Giants stun Seahawks for signature Joe Judge win
The Giants have won games this season under the direction of first-year head coach Joe Judge. But not like this.
Yes, their previous four victories were mostly close and taut, with agonizingly no margin for error. That is the way it went, again, Sunday in Seattle, but this was so very different.
This was a landmark victory for Judge. He took his team across the country to face Russell Wilson and the first-place Seahawks, a legit playoff and Super Bowl contender in the NFC. The Giants were 10-point underdogs and had to go with backup Colt McCoy at quarterback.
The Giants found a way, incredibly. They took it to Wilson for 60 minutes, got just enough out of McCoy and plenty out of running back Wayne Gallman. Their defense showed up early, in the middle and late, and it all came together for a shocking 17-12 victory at Lumen Field.
