Giants offense versus Seahawks defense

Let’s be very clear here. Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones has played in 12 prime-time games. Daniel Jones has won one prime-time game. This is a prime-time game. Daniel Jones will lose this game.

The Giants' offense is ranked as one of the five worst in the NFL. Much of that is attributable to their offensive line.

They were really hoping that right tackle Evan Neal was going to be good. To put it simply, he is not good. It’s not just Neal though. The entire O-line is bad.

Their lack of protection has led to Jones being sacked 12 times this season. That's tied for the fourth-highest total league-wide.

This passing offense goes through tight end Darren Waller, and in most offenses that’s really not something that you want. That’s especially the case when Waller hasn’t had a good and/or healthy year since 2020. 

It’s too early to tell. This game will be featured on Monday Night Football, but there are questions about whether or not running back Saquon Barkley is trending toward playing. Many believe he'll be ready.

He missed last week with some kind of ankle sprain, but he wouldn’t have really mattered much in their 30-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He’s an older running back coming off of an injury, so his effectiveness in this game is even more of a question mark.

It's hard to find positives for the G-Men. It’s looking like it’ll be a very long year for their fans. You love to see it.

Prediction: Seahawks -1.5

How is the spread here only 1.5 points? The Giants defense won’t be able to get the Seahawks off the field and it’ll end up being a two-score game (or more).

Also, the Seahawks have never lost in MetLife Stadium. The Seahawks’s head coach Pete Carroll will embarrass Brian Daboll and we’ll all go to bed on Monday happy that the Giants have lost yet another game. They’re very bad, you guys.
