First Half Notes: Seahawks at Giants

Notes and observations from the first half of the Seahawks' Week 7 matchup against the New York Giants.

After the first half, the Seattle Seahawks trail the New York Giants 7-3 at MetLife Stadium. Here are some quick notes and observations after two quarters:

  • With starting left guard Luke Joeckel undergoing surgery during the bye week and being among the list of inactives, the Seahawks mixed in Ethan Pocic and Mark Glowinski to fill his spot. Pocic, the Seahawks' rookie second-round pick from LSU, started on the team's first offensive series, while the veteran Glowinski took over on the second. Pocic has remained in the game longer than Glowinski in the first half.
  • The Seahawks have also had a mix going at running back. Eddie Lacy has led the way on the ground by gaining 30 yards on nine carries, but Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic have also gotten snaps.
  • Seahawks center Justin Britt went down on the team's second offensive drive with an injury but eventually was able to return at the end of the series.
  • The only touchdown in the game came right after a Seahawks turnover. New York forced a Rawls fumble on Seattle's third drive and turned it into points on the ensuing drive, when two plays after the turnover Eli Manning found rookie tight end Evan Engram five yards out for a touchdown.
  • Doug Baldwin has been a bright spot for the Seahawks offensively in the first half. Baldwin has five catches for 56 yards.
  • The Seahawks have 15 first downs. The Giants have ran 18 offensive plays.
  • New York has recorded six quarterback hits on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who finished the half 15-of-23 for 171 yards passing.
  • Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett was shaken up after taking a hit on a pass play with under a minute to go in the half. After being down on the ground, Lockett was able to get up and walk off under his own power. He was back on the field two plays later to finish out the half.
