What a weird, sloppy game of football. The Seahawks, in typical Seahawks fashion, are turning what should be a blowout at half and making it a close game, thanks to three untimely turnovers, including two fumbles within the 10 yard line. The Giants have turned the ball over twice, and should have three times when the Leroy Hill jumped on an Eli Manning fumble but wasn't able to secure the football.
The two teams are tied at half 14-14, and the rate both teams are coughing up the football, it looks like a concerted effort to lose by both sides.
Here are the halftime stats:
Tarvaris Jackson is 14 for 21 with 164 yards passing, one touchdown and one interception. Marshawn Lynch has five carries for 68 yards and a touchdown, but like I said above, fumbled at about the Giants' five yard line. Ben Obomanu leads the Seahawks with 6 receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown.
On the other side of the ball, Eli Manning is 10 for 15 with 147 yards passing, two touchdowns and one interception. Hakeem Nicks has three catches for 49 yards and a touchdown.
If the Seahawks have a chance to pull off the road upset, they will have to take care of the football. Three turnovers in one half is seriously unacceptable.
