Even when things went right for the Seahwks on Sunday, they didn't go pretty. Seattle beat the New York Giants 36-25 in a game riddled with turnovers, penalties, and injuries. In the process, they lost starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, linebacker Leroy Hill, and offensive tackle Russell Okung to injury.
The Seahwks led 29-25 with less than two minutes to play when Giants quarterback Eli Manning had a pass tipped near the end zone. Cornerback Brandon Browner picked the pass off and ran it back 94 yards for a touchdown that put the game out of reach.
The interception was one of many big plays from the Seattle defense. Manning threw three interceptions and the Giants lost two fumbles. There was also a safety: tied at 14 in the 3rd quarter, Anthony Hargrove stuffed Giants running back Danny Ware in the endzone, putting the Seahawks up 16-14.
The Seahawks also fires on all cylindars offensively. Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst combined to pass for 315 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Running back Marshawn Lynch ran for 98 yards on just 12 carries, and rookie wide receiver Doug Baldwin continued his surprising season by catching 8 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown.
Jackson completed15-22 passes before leaving the game after a first-down run in the third quarter. He was diagnosed later with a strained pectoral muscle. There is no word yet on whether he will return after the Seahawks' bye week.
