Week 7: at New York Giants

All QB vs NYG

FBG says: Tough matchup. Here's where the Seahawks' real dynamism lies. Armed with playmakers at wideout, tight end, and running back, quarterback Russell Wilson is fully capable of flipping the switch and producing a huge passing line. Over Weeks 3 and 4, he completed 67% of his throws for 668 yards and 6 touchdowns. Of course, sandwiched around those games have been 3 of under 200 yards and just 3 combined scores - all against relatively weak pass defenses. It's never easy going behind an offensive line this bad, and Wilson is similarly capable of dud games in which he's harassed relentlessly. He's definitely skilled enough to move around and create big plays with his arm, so he can never be counted out, but his big weeks aren't easy to project. Wilson hasn't focused as tightly on wideout Doug Baldwin as he has in recent years, spreading the ball around to his playmakers. He has enough of them to bring a dynamic outlook in any given week, but again, it's hard to count on him having opportunity to deliver the ball downfield well due to the weakness of his line. The Giants' strong yet inconsistent secondary looked to take a step forward in Week 6, even with star slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended. Fellow stud cover man Janoris Jenkins was down a bit, losing his battle with Demaryius Thomas, but that will happen. The real news was the improved play of opposite cornerback Eli Apple, who'd been roasted and benched throughout the young season but shone brightly last Sunday. If Apple can keep the momentum up, he'll paper over what has been an enormous and exploitable hole on the back end. All in all, the Giants secondary can be beaten - it's an aggressive unit that will occasionally guess wrong and allow big completions. But the sporadic dominance of Jenkins and Rodgers-Cromartie, as well as the promise of former first-round pick Apple, typically creates long days for opposing quarterback/receiver pairings. Prior to last Sunday, no wideout had topped 70 yards against them, and several WR1 types (Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery, Golden Tate, and Keenan Allen) had all been more or less neutralized.
