Giants stun Seahawks with late touchdown on Monday Night Football

The New York Giants pulled off a stunning upset over the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, scoring a late touchdown to win 24-21. The Giants improved to 2-2 on the season, while the Seahawks fell to 2-2 and lost their first game at MetLife Stadium since 2011.

Giants defense shuts down Geno Smith and the Seahawks offense

The Giants defense was the key to their victory, as they held the Seahawks offense to just 277 yards and forced two turnovers. The Giants sacked Geno Smith four times and intercepted him once, while also recovering a fumble by Chris Carson. The Giants defense also came up with a crucial stop on fourth-and-one at their own 41-yard line with less than two minutes left in the game, giving their offense a chance to win.

The Seahawks offense struggled to find any rhythm or consistency, as they failed to convert on third down nine times out of 12. Smith, who was filling in for the injured Russell Wilson, completed 23 of 34 passes for 253 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also ran for 19 yards and a touchdown, but could not lead his team to a comeback in the final drive.

Carson was the leading rusher for the Seahawks, with 64 yards on 15 carries. He also caught four passes for 28 yards, but lost a fumble in the third quarter that led to a Giants field goal. DK Metcalf was the top receiver for the Seahawks, with six catches for 87 yards and a touchdown. He scored on a 25-yard pass from Smith in the second quarter, giving the Seahawks a 14-10 lead.

Daniel Jones leads Giants to game-winning drive

The Giants offense was not spectacular, but it was efficient and effective when it mattered most. Daniel Jones completed 18 of 28 passes for 241 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran for 27 yards on six carries, including a crucial scramble for a first down on the final drive.

Jones led the Giants to a game-winning drive that started at their own 25-yard line with 1:50 left in the game. He completed five of six passes for 75 yards on the drive, including a 16-yard strike to Sterling Shepard on third-and-seven at the Seahawks’ 36-yard line. He then found Darius Slayton for a 20-yard touchdown pass with 28 seconds left, putting the Giants ahead 24-21.

Slayton was the leading receiver for the Giants, with five catches for 101 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from Jones in the first quarter, giving the Giants a 7-0 lead. Shepard had four catches for 48 yards and a touchdown, while Evan Engram had three catches for 32 yards.

The Giants running game was not very effective, as they managed only 77 yards on 26 carries. Saquon Barkley, who was doubtful with an ankle injury, did not play in the game. Devontae Booker was the leading rusher for the Giants, with 42 yards on 14 carries.

What’s next for both teams?

The Giants will look to build on their momentum when they host the Dallas Cowboys next week in a crucial NFC East matchup. The Cowboys are also 2-2 after beating the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The Giants are currently tied with the Washington Football Team for second place in the division, behind the Philadelphia Eagles who are 3-1.

The Seahawks will try to bounce back when they travel to Los Angeles to face the Rams next week in a key NFC West showdown. The Rams are also 2-2 after losing to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The Seahawks are currently tied with the San Francisco 49ers for third place in the division, behind the Cardinals who are 4-0 and the only undefeated team in the NFL.
