Giants vs. Seahawks: Expert picks, predictions not good for Giants

Giants vs. Seahawks: Expert picks, predictions not good for Giants

Seahawks choice of overwhelming majority If experts from around the Inter-Google are correct, the New York Giants will be entering their bye week with a 1-6 record. Few appear to be giving the Giants a chance to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Let’s look at some of the predictions. Pro Football Talk MDS’s take: The Giants showed their first signs of life in beating the Broncos on Sunday, but the Seahawks aren’t going to let them make it two in a row. MDS’s pick: Seahawks 20, Giants 10. Florio’s take: Hopefully the fumes of that first win for the Giants will last a while. The...

Giants vs. Seahawks injury report: Weston Richburg, Olivier Vernon out; Sterling Shepard questionable

Giants vs. Seahawks injury report: Weston Richburg, Olivier Vernon out; Sterling Shepard questionable

The Giants could be getting a weapon back on offense Though they don’t practice fully on Fridays, the New York Giants have released their injury report. Some of their best players have already been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Giants have ruled out: DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) OC Weston Richburg (concussion) OLB Jonathan Casillas (neck) RB Paul Perkins (ribs) LB Calvin Munson (quad) Vernon will miss his third straight game, which is particularly significant considering the Giants placed backup DE Romeo Okwara on injured reserve this week. That likely...

Seahawks at Giants, Week 7: When the Seahawks have the ball

Seahawks at Giants, Week 7: When the Seahawks have the ball

How does the Giants’ defense match up with the Seattle offense? A first win was not expected in Denver when the Giants upset the Broncos last Sunday night. A win is probably not expected against against the Seattle Seahawks, but the offense has not been as good as it has been in years past. The Seahawks are going through a few injuries on the offensive side of the ball and they’re still trying to figure out what works for them. They’ve found a few things so far. Here’s what to look for on Sunday when the Seahawks have the ball. By the numbers Giants’ defense Rushing Yards: 123.5...

Seahawks-Giants preview: Seattle returns from their bye seeking a third straight win

Seahawks-Giants preview: Seattle returns from their bye seeking a third straight win

The Seattle Seahawks return from their bye week and head to the site of their greatest triumph, taking on the 1-5 New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The paltry Giants are coming off of their first win, a primetime victory in Denver against the Broncos. It was a game that represented an identity shift for New York’s offense, and they’ll now get the opportunity to build upon it against the 3-2 Seahawks. Crucially, Seattle will be aiming to win their third game in a row before returning home for a two-game home-stand. The Giants’ progress last Sunday was encouraging, but they...

Giants vs. Seahawks: Five things to watch

Giants vs. Seahawks: Five things to watch

Which version of the Giants is going to show up? Will the New York Giants head into the bye at 2-5, and feeling like they have a pulse in the fight for a playoff spot even though history is stacked against them? Or, will they be 1-6 and knowing that the final nine games they play will be basically meaningless? That, of course, depends what happens Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Here are five things to watch in that contest. Can the Giants continue to run it? The Giants have run the ball 57 times for an even 300 yards the past two weeks, 5.3 yards per attempt. “We really don’t...

New York Giants news, 10/20: Players know a win Sunday “would be huge”

New York Giants news, 10/20: Players know a win Sunday “would be huge”

Big Blue seeks momentum heading into bye History is stacked against the 1-5 New York Giants, with no NFL team ever having made the playoffs after losing their first five games. They know that to have any chance to re-write that history, they have to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. That would send the Giants into their bye week with a little momentum, and some optimism. “It would be huge for us. Winning the last two games going into the bye, everyone starts getting their bodies feeling right and we come back and try to make a run. Try to do something,” said offensive lineman Justin...
Mike Sullivan calls the plays, passes the praise

Mike Sullivan calls the plays, passes the praise

Offensive coordinator doesn’t want any credit for Sunday’s victory Mike Sullivan was the offensive play-caller for the New York Giants Sunday for the first time in his two seasons with the title of offensive coordinator. The Giants, as you know, won for the first time this season. On Thursday, though, Sullivan wasn’t interested in taking any credit. He was, instead, passing it around. “It was a great night for the organization. So proud of the players and appreciative of their efforts and buying into the plan,” Sullivan said. “The assistant coaches did a great job and after all...

Giants’ injury report: Olivier Vernon sits out practice

That makes DE unlikely to play vs. Seattle Defensive end Olivier Vernon did not practice on Thursday, casting doubt on the possibility that he could return to the New York Giants’ lineup Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Vernon has missed the last two games with an ankle injury. He practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday, but did not practice at all Thursday. The Giants alsp placed romeo Okwara on IR this week, so their depth at defensive end is being tested. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who missed last week’s game with an ankle injury, was limited for the second straight day....

Should the New York Giants draft Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield? Scot McCloughan would

Should the New York Giants draft Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield? Scot McCloughan would

Former GM thinks Mayfield is a shorter Brett Favre The New York Giants have already admitted that they are thinking about life after Eli Manning. They said as much when they drafted Davis Webb in the third round of the 2017 draft. But if there is a "silver lining" to their 1-5 start to the season, it is that they may have a rare chance to draft one of the top quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft without having to trade up. If the season ended today, the Giants would be drafting third overall and could have their pick of the QBs. As it stands now, the top three quarterbacks in the draft are...

