Things To Look For

Yes, the Giants are down quite a few key players these days. But that didn’t seem to make a difference last week as they stunned the Broncos in Denver. Ben McAdoo’s club has cranked up the ground game the past two weeks and the Seahawks are struggling to stop teams from running the ball these days. Pete Carroll’s defense is 26th in the league in rushing defense, surrendering 127.2 yards per game on the ground. Don’t be surprised if the Giants shorten this game via unsung running back Orleans Darkwa and pull off a second straight victory.
