Seahawks Beat Giants 36-25

The Seahawks were double digit road underdogs this week but went into The New Meadowlands Stadium and stole away an improbable victory, 36-25, to put them at 2-3 heading into their bye week. It was a wild one, with several late-game lead changes and 8 total turnovers by both teams, 3 for the Seahawks and 5 costly ones by the Giants.

The Game went into halftime tied at 14, but the Seahawks struck first in the 2nd half with a big safety that put them in the lead. Seahawks starting QB Tarvaris Jackson went out with nine minutes left in the 3rd quarter and backup Charlie Whitehurst appeared in relief. After a few shaky series, with the score waffling between a Seahawks and Giants lead and/or tie, Whitehurst and the Seahawks' offense clicked when it needed to, and Charlie hit Doug Baldwin for 27 yards and a touchdown for the go-ahead score. That made it 29-25 with 2:45 left in the 4th quarter, and proved to be the decisive score. Brandon Browner sealed the victory with an interception on the ensuing drive at the Seahawks 3 or 4 yard line and took it to the house. 

Big win for the Seahawks, on the East Coast, against a formerly 3-1 team, as big underdogs.

The game proved costly for the Seahawks, with Tarvaris Jackson, Zach Miller, Leroy Hill, Russell Okung, and John Moffitt all leaving with various injuries. Early indications of Jackson's injury point to a pectoral pull, but no timeframe for his return has been reported as of yet.
