New York Giants Up Big On Seattle Seahawks After First Quarter, 21-0

The first quarter went about as expected for the Seahawks, as the offense couldn’t move the ball and the Giants dominated the Seahawks’ defense, jumping out to an early 21-0 lead. Eli Manning threw for 109 yards and a touchdown, connecting with Hakeem Nicks on a 46-yard touchdown pass. Ahmad Bradshaw added 19 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

The Seahawks were completely ineffective early, failing to gain a first down on the first three possessions of the game. Charlie Whitehurst was 3-7 for three yards, missing badly on more than a few throws. Marshawn Lynch added 11 yards on four carries.

Leon Washington fumbled a kickoff midway through the first, leading to another Giants score. Special teams, offense and defense have all been awful, putting the Seahawks in a hole that will be difficult to climb out of and silencing the typically raucous Qwest Field crowd.
