One of the biggest Cinderella stories from the 2022 NFL season may have turned into a pumpkin in 2023.
After winning nine games last year, the New York Giants don’t look nearly as sharp this fall, and Monday night was no exception.
The Seattle Seahawks, who seemed like a nice middle-of-the-road opponent for the Giants in Week 4, jumped up to an early 14-3 lead at halftime of their “Monday Night Football” matchup at MetLife Stadium. Seattle scored on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith to DK Metcalf to close out the first quarter — which was only set up after Mario Edwards stripped Daniel Jones and forced a fumble.
The game was full of penalties and injuries early. After tearing his quadriceps tendon in Week 1 last season, Jamal Adams officially made his return to the field on Monday night. Adams, however, was ruled out just one drive into his return due to a concussion after he took a knee to the helmet. Smith entered the medical tent just before halftime, too, which led to Drew Lock entering the game in his place. Smith was tackled hard from behind on the sidelines by Isaiah Simmons late in the second quarter, and he wasn’t happy about it.
The Giants have now been outscored 77-9 in the first half so far this season. They’re the only team in the league without a first half touchdown.
Smith returned to the game just after halftime.
