The Giants travel to Seattle with hopes of stealing a win against the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. The Giants are trying to avoid their fourth straight loss after winning three in a row.

"You spend a lot of time talking to your football team. It?s a short week to do that," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "We?ve had that opportunity in a couple of sessions and, you know, it?s an emotional thing. A lot of people don?t understand how emotionally draining it is, especially when you lose. To get over that and get moving, but I think we?re getting there."

The 3-5 Giants take their jalopy of a team out to the Pacific Northwest to face the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks this Sunday. The way things have been going here for the Giants, it's a wonder how anyone could entertain the notion that they have even a remote chance of winning.

The Giants are once again overrun with key injuries this season and are going up against a Seattle team that is not exactly playing at the level they were last season. That shouldn't matter. This Giant team is not a clutch one, especially on the road.

The Giants have not beaten a winning team on the road since Week 6?of the 2012 season against San Francisco. Last season they won only three games on the road, period: at Washington, Detroit and the Philly, who started Matt Barkley at QB. The Giants won, 15-7, in a?game that featured?five Josh Brown FGs.

Not a pleasant experience for the Giants and their fans yesterday at MetLife Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks came in here and squashed what's left of the Giants" offense, 23-0.

"I expected a great effort today. I think defensively and with our special teams, we got it," said Tom Coughlin after the game. "Offensively we did not ? there?s no way to sugarcoat it. A pathetic offensive performance ? we didn?t block anybody, we didn?t make any plays, we didn?t create any opportunities for ourselves. I told the players who prepared and gave great effort that I appreciated what they did, and I told those that were obvious they had not, that I felt sorry for them because they?re missing the whole point."

The Giants defense knew it would be a tough test today against the Seattle Seahawks, the NFC's top team that bolsters not only a strong running game, but also an offense that effectively utilizes the passing game. ?However, they had no idea that stepping onto the field at MetLife Stadium, they would have to battle not only a team predicted to make it to the Super Bowl, but also their own offense.

With five turnovers on the day, all interceptions by Eli Manning, the Giants defense was put in difficult situations on the field, countless times and although the final score was a blowout, 23-0, the blame cannot be on the defense. a unit that showed the only sign of life in a game that was just painful to watch.

The Giants have been locking up the best rushers in the league this season and now will face Seattle's Marshawn Lynch, who is currently fifth in the NFL with 1,042 yards. On defense, the Seahawks sport the league's top pass defense.

Vegas has made Seattle 7-point favorites and the over/under is a very moderate 41 1/2.

I don't expect a who lot of scoring, so the OU looks pretty much in line. The Seahawks are a lock to win at home, but on the road they have lost twice and in several games, had difficulty scoring. ?That doesn't mean they won't come in and trounce the turnover-prone Giants.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is coming back to the Meadowlands this week, a place he knows very well having coached both the Jets and the Patriots in the 1990's. A west-coast guy by nature, Carroll has spent this millennium coaching at USC and now the Seahawks.

He's coming back to the area with the NFC's top-rated team and will play this Sunday in the stadium that will host the Super Bowl in less than two months.

"No, we?re not looking at it that way," Carroll told reporters Wednesday. "We?re just trying to get there and get focused on this game and take care of business and we?ve talked about that a long ways down the road.? That really shouldn?t be in our business at all right now."

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

In Week 15, the Giants (5-8) host the Seattle Seahawks (11-2) in a game in which Big Blue has little shot of winning.

The Giants were officially eliminated from playoff contention against the Chargers, while the Seahawks currently hold the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Former Giant LB and current radio analyst Carl Banks is telling it like it is. He dressed the Giants down for their performance in the last minutes of Sunday's loss to Seattle is a way most analysts would never do.

Sometimes you just can't hide the truth. ?The Giants simply played some dumb football in the red zone with the game on the line. Instead of taking the game back from Seattle, they pissed it away by throwing an ill-advised pass instead of just running the ball... From Bob Raissman of the Daily News:

(Bob) Papa, the Giants/WFAN Radio Network play-by-play man, scolded Manning for "forcing the ball into traffic." Banks, the Giants radio analyst, had every right to do what 98% of these analysts do - kiss their own tuchis before going into I-told-you-so mode.

