NEW YORK GIANTS (5-2)
at SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (4-3)
Kickoff: Sunday, 4:05 p.m. EDT, Line: New York -7, Total: 41
The Giants look for their fifth straight victory when they travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. New York, coming off a bye, has allowed just 188 rushing yards (47 YPG) during the win streak. Seattle is trying to regroup after being thrashed 33-3 at Oakland last week, but will have to do so without starting QB Matt Hasselbeck who suffered a concussion in the loss. Charlie Whitehurst will replace Hasselbeck under center and the good news is that WR Mike Williams was upgraded to probable and will play despite a knee injury. NFL betting lines.
Whitehurst has a really tough matchup with the Giants who rank second in the league in pass defense (178 YPG) and are tied for third with 24 sacks. Whitehurst, who hasn’t thrown a pass in an NFL game, will also be missing starting tackles Russell Okung (ankle) and Tyler Polumbus (knee sprain). Before tweaking his knee against Oakland, Williams had 21 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown in two previous games. Football odds.
