The 2023 NFL season is proving to be full of surprises, and Monday night’s clash between the New York Giants and the Seattle Seahawks was no different.

In stark contrast to their strong showing in the 2022 season, the New York Giants have struggled to find their form this autumn, and Monday’s game at MetLife Stadium underscored their ongoing challenges.

The Seattle Seahawks, considered a middle-of-the-road opponent for the Giants in Week 4, asserted their dominance right from the kickoff and clinched an emphatic 24-3 victory. The Seahawks wasted no time, with Geno Smith connecting with DK Metcalf for a 6-yard touchdown pass to cap off the first quarter. This pivotal touchdown was set up by a fumble recovery engineered by Mario Edwards, who stripped Daniel Jones of the ball.

The game got off to a rocky start with numerous penalties and injuries. Jamal Adams, who had been sidelined with a quadriceps tendon injury since Week 1 of the previous season, made a highly anticipated return to the field on Monday night. However, Adams was forced out of the game due to a concussion early on. Geno Smith also found himself in the medical tent just before halftime after absorbing a hard tackle from Isaiah Simmons. During his absence, Drew Lock stepped in and made a significant impact with a 51-yard pass to Noah Fant, ultimately leading to a touchdown by Kenneth Walker in the closing minutes of the first half.

The Giants have had their share of first-half woes this season, having been outscored 77-9, making them the only team in the league without a first-half touchdown.

Geno Smith returned to the game after halftime, and just when the Giants appeared to be mounting a comeback drive into the red zone, Daniel Jones threw a costly 97-yard pick-six. Jones went on to throw another interception in the fourth quarter, this time to Quandre Diggs, setting the stage for the Seahawks to seal their 21-point victory. The Seahawks’ defense had a remarkable night, tying a team record with 11 sacks.

In the losing effort for New York, Daniel Jones completed 27-of-34 passes for 203 yards but had two interceptions. Jones also led the team in rushing with 66 yards on 10 carries. Geno Smith finished the game with 13-of-20 passing for 110 yards and one touchdown, while Kenneth Walker contributed 79 rushing yards on 17 carries, along with his touchdown.

In summary, Monday night’s showdown showcased the Seahawks’ dominance and the Giants’ ongoing struggles in the 2023 NFL season. As both teams look ahead, they will undoubtedly aim to build on the lessons learned from this game and strive for improvement in the weeks to come. The Seahawks, in particular, demonstrated their prowess and determination on the field, living up to their reputation as a formidable force in the NFL.
