The Seahawks won their third straight game on Sunday, beating the New York Giants 27-13 to improve to 5-3 to stay on top of the NFC West. In addition to the final score, here are 12 numbers that help tell the story of Sunday's win:


Average yards per carry gained by Saquon Barkley, who finished with 53 yards on 20 carries, a season-low yardage total and average for the Giants back, who came into the game averaging more than 100 yards per game.


First downs for the Giants in the first quarter, who had just three in the first half.


Points scored by the Giants, a season-low for a team that came into the game with a 6-1 record. 


Points allowed by the Seahawks over the past three games, a big turn for a team that allowed 84 points in the two games prior to the current three-game winning streak.


Sacks recorded by Seattle's defense, which now has 14 sacks in the past three games after recording eight in the first five games.


Sacks by Uchenna Nwosu on Sunday, giving him a team-leading 5.0 in eight games. That matches a career-high for Nwosu, who had 5.0 last season for the Chargers.


Touchdown passes thrown by Geno Smith after he had two more on Sunday, already matching the career high he set in 14 games in 2014.


Turnovers forced by Seattle—both on special teams—making Sunday's game the seventh this season out of eight total in which the Seahawks have multiple takeaways. 

7 & 3

Tackles and passes defensed recorded by cornerback Mike Jackson, both numbers representing career highs.


Touchdowns scored by Kenneth Walker III in the past four games after he scored on a 16-yard run to help clinch the win on Sunday.


Combined receptions, including a pair of touchdowns, for DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, who were both playing through injuries that had their availability in question heading into game day.


Receptions for Marquise Goodwin in the past two games after he had six in the previous six games.
