Giants head West for toughest opponent so far
The Giant Insider|December 7, 2020
The Giants will be faced with one of their biggest challenges of the season when they travel to Seattle to take on Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. Although the infamous “12th Man” will be absent in this matchup due to Coronavirus-related restrictions, pulling off a road win in Seattle is still going to be a very tough task for Joe Judge’s team. Now in his ninth season, Wilson is having a spectacular year and is well on his way to winning his first NFL MVP Award. Patrick Graham has the nearly impossible job of figuring out how to contain the Seahawks’ dynamic quarterback. The Giants’ front seven must continue to get in Wilson’s face and not let him escape and make big plays with his legs. They clearly have one of the league’s best offenses, but Seattle’s defense has struggled tremendously this season. Daniel Jones needs to continue to methodically move the ball down the field against this vulnerable Seahawks’ secondary and keep Wilson on the sideline. In order to slow down Wilson, the Giants’ secondary must figure out how to take away his two favorite targets, D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Here are TGI’s keys to victory against Seattle:

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.
