Seahawks pitch a shutout at MetLife

d641ebdfe5315d935659638a05629f24 AP

If all goes according to plan for the Seahawks, they won’t play a game outside of Seattle after today’s 23-0 laugher over the Giants until they return to the stadium to play the AFC champion in the Super Bowl.

Their play on Sunday made that outcome feel like a good bet. The Seahawks totally overwhelmed the Giants offense, limiting them to 181 yards for the game and well less than that during any part of the game that was remotely competitive. Eli Manning threw five more interceptions, tying his career high of 25 interceptions for a season, and the Giants offensive line offered no resistance to the Seahawks pass rushers.

Give the Giants defense credit for not throwing in the towel when given so little help from their friends, but there wasn’t much they could do to make the result different on Sunday. Their stops and takeaways would be met with interceptions or three and outs and the punt coverage team let Golden Tate loose a couple of times, allowing to the Seahawks to grind their way to 327 yards and 23 points on short fields.

The opposition will be considerably stiffer than these Giants in the weeks to come, but the Seahawks didn’t do anything to make you question their spot as the favorites in the NFC heading into the playoffs. With one more win, they’ll have the home field advantage to go along with that.

    Maybe Coughlin should shut down Eli and get him ready for the offseason.

  2. thepftpoet says: Dec 15, 2013 4:25 PM

    Oh I get it… “Pitching” a shootout because Russell Wilson used to play baseball.

    Seattle fans probably don’t understand that joke.

    5 ints,pretty much out of the play offs.Elite right?

  4. seattlerogueburner says: Dec 15, 2013 4:26 PM

    Eli Manning was so upset about the loss that he threw his helmet in disgust. That too was intercepted.

    Lol, Manning lite!

  6. allidoiswin55 says: Dec 15, 2013 4:27 PM

    Too bad they can’t win on the road!!! Lol who has the best road record again?

  7. jshawaii22 says: Dec 15, 2013 4:28 PM

    …and the weather, unlike for poor Peyton, played no factor in the game. Wilson loves to play in cold weather and the team can practice in the same crap as the Meadowlands.

    This team is built for February and 10 degrees. Good Luck to Peyton or Brady against this defense.

    Wow that was a defensive shut out in every way. There is no question for the past 2 years who the best secondary in the NFL is because Seattle is # 1 pass defense minus two starters. The depth at pass rush is equally as scary.

    Malcom Smith played very well in the absence of KJ Wright and Bobby Wagner stepped his game up.
    The final two games at Century Link, I am confident Hawks wrap up the 1st seed. What a great year for Seattle.

    Eli Manning is downright awful. It’s baffling that he has two rings. Goes to show you that qb’s shouldn’t be considered great based on the number of super bowl rings they have.

  11. classyjacklambert says: Dec 15, 2013 4:33 PM

    Looks like Seattle is gonna be the regular season champs again! Congrats on that hawks!

  12. unbridledsexy says: Dec 15, 2013 4:34 PM

    The ny defense looked pretty alright. But it takes more then Tuck to take down my Hawks. The Cardinals and Rams games aren’t gimmies, though. They need to keep up the intensity.

    Changes need to be made plain and simple. It’s time to stop giving Jerry Reese credit for drafting so well. He’s missed on the last few drafts and fails to address needs on the team. Also get rid of both coordinators

  15. seahawksteven777 says: Dec 15, 2013 4:37 PM

    Home field and the division is a wrap for Seattle. No way they don’t win at least win one of those two home games.

  16. anicra says: Dec 15, 2013 4:38 PM

    First ever 6-2 or better road record in Seahawks history.

    Punt return yard record

    The lowest amount for a 14-game season was set in 1967, when Vince Lombardi’s Packers allowed only 22. Seattle thru 14 games – 19yards giving up.

    The record for a 16-game season is 49 yards, set by the 2008 Falcons. (So 30 yard margin ATM)

  17. dans761 says: Dec 15, 2013 4:40 PM

    Scary part is the Seahawks didn’t play all that well on offense. 2 of the 3 field goals should’ve been TD’s, the game could’ve been 40+ to zero if the offense was on it 100% today and Wilson stayed in the game. The only ones who beat the Seahawks is themselves. Team should be 14-0 if it weren’t for late game mistakes BUT 12-2 sounds pretty damn good to me!

    Giants offensive per Coach : PATHETIC ………………

  19. gmenfan1982 says: Dec 15, 2013 4:46 PM

    My giants have gotten unable to watch. Nothing can explain just exactly how awful this offense is.

  20. therealzeitgeist says: Dec 15, 2013 4:52 PM

    I bet most-watched re-run in NFC playoff team offices is Shehawks vs. Colts back in October.

  21. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 15, 2013 4:52 PM

    Game went about like I expected, Seabags start slowly, Giants fight (defense has been good all year, offense terrible), Eli decides he wants to challenge the best CB in the NFL and Maxwell matched him. Told you guys all week turnovers would be the reason the Giants would fall behind for good in the end. No one’s beating Seattle this year. And no, a couple of lucky special teams plays and a botched run defense to set up a last second FG in San Francisco don’t equate to “beating” them.

