The Seahawks are the answer to one of the most intriguing questions of the midpoint of the 2022 NFL season: Which upstart team is a legitimate playoff contender?
It’s not the New York Giants. Not on this particular Sunday, anyway.
The Seahawks, at 5-3, remain atop the NFC West after their convincing victory over the Giants, 27-13, before a sold-out crowd at Lumen Field on Sunday.
Here are three immediate takeaways from the game.
Redemption couldn’t have come much more quickly — and also likely sweeter — for Tyler Lockett.
Mired in maybe the most mistake-prone game of his storied Seahawks career, Seattle’s longest-tenured player made the biggest play of the game when it mattered most, hauling in a 33-yard TD pass from Geno Smith in the fourth quarter for the go-ahead score to lead the Seahawks to a 27-13 win over the New York Giants.
The win was Seattle’s third in a row, improved the Seahawks record to 5-3, and gave them a victory against maybe the only team in the NFL who has so far been a bigger surprise — a Giants team that fell to 6-2.
Lockett was listed as questionable for the game with rib and hamstring injuries. The hamstring issue has allowed him to barely practice the last two weeks.
And maybe it was that rust that led to two totally uncharacteristic plays that might have been all that stood between Seattle and an easy win Sunday.
Huge win for #Seahawks, 27-13 over the New York Giants, who came in with a 6-1 record. Great defensive effort. Another superb outing for Geno Smith. He's for real. So, it seems, are the Seahawks.
Two Seahawks sacks by Ford and Nwosu are going to end this. Seattle wins it 27-13, improves to 5-3.
What a way for things to end in Seattle. @Seahawks get the dub!

The Seattle "Mariners'' coaching staff was just called for sideline encroachment.
Mariners fever. Catch it.
Didn't realize you were in the building, @Mariners. 😂 #EmbraceTheChaos
Cody Barton breaks up a fourth down pass and this one is pretty much over. Seattle has 2:32 to go to improve to 5-3 and keep a one-game lead in the NFC West.
Ryan Neal down and now limping off.
Kenneth Walker breaks free for a 16-yard TD with 5:22 left and Seattle is on the verge of a pretty validating win.
.@Kenneth_Walker9's got that K9 in him. 😤 TD @Seahawks!

How is that for redemption? Smith to Lockett for a 33-yard TD with 9:18 left…
Touchdown, Seahawks.

Geno Smith to Tyler Lockett, 33 yards. Good play. Great execution.
Seahawks 20, Giants 13.

Drive: 5 plays, 75 yards, 1:59.

9:18 left in the game.
Geno executes a textbook, 75-yard scoring drive as #Seahawks move ahead 20-13. He was 5-for-5 in a mere one minute and 59 seconds, capped by a 33-yard TD pass to Lockett — who caught it this time.
Nice spin move there from Lockett to pick up some extra yards. 12 yards there. Seahawks quickly into Giants territory.
Graham Gano ties it with a 45-yard FG with 11:17 to play.
Giants with drives of 15 and 12 plays in second half but just six points.
Some familiar "Bruuuuuuuuce" vibes here. That was a throwback to the LOB days right there.
FOX TV cameras captured Pete Carroll kneeling down and giving a pep talk to Tyler Lockett on the Seahawks sideline late in the third quarter.
Lockett, head down as he sat on the bench, has had one of his most forgettable days as a Seahawk through three quarters.
He dropped what would have been a sure touchdown just in front of the end zone late in the third quarter on a beautiful throw from Geno Smith. The ball hit Lockett in the face mask and then off his hands along the right sideline.
In the second quarter, Lockett caught a short pass from Smith and fumbled inside the Seattle 5-yard line, setting up an easy touchdown for the Giants — their lone touchdown of the day.
The Giants haven’t been able to get much going with their vaunted rushing attack, but the did eat up almost nine minutes off the clock to start the second half, getting a couple of key third-down throws from Daniel Jones and tying the score at 10-10 on a Graham Gano 31-yard field goal with 6:04 left in the third quarter.
Through three quarters, the Seahawks have done well to hold Saquon Barkley in check. He has 16 carries for 48 yards, with a long of 15. Can they keep it up for one more quarter?
Doh! Did you forget about Homer?
Travis Homer was activated from the injured reserve this week and returned to his usual role as the Seahawks’ third-down running back Sunday.
He had a nice 21-yard gain on dump off from Geno Smith in the third quarter, turning nothing into something. That help set up Jason Myers’ 51-yard field goal to give the Seahawks a 13-10 lead (after Lockett’s dropped pass).
Kudos to the fan in the 300 level dressed as one of the first down markers. That’s commitment.
End of third quarter. Seattle up 13-10 with Giants facing a third-and-nine at own 49:
Ryan Neal another great play in run defense. He's made a huge difference in defense last three weeks.
Seahawks regain lead on 51-yard Myersfield goal, but only after Lockett dropped a perfect pass from Geno Smith that would have been a TD. Smith has had that happen a few times today.
Jason Myers with a 51-yard field goal with 2:42 to play in third quarter.
Tyler Lockett drops a perfect pass that would have gone for a TD on third and 2 and Seahawks will have to try a long field goal.
Rough day for Tyler Lockett.
Tyler Lockett was this close to getting your fantasy team a TD
Back to Kyle Fuller at center and Phil Haynes at RG as Seattle starts at own 25. Blythe came back for a couple of plays after knee injury but Fuller has played last few series.
Darrell Taylor listed as with a hip injury and out for the game. Came into game with a groin injury. Bruce Irvin has played major snaps since.
Giants with the FG to tie it at 6:04 of third. But Seahawks will take that after what was Giants best drive of game — 14 plays, 79 yards, 8:56.
Giants keep drive alive with a first-down conversion on 3rd-and-12 from own 35, and then tie the game 10-10 with 31-yard goal.
Daniel Jones 4-5 for 51 on that drive after Giants had just 9 net passing yards in first half. But just a FG and tie game for now.
Giants pick up a third and 12 on pass to Slayton for 18. Just got inside Jackson.
A DJ dart leads to a big conversion for the GMen!

