NEWARK, N.J. — Defensive back Devon Whitterspoon played the best game of his young NFL career to help the Seattle Seahawks defeat the New York Giants 24-3 on Monday night.
The fifth overall pick in the recent draft, Whiterspoon scored the first touchdown of his career late in the third quarter. As the Giants (1-3) were about to score, cornerback Daniel Jones intercepted a pass and raced 97 yards for the key score. Whiterspoon also added two sacks.
In the second quarter, the Seahawks (3-1) were afraid. They lost the services of Geno Smith, who appeared to hurt his knee after a tackle. But Smith returned to his position to start the third quarter.
The veteran was relatively efficient in this game, completing 13 of 20 passes for 110 yards. He threw a touchdown pass to DK Metcalf to give his team the lead in the first quarter.
In New York’s camp, things are far from improving for the offensive unit led by Daniel Jones and Brian Daboll.
Jones completed 27 of 34 passes for 203 yards, but the Duke alum threw two interceptions and was the victim of a fumble. The Seahawks defense manhandled him behind the line of scrimmage by managing 10 sacks for losses of 60 yards. Seattle also managed another quarterback sack at the expense of Paris Campbell. The Seahawks’ 11 sacks tied a team record.
The Giants are the only team in Goodell Arena that has not scored a goal in the first half of this season. the worst ; They have been outscored 77-9 in the first 30 minutes of play in the first four games. New York has held the lead for just 19 seconds since the start of the 2023 campaign.
In their first game of the season, also in front of their own fans, the G-Men were humiliated 40-0 by the Dallas Cowboys.
Jamal Adams is unlucky
Returning to the game after an absence of 385 days, Seahawks safety Jamal Adams did not get the desired return. After just nine defensive plays, he was forced to leave the game due to a concussion.
But Adams appears to disagree with the decision of the independent doctors at MetLife Stadium. He exchanged some words with them on the sidelines of the match before heading towards the guest dressing room.
The Giants were once again without the services of star linebacker Saquon Barkley, who is dealing with an ankle injury.
