The Seahawks beat the Giants 27-13 to stay atop the NFC West | WGN 720 Radio

SEATTLE (AP) — Tyler Luckett caught a 33-yard pass from Gene Smith with 9:18 left and the Seattle Seahawks won their third straight with a 27-13 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.

The NFL’s only matchup of teams with record wins this week was lopsided until the fourth quarter, when Lockett made up for two big mistakes earlier in the game and Seattle rookie Kenneth Walker III finally broke free, helping the surprising Seahawks (5-3) stay atop the NFC West.

New York (6-2) snapped a four-game winning streak early next week and fell to undefeated Philadelphia in the NFC East — largely because the Seahawks held Saquon Barkley to a season-low 53 yards on 20 carries and had three catches for 9 yards.

Lockett threw a short pass at the 3-yard line in the first half, but Adoree’ Jackson forced and recovered a fumble, leading to a 1-yard TD run by Barkley. Lockett was free behind the Giants’ backup late in the third quarter, but threw what would have been a 33-yard touchdown.

Lockett got another chance on the next drive in Seattle. First, he made a solid 12-yard catch. Then he gave Jackson a stammering wave and flashed down the sideline. Smith’s throw was accurate for a touchdown and a 20-13 Seattle lead.

Seattle added an insurance with 5:22 left thanks to Walker. New York’s Richie James fumbled his second punt of the game, giving Seattle the ball at the Giants 32. Two plays later, Walker changed his field, broke tackles and scampered 16 yards for a rushing touchdown.

Walker finished with 51 yards on 18 carries. Smith was 23 of 34 for 212 yards and two touchdowns, including a 3-yard TD pass to DK Metcalf in the second quarter. Smith was 5-for-5 for 75 yards on the drive, capped by Lockett’s scoring catch. Both Lockett (hamstring/oblique) and Metcalfe (knee) were questionable entering the game.

Barkley entered the week leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage and was second in rushing yards. His low on the ground the previous season was 70 yards against Green Bay. But he struggled against a Seahawks defense that gave up 235 yards rushing in New Orleans less than a month ago.

The lack of a quick game put pressure on Daniel Jones, who avoided big mistakes but didn’t make any big plays in the air. Jones was 17 of 31 for 176 yards and was sacked five times.


Seattle coach Pete Carroll tied Bud Grant for 18th on the all-time wins list with 168 wins, including the playoffs.

Carroll was also penalized for sideline interference late in the fourth quarter when he collided with a referee. Referee Jerome Boger inadvertently called a penalty against the Seattle Mariners.


New York lost defensive lineman Nick Williams in the first quarter to a bicep injury, and James was ruled out with a concussion after hitting the back of his head on the turf on second down. Seattle played most of the game without pass rusher Darrell Taylor with a hip injury and versatile quarterback Ryan Neal limped off in the fourth quarter with an apparent leg injury.


Giants: After a bye, New York hosts Houston on Nov. 13.

Seahawks: At Arizona next Sunday.
