the Giants to overcome this week as they fell to the Seahawks, 27-13.
In front of a rowdy Lumen Field crowd, both defenses controlled the game early. Each side came up with some big stops, clutch tackles and forced turnovers.
Coming out of halftime, the Giants were in familiar territory down three points. And similarly to previous weeks, they kept the game within a single score entering the fourth quarter.
After tying things up midway through the final frame, the Giants defense finally broke and put the undermanned offense in a hole. Special teams miscues only compounded issues and unlike their five comeback wins earlier this season, Big Blue couldn’t rebound this time.
With the loss, the Giants drop to 6-2 on the season and head into their bye week.