Bruce Irvin essentially a starter today. Starts second half at an OLB spot.
Defense and turnovers were the story of the first half
First, the turnovers.
Seattle gave the Giants a TD when Adoree Jackson stripped the ball away from Tyler Lockett at the Seahawks 3-yard line and returned it one yard, leading to a quick Saquon Barkley score.
And just when the Giants appeared to be taking some control of the game after forcing punt on Seattle’s next series, New York’s Richie James fumbled while returning a punt, hit by Seattle tight end Will Dissly. The Giants came into the game with a plus-three turnover margin, tied for sixth in the NFL.
 That gave Seattle the ball at the Giants 19.
But Seattle was forced to settle for a field goal and a 10-7 lead at halftime in a sequence that obviously could be pretty pivotal down the road if this game remains a defensive struggle.
Hard to ask for more of the Seattle defense in the first half as the Seahawks held the Giants to just 46 yards overall, and 37 yards rushing on 11 carries. The Giants came into the game second in the NFL in rushing at 173.4 yards per game. But the Giants hardly tried to run earlier and Seattle has limited the Giants even when they have tried with Barkley gaining just 28 yards on nine carries.
Will be interesting to see if the Giants try to make some adjustments to what they are doing running in the second half.
Conversely, the Seahawks knew one key matchup in this game would be their interior line against Giants nose tackle Dexter Lawrence and defensive tackle Leonard Williams.
But so far, the Giants are mostly winning that battle as Walker is finding little room to run between the tackles and has just 20 yards on nine carries with a long of four.
Williams has four quarterback hits and six tackles in completely dominating inside while Lawrence has three tackles and a QB hit. 
Seahawks lead 10-7 at end of first half. Seahawks held Giants to 46 yards. Here are stats:
Seahawks hold Giants to 46 total yards in first half, lead 10-7 at intermission.
Myers 35-yard field goal appears to be tipped but somehow goes through. Seattle leads 10-7 with 1:38 to play in first half.
Seahawks settle for a Jason Myers field goal … and somehow that sneaks in from 35 yards.

Seahawks 10, Giants 7.
Giants fumble the punt and Seattle appears to have it.
After a first down Giants get two sacks and Seattle will punt. Third time Smith has been sacked now.
Seahawks gift New York a touchdown with a Tyler Lockett fumble recovered at the 2. Two plays later, Barkley runs it in for a game-tying TD.
Barkley 1-yd TD as Giants quickly convert the turnover, which was set up by the punt. 7-6 at 5:51 of second.
Tyler Lockett fumble inside the 5. Giants recover.
Uh oh. Short pass to Lockett turns into a forced fumble by Adoree Jackson and apparent recovery at the 2.
SMOOTH CRIMINAL. @AdoreeKnows with an impressive takeaway for the @Giants!

