One of the biggest Cinderella stories of the 2022 NFL season may turn pumpkin in 2023.
After winning nine games last year, the New York Giants haven’t looked sharp this fall, and Monday night was no exception.
The Seattle Seahawks looked like a good middle-of-the-road opponent for the Giants in Week 4, jumping out to a 14-3 lead early in halftime of the “Monday Night Football” contest at MetLife Stadium. Seattle scored in the first quarter on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith to DK Metcalf — set up only after Mario Edwards stripped Daniel Jones of a fumble.
The game was riddled with penalties and injuries early on. After tearing his quadriceps tendon in Week 1 last season, Jamal Adams officially returned to the field Monday night. Adams, however, was ruled out by just one drive before his return due to a concussion after taking a knee to the helmet. Smith entered the medical tent just before halftime, which led to Drew Lock entering the game in his place. Smith was tackled hard from behind on the sideline by Isaiah Simmons late in the second quarter, and he wasn’t happy about it.
Kenneth Walker then connected with tight end Noah Fand for a 51-yard gain for a touchdown in the final minutes of the half.
The Giants have been outscored 77-9 in the first half so far this season. They are the only team in the league not to touch the top half.
Smith returned to the game after the break.
