Giants 41, Seahawks 7: Seattle No Match For New York

Total domination! That is the only way to describe Sunday's 41-7 victory by the New York Giants over the Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field in Seattle. The Giants (6-2) dominated Seattle (4-4) pretty much every way possible.

  • The Giants outgained the Seahawks, 497 yards to 162.
  • The Giants got 30 first downs to Seattle's 8.
  • The Giants held the ball for an astounding 42:34 to Seattle's 17:26.
  • The Giants ran 79 plays to Seattle's 37.

Eli Manning threw three touchdowns and Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for two scores for the Giants. It was New York's fifth straight win and first in Seattle since 1981.

Manning ended with 290 yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-32 efficiency for a 125.8 quarterback rating. He tossed TDs to Steve Smith, Kevin Boss and Hakeem Nicks, who caught six balls for 128 yards in the lopsided victory. Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw rushed for 78 and 57 yards, respectively. D.J. Ware rushed for 66 yards on 13 carries, all coming in a fourth-quarter drive that saw the Giants hold the ball for the final 13:34 of the game.

Charlie Whitehurst, in his first career start in place of an injured Matt Hasselbeck, completed 12-of-23 passes for 113 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for Seattle, a quarterback rating of 44.3. The Seahawks were coming off a 33-3 drubbing at the hands of the Oakland Raiders and have now been outscored 74-10 in the last two weeks.

The Giants led 21-0 after one quarter and 35-0 at halftime. They tacked on a pair of Lawrence Tynes field goals in the second half.
