NFL Scores, Week 5: Seahawks Explode In Fourth Quarter, Beat Giants 36-25

New, comment

Eli Manning threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns, but his three picks helped the Seahawks top the Giants.

Victor Cruz nearly saved Eli Manning and the Giants from an ignominious road defeat. But the feisty Seahawks just kept pouring it on in the fourth quarter, eventually taking down the Giants at CenturyLink Field.

Charlie Whitehurst, who came on in relief of Tarvaris Jackson, led the Seahawks on an 80-yard go-ahead touchdown drive in the fourth quarter, and Brandon Browner turned Manning's second of three interceptions on the day into a pick-six to ice the game for Seattle.

Whitehurst and Jackson combined for 279 passing yards and two touchdowns, while Marshawn Lynch ran for 98 yards and a touchdown.

Manning threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns, and found Cruz eight times for 161 yards and a score. But his three interceptions were crippling, and the anemic Giants running game produced just 69 yards on the ground without the injured Brandon Jacobs.

With the win, the Seahawks move to 2-3 on the season; the Giants fall to 3-2 with the loss.
