The Seattle Seahawks and the New York Giants duke it out from MetLife Stadium in week 7 NFL action on Sunday afternoon.
The Seattle Seahawks come into this one well rested after their bye week, following a 16-10 victory over the Rams in week 5, giving the ‘Hawks their 2nd straight win. Russell Wilson led the team with 198 passing yards, a touchdown and an interception, while the Seahawks’ ground attack combined for just 62 rushing yards on 25 carries. Jimmy Graham led the team with 6 receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown, while Doug Baldwin put up 37 receiving yards of his own. J.D. McKissic and Paul Richardson followed right behind, with both logging 3 receptions and 36 and 35 receiving yards respectively. Deuces were wild for the Seahawks defense, combining for 2 sacks, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles, one of which they recovered in the win, despite giving up 375 yards of total offense in the win.
The New York Giants will try to build on their first victory of the season, what many would call an upset in the form of a 23-10 victory over the Denver Broncos on week 6’s edition of Sunday Night Football. Eli Manning threw for 128 yards and a touchdown on 11 of 19 passing, while Orleans Darkwa led the Giants’ ground attack with 21 carries for 117 yards. Evan Engram was the only Giant to have more than 2 receptions in the win, leading the team with 5 catches for 82 yards and the team’s lone offensive touchdown in the win. Janoris Jenkins led the way for the Giants’ defense with a 43-yard pick-six, while Jason Pierre-Paul logged 3 sacks as New York still gave up 412 yards of total offense to the Broncos.
Seattle is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in October while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the NFC. New York is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a winning road record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings between these two teams.
I’ll be the first to admit I thought the Giants had no chance against Denver but I was proved wrong, and on the road no less. However, they have to play two strong defenses back-to-back and the favorite has had the bulk of the success between these two. Seattle’s offense has been nothing to write home about as of late, but I think they’re strong enough defensively to get some points on the board and keep the Giants down enough to get a road win and a cover by a touchdown here.
