Seahawks Crush Giants with Stellar Defense on Monday Night - https://edition.cnn.com/

In a commanding performance, the Seattle Seahawks outplayed the New York Giants, sealing a 24-3 victory at the MetLife Stadium this Monday. The foundation of this win was the Seahawks’ impenetrable defense.

Record-Breaking Defense

Seattle’s defense matched their franchise record, executing 11 sacks throughout the game. This includes a relentless assault on Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, with 10 sacks. Linebacker Bobby Wagner stood out with 17 tackles and two sacks. Jordyn Brooks, Devon Witherspoon, and Uchenna Nwosu contributed two sacks each.

But the most thrilling moment came from rookie cornerback Witherspoon. He intercepted Jones, racing 97 yards for a touchdown and transforming a potentially tight game into a Seahawks’ celebration.

Coach Pete Carroll exclaimed, “We’re just getting rolling,” highlighting their improved performance in recent weeks.

Praising Witherspoon, Carroll stated, “This is why we took him. He’s an explosive, dynamic player.”

Season’s Standings and Updates

The Seahawks are currently at a comfortable 3-1 before their Week 5 bye. In stark contrast, the Giants, with a 1-3 score, have only led for a mere 19 seconds in all their season’s games.

However, Seattle’s victory was slightly overshadowed by the injury of safety Jamal Adams, who suffered a concussion early in the match. Carroll, however, remains optimistic about his speedy recovery.

Seattle’s offense had its moments, with Geno Smith connecting with DK Metcalf for a touchdown and later setting the stage for Kenneth Walker III’s touchdown.

Despite their defense doing “a lot of good things,” Giants’ coach Brian Daboll acknowledged their struggle on offense and the need for improvement.

What’s Next?

While the Giants look forward to away games against the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills, the Seahawks prepare to face off against the Cincinnati Bengals on October 15.
