Game Notes:
"The Giants were ahead at halftime and I was hoping they would be able to go all the way today, but sadly that didn't happen. Odell Beckham Jr. was our big hope going into this game and he did his part. It's actually hard to believe that a rookie who missed training camp and the first part of the season could play this well with only a few games under his belt. I was happy to see that the other receivers stepped up in this game, making catches that seemed to be beyond their capabilities just last week, and they were doing it on the road against a tough Seahawks team in a tough stadium.
I was feeling real good for a long time watching this game and the score was even tied going into the fourth quarter. In the end though the offense was a real disappointment not being able to score a single point in the second half, and the defense couldn't stop quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch from running all over them. The Seahawks came up with 24 points and the Giants had none so the score at the end of this game was 38-17. With a 3-6 record, I hope it's not the end of the Giants as well as far as this season goes."

Game Notes:
"The Giants wanted to get off to a fast start and they did that sort of. Eli Manning started off with a 12 yard first down pass to tight end Daniel Fells. Then Andre Williams ran up the middle for four yards, but that's where the fast start ended. Manning then threw two short passes to his running backs Williams and Peyton Hillis and both fell incomplete. At least they started a game with one first down before having to punt.
Then the defense on their turn had no trouble stopping the Seahawks on 3rd downs in their opening drive, mainly because there were none. Quarterback Russell Wilson marched his team downfield quickly with four first downs on five plays down to the Giants 1 yard line. There was no more room for first downs so the Seahawks had to settle for a one yard touchdown run by Marshawn Lynch. It looked like disaster loomed big once again in Seattle for the visiting team as it has in so many games before, but the Giants did give it a go.
Manning got the troops to the midfield area before they had to punt and Wilson was intercepted immediately on his first pass by Zack Bowman. With great field position at the Seahawks 24 yard line, the Giants were in the endzone in just five quick plays to tie the score at 7-7. The Giants defense held, thanks in part to Robert Ayers putting a nice dent in their drive with an 8 yard sack, and three plays later they were punting.
Manning kept the pressure up with a drive that included two long passes to Beckham and three runs by Williams, the last of which was a three yard touchdown run to put them up 14-7 early in the second quarter. Things were looking up for the Giants, especially when Antrel Rolle recovered a fumble on the Seahawks next turn. Unfortunately the Giants weren't able to capitalize on it this time and had to punt. Seattle came back with a touchdown and then the Giants added a field goal to end the half putting them up 17-14
This was all too good to be true, and as may be expected, it didn't last. In the third quarter the Seahawks managed a field goal to tie things up. Then Manning followed up, maybe getting a little too greedy on a first down play, unwisely throwing his pass deep downfield to Beckham who had too much coverage and the pass was intercepted and returned 47 yards. Seven plays later, six running and one pass incompletion, the Seahawks took the lead 24-17. It was really over at that point as the Giants showed they couldn't stop Russell Wilson and his running back Lynch, who broke tackle after tackle to finish the game with a total of 140 yards and 4 touchdowns.
You could say there's no shame to go down to a defending Super Bowl Championship team and the Giants did put up a good fight for awhile, but they really needed an upset today. They had a chance to do so, but they weren't able to make it happen."
