Need to know: The Seahawks ran for 350 yards, the most allowed by the Giants since 1978, as Lynch went over 100 yards for the first time since the opener. Seattle QB Russell Wilson ran for 107 yards. The Giants defense allowed more than 400 total yards (511) for the fourth game in a row.
With the score tied at 17 late in the third quarter, Seattle capitalized after Eli Manning threw his first interception since week 4 (177 attempts). The Seahawks drove 58 yards in seven plays for a go-ahead touchdown by Lynch early in the fourth quarter. Odell Beckham Jr., who was covered by Richard Sherman in the end zone, tipped the ball into the hands of Earl Thomas who returned it to the Seattle 43.
Manning was 29 for 44 for 283 yards with a TD and an interception; Beckham had seven catches for 108 yards. The Giants had just 54 yards on the ground.
The Giants had three takeaways (two interceptions, one fumble recovery) but probably should have had one more. Seattle recovered two its own fumble on the drive for its second of three fourth-quarter TDs.
The Giants caught a break in the third quarter, which kept Lynch from recording a fifth touchdown. The Giants the Seahawks to a field goal after an apparent touchdown by Lynch was nullified because officials blew the whistle when Lynch's helmet fell off.
The Giants' Peyton Hillis left in the first quarter with a concussion. . . Tight end Daniel Fells left with a neck burner.
Update, 9:56 p.m.: The Giants confirmed multiple media reports that running back Michael Cox fractured the lower part of his left leg.
What's Next: The Giants host San Francisco next Sunday at 1 p.m. at MetLife Stadium.
Not much to say. Seattle just simply trampled all over the Giants Sunday afternoon. It was an ugly game for the rush defense.
The effort was there. The Giants played as physical as they possibly could have in the trenches, but they were vastly overmatched by the defending Super Bowl champs. They missed having a healthy Cullen Jenkins today (limited, calf) and they have been missing LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) all year. Their backups aren't cutting it.
Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch battered the Giants' front seven and QB Russell Wilson fooled them with the same bootleg run to the point of embarrassment.
The bright spots were few. They took shots down the field in the passing game. WR Odell Beckham Jr. logged another fine performance. The Giants did an outstanding job covering the Seahawks' WRs considering their secondary is a mess. They intercepted Wilson twice and forced three fumbles, but only recovered one.
Still, 17 points rarely gets you a W in this league. Especially in a place like Seattle. The game was entertaining nonetheless, but the rest of the season may not be.
The Giants continue to play with pride for Tom Coughlin which is encouraging, but like most of their seasons during his tenure, they just keep running out of healthy bodies.
