Monday Night Football: Three Key Takeaways from the Seahawks’ Convincing Win Against the Giants in Week 4.

In a match that may be marked in history as Devon Witherspoon’s meteoric rise as an NFL star, the Seahawks displayed an impeccable defense against the Giants. A haunting display in New Jersey saw them equalling their franchise record with an astonishing 11 sacks during a Monday Night Football game that culminated in a 24-3 victory.

Now boasting a remarkable 29-12 Monday night football league record, the Seahawks stand tall. Dive in for some notable takeaways:

1. A Defense That Spells Dominance

It’s impossible to overlook Witherspoon’s outstanding performance. His 97-yard interception touchdown remains one of the most memorable moments. With two sacks, seven tackles, and three quarterback hits under his belt that night, Witherspoon is making a compelling case for the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Yet, he wasn’t the lone star. Bobby Wagner clocked in with 17 tackles and two sacks. Jordyn Brooks and Uchenna Nwosu also left their mark. Marlo Edwards Jr., Myles Adams, and Boye Mafe contributed with sacks. Moreover, Quandre Diggs’ interception in the final quarter only solidified the team’s defensive prowess. This night marked a pinnacle for a Seahawks team under Pete Carroll’s coaching.

2. Resilient O-Line Stands Firm

Despite injuries plaguing players like Jamal Adams, Phil Haynes, and Damien Lewis, the Seahawks held the fort. Even with the absence of Charles Cross and Abe Lucas, the team showed resilience. The lineup, which included Shane Forsythe, Evan Brown, Olu Oluwatimi, Anthony Bradford, and Jake Curhan, did a commendable job, racking up 121 rushing yards and conceding just two sacks.

3. Drew Lock’s Noteworthy Seahawks Debut

After Geno Smith had to step out due to a knee concern, Drew Lock took the field. Acquired from Denver in a previous year’s trade, this marked Lock’s inaugural game for the Seahawks. He steered the team to a 14-3 advantage by halftime, showcasing his skills with 63 yards on a 2-for-6 passing rate. Fortunately, Smith made a comeback in the latter half, ensuring the Seahawks’ dominance.