  22. slugbaitspace says: Dec 15, 2013 4:58 PM

    On a positive note for NY, they had more punt return yards against Seattle that any other team since the ‘hawks played the Panthers back in Week 1.

    4, if I recall correctly.

  23. ninersareyesterdaysnews says: Dec 15, 2013 5:05 PM

    That’s a defense that can win a championship. frisco loss was good for them. They looked refocused and about their business. That hail Mary at the end of the first had me scratching my head at Coughlin. Why undermine Eli’s already shaky confidence by sending him into the locker room with a pick?

  24. denverdude7 says: Dec 15, 2013 5:05 PM

    The Giants have quit on themselves.

    A sad statement for a once proud team.

    Time to grow a backbone guys.

    when harvin comes back he will have no leverage. if harvin acts up he’ll be on the bench so fast it will make his head spin.

    Giants defense has been damn good all year, even without a healthy Pierre-Paul, only a half season of real NFL level play by Tuck, and massive injuries on the back end. The offense is so putrid and puts them in bad situations 5-6 times every week, that the PPG stats skew the line on them. But anyone who watches the Giants defense knows it’s good. Just that as good as it is, the offense is THAT BAD. It’s stale. you don’t even have to watch film on the Giants anymore. Everyone knows what’s coming, even casual fans who haven’t watched an entire Giants game since last season know what’s coming 90% of the time.

    Fewell has done well considering the only time he’s had a healthy unit was December 2011-Feburary 2012 (and shut down all of the best offenses in the NFL with it).

    I hate the Giants.

    But I can’t wait for the Shehawks to get their mouths shut by a real team in the playoffs this year.

  40. justintuckrule says: Dec 15, 2013 6:43 PM

    Honestly…I wasn’t all that impressed with Seattle. From the talk, you would have thought they’re the second coming. Granted, my team is atrocious. But, we’ve only got about 9 nfl caliber players. For a team that has already been crowned, they didn’t do it for me. Sorry.

    To the Eli haters for a second. Yeah.. He’s having a bad season. But… If he was stat conscious like Rodgers, he’d have a third of the picks and 4x the sacks.

  41. chicagogiantsfan says: Dec 15, 2013 6:59 PM

    Really felt bad for the Giants defense, as they didn’t play bad most of the game. But between 3 and outs, or immediate turnovers for the offense, they were going to get tired sooner or later.

    Give Antrell Rolle the money that was earmarked for Eli Manning next year. Rolle is at least playing like he cares about the outcome. Absolutely sick of Eli’s aw-shucks look.

    If they lose, I can deal with that. But he looks like he flat out doesn’t care. I guess as long as the check is the same, that’s all that counts.

    Three ints in two games for Maxwell. Browner is irrelevant. Seahawk secondary showed they can cover as well as mug receivers. They don’t win with drives almost entirely built on interference calls like last week, and they won’t lose if teams don’t respect their coverage skills.

  45. dbones750 says: Dec 15, 2013 8:24 PM

    At least he isn’t gunshy from all the picks. Keep throwing

  48. jdrewsy says: Dec 16, 2013 12:53 AM

    For the Hawks to march into MetLife and shut out the Giants and pick off Eli 5 times. What else do you need to see? We were dominant!!!!! See you in February. Go Hawks!

    someone sounds like they’re a little bitter…..dude, you follow every Seahawks story and post the same exact half retarded mess each time. Its blatantly obvious that you wanna be a seahawk fan, or you’re just amazingly THAT stupid. Lol.
    CONTRACTS: yes, golden Tate is a FA after the season. Along with Mike Robinson, giacomini, Tony McDaniel, Clint McDonald, Mike Morgan, browner, Thurmond, maragos, and hauschka. We’ll resign Thurmond, and McDonald, and Tate, probably haushcka too. I fail to see what you mean by saying that. Your criticism on Russell or Pete, is about as dumb as two deaf kids arguing

  50. bigbluefan1 says: Dec 16, 2013 8:54 AM

    I was at the game and the Hawks did not beat the Giants the Giants beat the Giants.

    As for the Seachicken fans before you start buying your tickets to NJ for the Super Bowl remember a 18-0 team that thought they had it all and ran into one Giant Loss.

    The Seachicken fans that I had the displeasure of seeing yesterday are some of the worst to ever set foot in Metlife and that is bad considering the Jets play there and Philly visits aleast once a year

  51. kkalama1 says: Dec 16, 2013 10:38 AM

    Its cause the giants are plain HORRIBLE and faced an elite TOP RANKED #1 defense, Eli looks so funny when he gets picked off!!! Its hilarious, like it wasnt his fault, some of his throws should NEVER have crossed his mind to try to even complete it at all. Lol you said “the hawks didnt beat the giant, the giants beat the giants” did you even watch the game? Musta been pouting in your chair and seahawks fans cheering in your view

    “The Seachicken fans that I had the displeasure of seeing yesterday are some of the worst to ever set foot in Metlife and that is bad considering the Jets play there and Philly visits aleast once a year.”

    What were they doing, cheering for their team and getting excited when they won?

    I hate it when fans act like that.

    Might make some sense if he were a pitcher…. but he’s not…. so, in actuality, this is really lame.
