Three Keys for the New York Giants Against the Seattle Seahawks


Who would have thought that the New Giants and Seattle Seahawks would be playing in a meaningful matchups in week eight of the NFL season. Well they are with both of these teams set to square off this Sunday. The Giants are looking to get to five straight wins for the first time since 2016 while Seattle looks to win its third straight for the first time since 2020. Can the Giants win another game as underdogs? Here’s the three keys for a Big Blue victory.

Daniel Jones, keep doing your thing

Daniel Jones is coming off a game where he threw for over 200 yards and ran for another 100, no other Giants quarterback has ever done that. And as a result of his impressive play, he took home honors of NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Jones is thriving under first year head coach Brian Daboll. He has limited turnovers, runs the football a lot more, keeps his team in each game and plays really well overall with little help at the receiving position. If Daniel Jones continues what he did last week against a pretty bad defense like Seattle’s, we could see yet another Giants victory getting to 7-1.

Slow down Geno Smith/Kenneth Walker

Quarterback Geno Smith has been exceeding expectations playing his best football of his career while rookie running back Kenneth Walker is already being compared to Adrian Peterson. Both have been huge factors of Seattle running up the scoreboard this season and it will be a lot for the Giants already banged up defense to handle. Walker is coming off rushing for over 160 yards while Smith has passed for over 10 touchdowns already too. The Giants defense in particular their rushing defense and secondary need to step up and play better. They need to avoid what they did last week and that’s giving up huge rush and pass plays that almost lost them the game against the Jags. If they can slow down Smith and Walker, they have a chance for another victory.

Start fast

The Giants need to start out this game fast against a high power Seattle team. The key to that is to make sure to start out fast and not fall behind early, especially since they’re on the road. This game could very well turn into either a shootout on offense or a Seattle blowout victory. The Giants don’t want that. They have to play toe to toe with the Seahawks and the key to that is to take advantage of everytime they possess the football. It is not going to be easy but if they feed the football to Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones continues his early season success, the Giants can pull off another upset.
