The New York Giants have lost their last three games and they have slipped to third place in the NFC East. The Giants offense is averaging 22.2 points and 345.9 yards and they are minus one in turnover ratio. Eli Manning has completed 62.5 percent of his passes with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions and he has been sacked 16 times. Andre Williams has taken over as the main running back and he us averaging just 3.0 yards per carry with three touchdowns and Rueben Randle is the Giants leading receiver with 38 catches and two touchdowns. The Giants defense allows 26.1 points and 391.8 yards per game with 14 QB sacks. Jacquian Williams has 69 tackles, Jameel McClain has 47 tackles, and Antrel Rolle has 43 tackles. The Giants were tough to figure out earlier this season but right now they appear to be outmanned by the better teams.
Seattle is 18-8 against the spread against the NFC, 22-10 against the spread in their last 32 home games, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four games. New York is 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 road games, 1-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 27-13-1 against the spread in their last 41 road games against a team with a winning home record. The favorite has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
The Giants are without some of their key players and they need everyone if they want to contend with Seattle and I don’t see them hanging with the Seahawks here.
