Seattle Seahawks: Big Win In The Meadowlands as the Hawks Defeat the Giants
The bye week appeared to have served the Hawk on Sunday afternoon as they traveled east to play the New York Giants. The Seahawks started off the game with a traditionally slow start, only able to put 3 points on the board in the first half. But in the second half, the Hawks stepped on the gas offensively and made some big plays in the endzone, which lead to their 24-7 victory.
As has been the story for this season, the defense was critical in securing a victory. The Giants finished the game with only 177 yards of total offense. While it’s true that they were without their best player Odell Beckham Jr (who’s missing a large part of the season with an injury), the Hawks discipline made them efficient in forcing 3rd downs.
Doug Baldwin has been a vocal leader on this squad for a few years ago, and on Sunday afternoon he proved himself once again. As the Seahawks often find themselves in troubling situations early on in games, Baldwin always seems to stand out and execute when big plays are needed. Sunday showed that if that Seahawks want more continued success on offense, then they might need to lean on Baldwin a pit more in the passing game.
The Hawks face off against the Houston Texans next Sunday at 1:05pm PDT on CBS. Go Hawks!