The Giants were not ahead on the scoreboard in their game vs Seattle until late in the fourth quarter yesterday, but it was a lead that wouldn't last very long.

With 2:45 to play, Seattle had the ball on the Giants' 27. On second-and-ten Osi Umenyiora jumped offsides, to the degree that officials normally blow the whistle, but this time they didn't. The Seahawks kept playing. The Giants didn't - and Charlie Whitehurst, Seattle's backup QB - found rookie WR Doug Baldwin all alone for the game-winning score. The Giants insisted they heard a whistle. Even Justin Tuck, who was inactive due to injury, was out out on the field in protest. It was to no avail.

The Giants, down 29-25, stormed back. They drove effortlessly from their own 20 after the ensuing kickoff was ruled a touchback. QB Eli Manning hit RB Ahmad Bradshaw for 15 yards, then connected on back-to-back strikes to Victor Cruz for 41 and 19 yards respectfully. On first-and-ten from the Seahawks' 10, Eli went to the well again. He fired over the middle to Cruz at the five, but Cruz had slipped making his cut, and arrived late. He got his left hand on the pass, but could not reel it in. The bobbled ball ended up in the chest of Seattle DB Brandon Browner, who took it 94 yards the other way for a TD, nailing the game shut for Seattle.

Another home loss. Another game that has left us at a loss for words, too.

The heavily-favored Blue stumbled and fell to an inferior opponent on a summer-like afternoon in the NY Metro Area. There is no excuse. Everyone is to blame.

The Giants were handed a win by the young Seahawks, and appeared to have taken it, then let it slip away...

The Giants lost an up and down game to the Seahawks by a score of 36 to 25.

There is no way the team that Seattle put on the field should have been able to compete with this Giants team, but they beat?them?up and down the field, even after their starting quarterback left the game. The Giants were lucky to be in this game, and almost stole it with a late touchdown drive, but false starts in the red zone (at home! did Seattle bring their 12th man with them?) and turnovers were their undoing.

They fall to 3-2, but with the way their schedule breaks down, this was almost a must-win game. A performance like this against a team as bad as the Seahawks makes it hard to have any confidence in this team.

Updating live...

- First drive of the second half was like much of the first half. A holding call and then a sack buried the Giants near their own end zone and ended any chance of stringing together a successful drive.

- A Kiwi sighting! The defense holds again, the big play being a Mathias Kiwanuka sack.

- I love how Ed Hochuli starts his first down calls with his hand in a fist. If any referee/ weightlifter could get away with it, it's Hochuli.

- Another fumble, this time by Michael Robinson. ?This one really bailed out the Giants defense. The secondary is being ripped apart by Tavaris Jackson, and Marshawn Lynch is in beast mode. Talent-wise, this game is a mismatch but the Giants are not executing on offense or defense right now, and are lucky to be down by seven.

- The defense was much better on that drive, with a seven yard Jason Pierre Paul sack being the big play. With under four minutes left in the half, perhaps the offense will go into hurry-up mode, where it has been successful this season.

- With Jacobs inactive, over/under 2.5 touches for Da'Rel Scott?

- Seattle going in hurry-up mode. ?I don't expect to see any fake injuries this time, but it'll be an interesting test for the defense.

- The early results are in, and the Giants did not pass the initial test, as the Seahawks offense cut right through the defense and scored on a Ben Obomanu touchdown reception, their first first quarter score of the year. The drive was extended by a "hit to a defenseless receiver" call against Kenny Phillips on Zach Miller.

The 1-3 Seattle Seahawks are in New Jersey this afternoon to face the 3-1 New York Giants. The Seahawks, led by safety Earl Thomas (above) are coming off a tough home loss to Atlanta in which QB Tavaris Jackson threw for 319 yards. Last week, the Giants put together a 4th quarter rally to nip the Cardinals in Arizona, 31-27.

from our esteemed colleague and friend Paul Dottino of WFAN..his three keys to tomorrow's game vs Seattle...