Michael Jackson playing really well today, makes the stop on third and 9 and Giants will punt again.
Giants now with two first downs after getting none in first quarter.
Giants now 4 penalties for 40 yards. Seahawks 0 penalties.
Touchdown, Seahawks.

Geno Smith to a wide open DK Metcalf in the back of the end zone.

Carroll ran down as if he might call time out. Lets play go and shovel pass to Dissly works for the first down.
Another cool fourth-down play design … shovel pass to Dissly for another conversion.
Fourth and 2 at 6 and Seahawks going for it…..
Third and one and Goodwin can't control pass in end zone. Seahawks going for it..
Cool play design on that fourth-down conversion. Geno Smith to Tyler Lockett to the Giants' 14.
Seahawks held the Giants to 15 total yards in the first half with 3 straight 3 and outs. It's 0-0, but Seattle is driving.
The Seahawks offense has struggled to find its stride early in this game, as all four of Seattle’s drives have ended in punts. The Seahawks took the ball 13 yards on its first drive before stalling out at the 42, and went 14 yards on the second drive, and 18 yards on drive No. 3.
The Seahawks appear poised to score on their fourth drive, with the ball on the 5-yard line to begin the second quarter.
Seattle has 74 net yards of offense, with Geno Smith completing seven passes for 53 yards and Kenneth Walker III rushing for 15 yards on six carries. 
The Seahawks defense has not allowed a Giants first down yet. Seattle forced a three-and-out on both of New York’s first two drives, with the Giants coming up short on a third-down pass to wide receiver Marcus Johnson at the 34 yard line, and then losing four yards on a third-and-9 pass to Saquon Barkley at the 21 yard line. 
The Giants have attempted only one run play in the game, and have 15 total yards of offense. 
Seahawks center Austin Blythe walked off the field under his own power after suffering a knee injury midway through the first quarter. The veteran free agent signee headed to the locker room and his return is questionable. Blythe was replaced on the line by Kyle Fuller. 
End of first Q. Seahawks D has been dominant:
Facemask on Jihad Ward on Walker gives Seattle a first down at the Giants 27.
Smith to Metcalf on third and 14 and he's got the first down.
Phil Haynes again at RG. Gabe Jackson has his helmet with him standing on sidelines, so this may just be a rotation.
Collier with a QB hit on this play…..
Another three-and-out.

Six punts to start this game.
no points only punts today in Seattle
Mike Jackson won't stop 'til he gets enough (tackles). 🙂

Pete Carroll on pre-game radio show on @SeattleSports says DK Metcalf "came out of nowhere, came out of the ashes, lit the place up'' in Friday's practice. Carroll tried to keep that close to vest to rest of media Friday.
Kam 🤝 DK

Welcome back, @KamChancellor!
Seahawks GM John Schneider on @SeattleSports on DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett playing today. Says there could be a pitch count:
Seahawks GM John Schneider on pregame show on @SeattleSports says trainer David Stricklin told him this DK Metcalf "is just built different and he totally is. Unbelievable. Had a real nice practice and feels confident.''

Get a lead early….
Cliff, Kym and Bruce Irvin all just posed for a photo together. Most Seahawks coming over on way off field from warmups to shake hands with Avril and Chancellor.
DK Metcalf far side of field doing some early warmups.
Receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both active for the Seahawks Sunday for their showdown against the 6-1 New York Giants.
Each was listed as questionable on Friday with Metcalf dealing with a knee injury suffered last Sunday and Lockett nursing hamstring and oblique injuries.
But Seattle’s list of inactive players did not include either one, so each will play.
Seattle’s list of inactives is: WR Penny Hart, CB Sidney Jones IV, S Teez Tabor, FB/LB Nick Bellore, OL Jake Curhan, DT Myles Adams and RB Tony Jones Jr.
Bellore (concussion) had already been ruled out and Hart (hamstring) was doubtful. Jones was questionable with a groin injury.
The others are all healthy scratches.
Notable among the active players aside from Lockett and Metcalf are guards Gabe Jackson (knee/hip) and Phil Haynes (concussion), who had each been listed as questionable due to injuries; OLB Darrell Taylor, who had been questionable with a groin injury; and DL Poona Ford, who had been questionable with an ankle.
Also, 2019 first-round pick L.J. Collier is active for the first time this year after being activated to the 53-man roster earlier this week.
With Collier being active, Adams is inactive for the first time in four weeks.
