Giants Choke Against the Seahawks 24-21
Division east leader NY Giants faced the NFC leader Seatle Seahawks in a battle of the NFC's best teams. The New York Giants orchestrated a 4th quarter drive for a touchdown and a two point conversion to tie up the game with under two minutes left. Seatle got the ball, went three and out, then punted away to the Giants with less than a minute left in regulation. The Giants then made a few spectacular plays and took the ball within field goal range calling a timeout with 4 seconds left. One of the leagues top kickers in Jay Feeley came onto the field and missed. The Giants then lost the coin toss in overtime and managed to get the ball back within field goal range only to have Feeley come up shy. Just when you thought the Giants were running out of chances they once again got the ball within 48 yards for a field goal that landed just shy of the goal post. Seatle then got themselves within field goal range and scored on their first attempt. In this gut wrenching loss to the Seahawks Giants had 490 yards compared to Seatle's 355, 8 more first downs and one more takeaway. The Seahawks were dominated in all aspects of the game except the Giants' 16 penalties and the final score. Giants still are tied for the lead in the NFC East at 7-4. They face their division co-leaders the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday at Giants Stadium. Big Game, they lost the first match up in Dallas!