The Giants already have gone through an emotional roller coaster this season and are coming off two dramatic come-from-behind victories. So where do they go from here?

The lowly Seattle Seahawks (1-3) are coming to town Sunday and the Giants need to bring their ?A? game to the table ? if for no other reason than it?s important for Tom Coughlin?s team to establish what they want to be. Sure, there?s a chance their ?C? game would be good enough to beat another inferior opponent, but they cannot think that way.

The over/under for tomorrow's Giants-Seahawks game is 43 1/2. According to data provided by Covers.com, the total score of this game is very likely to exceed that number. In the last seven games these teams faced each other, the over was breached in five of them.

Here are some matchups to key on in tomorrow's game....from Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com:

Seahawks DEs Chris Clemons and Raheem Brock vs Eli Manning: This is actually the Seahawks? entire defense vs. Manning, who is on a roll with a 105.6 passer rating and eight TD passes compared to two interceptions. In his past two games against the Seahawks, Manning has been even better ? with a 130.5 rating while completing 40 of 57 passes for 557 yards with five TDs and no interceptions. The best way to disrupt the Giants? 13th-ranked passing game is to disrupt Manning. That, of course, starts with Clemons and Brock being able to pressure the Giants? QB off the edges. Neither had a sack last week, and that needs to change this week.

Seahawks LT Russell Okung vs. Giants DE Osi Umenyiora: Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson has not been sacked in the past six quarters, after being sacked 14 times in the first 2? games. Umenyiora returned last week after sitting out the first three games with a knee injury, and he had two sacks and a forced fumble. The Seahawks? passing game is visibly ? and statistically ? better when the line keeps Jackson ?clean,? but Okung will have his hands full in trying to get that done on Sunday.

Paul Burke of Ultimate NYG posted an interview with the Seahawk Addicts today....

Seahawks were 1-7 on the road last year, this year they are 0-2. What are the reasons for poor performance away from home?

This one is a touchy subject for most Seattle fans, but the problem for the last several seasons has been that the Seahawks have not been a good team. By 2008, the players who took the team to the Super Bowl back in '05 were mostly gone or old and ineffective, and (now ex-)general manager Tim Ruskell failed to re-stock the team with talent. Really what people should be asking isn't why the team lost so many games on the road, but how did they manage to win so many games at home? (Answer: they've got one of the best home field advantages in the NFL.)

Something to chew on while waiting for tomorrow...

Eli Manning has been sacked 11 times in the first four games of the 2011 season. He is holding onto the football longer rather than rushing his throws or forcing the ball into tight spots. He has only been intercepted twice.

Last season, Eli was sacked a league low 16 times, but threw a league-high 25 interceptions. ?At the current rate, those numbers are projected to be 44 and 8.

The Giants are suffering some nagging injuries and face an opponent this week that can certainly exploit them. Can you say 'trap game'? The Giants can, and are very aware that this Seahawks team can steal a win from them this Sunday.

The Seahawks can run the football with Marshawn Lynch and QB Tavaris Jackson. Lynch is averaging only 3.1 yards per carry this season, but he is still dangerous. Jackson has the ability to avoid the rush and scramble for yards.

On defense, they are committed to stopping the run, jamming the box with eight or more bodies. The Giants have had difficulty running the football thus far this season and will be without Brandon Jacobs on Sunday.

Eli Manning:

He?s hot right now, with six touchowns and no interceptions in his last two games.? The Seahawks only have five sacks and two interceptions, so Eli won?t face a lot of pressure, and even though they?ve only allowed three passing touchdowns, opposing quarterbacks are completing almost 70% of their passes.

In 12-team leagues, there?s a good chance you drafted him as your backup, but unless you have Rodgers, Brady or Brees, or a handful of other elite options, you should be rolling with Eli.

from The Olympian:

The Giants have had their way with the Seattle Seahawks the past few seasons, crunching them twice, but some are warning the winds of change may be-a blowin'....from John Boyle of the Kitsap Sun:

Coaches like to say that past results have no bearing on the next game. The Seahawks certainly hope that holds true Sunday.

