Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Tuesday, October 3 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle dominates the New York Giants on the road on Monday Night Football.
The Seahawks climbed to 3-1 on Monday, dominating the New York Giants 24-3 on the road for their third-consecutive victory. Neither injuries on both sides of the ball nor the opposing crowd could stop Seattle, as the Seahawks climbed to 6-0 at MetLife Stadium, a perfect mark that includes their Super Bowl XLVIII win over the Denver Broncos.
Offensively, the Seahawks were led by running back Kenneth Walker III, who rushed for his fifth touchdown in three games, along with 79 rushing yards on 17 attempts. But the story of the game was Seattle's defense, tying a franchise-record of 11 sacks.
Linebackers Bobby Wagner, Jordyn Brooks and Uchenna Nwosu and cornerback Devon Witherspoon each recorded two sacks. Witherspoon became the only defensive back in league history to record at least two sacks and return an interception for a touchdown.
Seattle will take a break during its three-game win streak thanks to a Week 5 bye, giving the Seahawks a chance to heal up before heading to Cincinnati to face the Bengals in Week 6.
