10 things to watch in Giants vs. Seahawks



The all-time series between the Giants are Seahawks is tied 9-9, with Seattle winning the past four contests (2011, 2013, 2014, 2017). The Giants' last win in Seattle came on a 2010 road trip when Eli Manning threw three touchdowns and Ahmad Bradshaw ran for two more in a 41-7 victory.


With a 19-17 victory in Cincinnati, the Giants improved to 4-7 after a 0-5 start to the season. Their three-game winning streak is their longest since recording six consecutive victories in 2016, the last time they made the postseason. The Giants sit atop the NFC East, holding a tiebreaker over Washington (also 4-7) after sweeping the season series.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, defeated the Eagles 23-17 in Week 12 to improve to 8-3. Seattle, which started 5-0, is 3-3 since its bye week.


Daniel Jones is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's road game against the Seattle Seahawks but traveled with the team. Jones injured his right hamstring in last week's 19-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals and was replaced by Colt McCoy, who could start on Sunday if Jones cannot play.


McCoy is in line to make his 29th career start in 11 NFL seasons. He last started on Oct. 6, 2019, for Washington against New England. Last week marked 421 days between appearances for the veteran backup.

"Colt's had a good week of practice," coach Joe Judge said. "He's working hard. Colt's got a lot of experience. He doesn't really miss a beat. He gets in there, it's like riding a bike for this guy. He gets in there and he competes. Everything is very, very competitive with Colt. He goes in there, especially offense versus defensive period, we're making it competitive. He gets a lot of the juice flowing there throughout the team. He's not afraid to mix it up and talk a little smack with the guys. It's fun seeing him operate."

Running back Wayne Gallman has reached the end zone in five consecutive games, the longest streak by a Giants player since Saquon Barkley scored touchdowns in five consecutive games from Sept. 23-Oct. 22, 2018. He is the first Giants player to rush for a touchdown in five consecutive games since Andre Brown had a streak of six straight games in 2012-13.


Defensive lineman Leonard Williams needs one more sack to match his career high (7.0 with Jets in 2016).


Bradberry, who is tied for second in the NFL with 15 passes defensed, earned his stripes in the receiver-rich NFC South, where he played his first four seasons with the Panthers. But "you don't have a lot of guys walking the earth" like Seattle's DK Metcalf. The 6-foot-4, 229-pound wide receiver leads the league with 1,039 receiving yards, and his 12 receptions of 30-plus yards are four more than anyone else.


Defensive back Logan Ryan leads NFC free safeties in Pro Bowl voting by fans (Pittsburgh's Minkah Fitzpatrick leads the AFC). Roster selections are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 18.

This week, Ryan was also named the Giants' nominee for the 2020 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. The award, established in 2014, is presented each year to an NFL player "who demonstrates the qualities of outstanding sportsmanship on the playing field, including fair play, respect for opponents and integrity in competition." It is named in in honor of the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Rooney, Sr.


With four last week, Graham Gano extended his streak to 24 consecutive successful field goal attempts. He now has the second-longest streak in Giants history and needs five more to tie the record.


Despite the lack of fans, the Seahawks are still 5-0 this season at home this season. Since Pete Carroll took over in 2010, the Seahawks are 68-23 as the home team, including 6-0 in the postseason.