Against the New York Giants last season, Seattle fell behind 35-0 at halftime on the way to 41-7 home loss. In 2008, the Seahawks lost 44-6 in New York. Both games rank amongst the most lopsided losses in franchise history.

1. Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch is overrated. If it weren't for his ridiculous touchdown run (and some poor Saints tackling) in the 2010 NFC playoffs, most people would not remember what team he was on. In 16 games with the Seahawks, he is averaging a measly 3.4 yards per carry behind an offensive line that doesn't do him many favors. But you can't take any opponent for granted in the NFL, especially after getting torched for 138 yards and three touchdowns by Beanie Wells.

If Lynch even approaches those numbers, something has gone terribly wrong. Still, the Seahawks are so barren offensively that the Giants need to focus on shoring up their run defense and locking Lynch down. Force Tavaris Jackson to throw the football and good things will happen.

from FOX Sports via the AP:

The Giants are brimming with confidence, and will play eight of their final 12 games at MetLife Stadium, including one as the road team against the New York Jets. The home field should be an advantage Sunday against a Seahawks team that has dropped nine straight in the Eastern time zone since a 28-24 win over Philadelphia on Dec. 2, 2007.

Seattle (1-3) last visited New Jersey in a 44-6 loss in 2008, when Manning completed 19 of 25 passes for 267 yards and two scores. He went 21 of 32 for 290 yards, three TDs and no interceptions in last year's 41-7 rout for the Giants.

Yesterday the media had access to Seahawks' coach Pete Carroll and RB/KR Leon Washington (the former Jet) as well as some of the usual suspects in the Giants' locker room...

Carroll on his reaction to Terrell Thomas' injury:

"It broke our hearts. We are so close to those guys. As you can imagine, finding those guys when they are juniors in high school and taking them all the way through their careers, you get connected to those guys. That sent a big shock wave to all the networks of the SC guys involved in ball still. We sent a message out to him letting him know we still love him and that he will be back. You hate to see your guys get hurt."

from Danny O'Neil of The Seattle Times:

"....the Giants have been a measuring stick for better and for worse over the past six seasons. Seattle beat New York twice in the span of 10 months, a pair of regular-season victories sandwiched around the Super Bowl appearance, establishing the high-water mark of the franchise?s greatest success. The Giants helped illuminate the floor, as well, with Seattle suffering two lopsided losses over the past three years to show how far this franchise had fallen.

Seattle will travel across the country this week, hoping to summon some momentum as it faces a Giants team that is riding a three-game winning streak.

Yesterday the Giants fielded only 2 offensive linemen in their normal slots. While Kareem McKenzie and Chris Snee stayed put on the right, the left saw Rich Seubert at C, David Diehl at LG, and Shawn Andrews debuting at LT.

The results speak for itself as New York stomped Seattle in a 41-7 rout. However, as mentioned earlier this evening, the victory had casualties. Both Diehl and Adam Koets (who spelled Seubert multiple times at C), suffered injuries. While the severity of the injuries are still unknown, the theme will likely be recurring in the near future.

Shaun O'Hara is not getting any younger or healthier. A Pro Bowler, team leader, and local product, O'hara has been a key member of the organization since arriving in 2005. Now, he is out indefinitely with a similar injury to the one that ended Strahan's 2006 campaign prematurely. It is not likely that the Giants will continue to pay out a Pro Bowler's salary in 2011 for an ailing player. Moving to the left, Seubert has enjoyed a resurgence so far this season. After experiencing a sharp drop off in his level of play last year, the longest tenured Giant has helped Ahmad Bradshaw become one of the top backs in the league. That said, he too is not getting any younger. Entering the NFL in 2001, Seubert missed a season in a half when he broke his leg during a 2003 showdown with Philadelphia. Seubert reentered the starting lineup in 2007 and has been a stalwart since.
