Seattle Seahawks won 24-7 against New York Giants despite poor start on offence. The win marked the third win of the season in which they started poorly.
Seahawks registered the similar win against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2, the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4, and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5. The offence could not start well, however, they found momentum in second half.
The poor start on offence proved to be the winning formula at the MetLife Stadium. The defense played brilliantly to carry them through to the second half.
Seahawks were trailing 7-3 at the half time. When it came to rush, they led 222 yards to 42 through two quarters. Dropped passes, red zone struggles, and penalties were reasons for the Seahawks being out of the end zone in the first two quarters. However, they were rotating the ball very well.
Seahawks finished with 425 yards run on offense at the end of the second quarter.
“We came out here to win a ballgame and try to play some good football,” coach Pete Carroll said. “It just took us a while to put it all together.”
With this win, the Seahawks’ all time win-loss record is 5-0 at MetLife Stadium. Moreover, the combined score is 153-57.
Seattle’s defense was tough again, giving its offense an opportunity to score points. They could hold the Giants to 177 yards, 2.7 yards per carry, and 2 of 12 on third down. It gave an excellent signal for a run defense to continue to perform well in the matches coming their way.