Can Orleans Darkwa, Giants’ running game keep this up?

Will newfound success last, or be fleeting? Orleans Darkwa has waited four years for the feeling he had when he got out of bed Monday morning. “It feels good to get that workload,” said Darkwa after setting career highs in carries (21) and yards (117) in Sunday night’s 23-10 victory over the Denver Broncos. “I woke up that next morning a little sore. Gotta like it. I like that feeling.” The Giants have gotta like the work the 25-year-old fourth-year running back has done for them this season. In limited opportunities the past couple of seasons, Darkwa has given glimpses of what...

Giants vs. Seahawks: Can the Giants build on their offensive performance in Denver?

Giants vs. Seahawks: Can the Giants build on their offensive performance in Denver?

Matching up the Giants’ offense and the Seattle defense The New York Giants stunned with their victory over the Denver Broncos in week six. Even when first looking at the Giants’ schedule in the offseason, when we still expected the offense to be dynamic — and have Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard — that game looked like a tough one that would come down to the wire. Considering how the offense played through the first five weeks of the season, nobody expected the Giants to come out and control the game from beginning to end, never once trailing. But even more shocking was how...

Seahawks are 3-2, but have many of the same questions the Giants have

Field Gulls fills us in on Sunday’s opponent The 3-2 Seattle Seahawks come to MetLife Stadium Sunday to face the New York Giants. Let’s learn more about the Seahawks from Kenneth Arthur of Field Gulls in this week’s “Five Questions” segment. Ed: Giants fans love to complain about how bad the team's offensive line. But, we keep hearing that Seattle's is worse. What is the state of Seattle offensive line, and what is going on there? Kenneth: Center Justin Britt is good. A converted tackle-slash-converted-guard really took to the center position and is somewhere on the cusp of the...
New York Giants news, 10/19: “Not much different” for Manning with Sullivan calling plays

New York Giants news, 10/19: “Not much different” for Manning with Sullivan calling plays

Let’s check your Thursday morning headlines New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said Wednesday that “it’s not that much different” for him having offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan call the plays instead of head coach Ben McAdoo. “He calls them in practice every day, he has for the year, during training camp, during practices. So, I’m used to hearing them in the ear, it’s just his rhythm of how he’s calling things,” Manning said. “We kind of have a lot of things scoped out, so you kind of know what plays are coming.” Manning threw only 19 times on Sunday against...
“Crazy” Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie takes responsibility

“Crazy” Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie takes responsibility

Cornerback is happy to be back with Giants Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is back with the New York Giants after a one-game suspension, and on Wednesday the veteran corner took responsibility for the situation. “I’m dramatic, man. I’m crazy. I can’t help that. I do stuff over the top, man,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “I apologized. I handled it wrong, but I’m good, baby. I’m back, baby, that’s all that matters.” The timeline of events that led to the suspension, and what happened afterward, are still a bit fuzzy. DRC explained it this way: “Coach called me up and he said...
Shocker! NFL players think Giants’ QB Eli Manning is overrated

Shocker! NFL players think Giants’ QB Eli Manning is overrated

Like that would have been hard to predict I will bet you have never heard this one before. NFL players think Eli Manning of the New York Giants is the most overrated quarterback in the league. At least, 14 percent of the 155 players ESPN surveyed believe Manning is the league’s most overrated signal-caller. That, I guess, makes them like non-Giants fans everywhere. And, yes, plenty of Giants fans themselves. ESPN says Manning “has won two Super Bowl championships but ranks No. 30 in Total Quarterback Rating (QBR) in the five seasons since he turned 31 years old. The Giants are 31-39...

The New York Giants have struggled to keep tight ends out of the end zone

The New York Giants have struggled to keep tight ends out of the end zone

No team spends more of its salary cap on the defensive side of the ball than the Seattle Seahawks, but the runners-up are the New York Giants, who went on a major spending spree in the 2016 offseason. The defense-heavy acquisitions were key to the Giants making the playoffs last season, but that unit has largely underperformed this season, ranking an uninspiring 22nd in DVOA. Perhaps spurred on by playing a mediocre offense last Sunday, the Giants were able to shut down the Denver Broncos and win 23-10, with Janoris Jenkins intercepting a Trevor Siemian pass and taking it back for a big...

Referee involved in controversial Patriots-Jets game gets assigned to Seahawks-Giants

Referee involved in controversial Patriots-Jets game gets assigned to Seahawks-Giants

Veteran NFL referee Tony Corrente has the rarity of getting to officiate in the same stadium for the second week in a row. Corrente and his crew have been assigned to this Sunday’s Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants matchup, one week after the controversial New England Patriots at New York Jets game. As a refresher, Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins originally was ruled to have scored a touchdown about midway through the 4th quarter, but when the play was reviewed, Seferian-Jenkins was seen clearly fumbling the ball, and Corrente announced to an irate Jets fanbase that Seferian-Jenkins...
