New York Giants, Seattle’s next opponent, gets hammered at home and loses a couple players

The New York Giants, Seattle’s next opponent, will come limping into CenturyLink Field Sunday after a 40-24 home loss to the Colts Monday night to fall to 3-5 on the season.

Making the night worse, the Giants suffered a significant loss in the secondary when cornerback Prince Amukamara suffered a torn biceps, which will likely keep him out for the rest of the season. As the linked story notes, guard Weston Richburg left late in the game with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury.

The Giants though they night have one of the better secondaries in the NFL entering the season after also adding former Seahawk Walter Thurmond in the off-season. But Thurmond was lost in September to a torn pectoral muscle.

The Giants have now lost three in a row after having won three in a row following an 0-2 start, having allowed 98 points in those three defeats.

Here’s a quick analysis of the game from the New York Daily News. The New York Post, meanwhile, called it “an abysmal performance.” And NJ.com wonders when baseball season begins with both the Jets and the Giants seeming dead in the water.

So yeah, the Giants will be reeling coming to Seattle.

Seattle is already a nine-point favorite, a line that doesn’t figure to be coming down based on what happened Monday night.
