Contain Russell Wilson
Graham’s defense is going to really be tested in this matchup, as they must figure out how to contain Wilson. The Giants’ front seven has to consistently blitz him in order to have any chance of slowing down the Seahawks’ high-powered offense. Seattle will not be able to get the running game going with Chris Carson if the Giants’ defensive line can successfully put pressure on Wilson. Other teams have been able to do this, as the Dallas Cowboys sacked him four times in Week 3, while the Buffalo Bills also took him down five times in Week 9. Graham needs to call a few different blitz packages in this game. Look for Leonard Williams to be one of the Giants’ “x-factors” in this matchup. Graham will need to rely on Williams to bring a lot of pressure from the outside and make Seattle’s versatile quarterback uncomfortable. If Wilson has time, he will be able to either find an open receiver or escape the pocket and pick up big yardage with his legs.

DAYS'S BEN TO CIARA: REMEMBER OUR LOVE
A distraught Ben confides in Jake about the situation with Ciara. Jake suggests giving Ciara the memory serum, but Ben notes there are a few issues with that. Jake thinks Ben needs to talk to Ciara and do whatever he can to jog her memory. “Jake pretty much slaps the sense into Ben because Ben is getting beat up by this on a few different rounds trying to get her to remember,” explains Robert Scott Wilson (Ben). “Jake tells him to get over there and keep fighting. Not that Ben’s giving up, but Jake is the one to kind of light a fire under him, so he takes his advice.”
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN: TOP AVAILABLE FREE AGENTS
Leonard Williams, Giants 6-5 • 255 pounds • 28 years old An athletic 300-pounder with quick feet, Williams amassed a career-high 11.5 sacks last season. Add that to him being a stout run defender, very durable and possessing great character, and he should be in high demand. He won NFC Defensive Player of the Week twice last year. $$$$$
