The New York Giants’ slim playoff chances are in the balance on Sunday, and it doesn’t get much more difficult than a road trip to face the Seattle Seahawks.
New York (3-5) are in desperate need of a big performance in order to get their season back on track, and Jason Pierre-Paul questioned the team’s heart this week.
However, the defensive star insisted that he believes the team will pull together and produce when it really matters, but the pressure is certainly on as another loss could effectively end their hopes.
The Seahawks (5-3) are also under pressure as they currently sit two games behind the Arizona Cardinals for the division lead, and with the 49ers still in contention, it could be an interesting final stretch of the season as all three teams look to push for the post-season.
These two teams have split their last four contests, all of which were decided by a touchdown or less, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes that his team is making progress after some difficult games.
Carroll could have some help in both the offensive and defensive units as players are starting to return from injury, but it is the defense that has particularly stepped up in recent weeks.
That could be bad news for the Giants who have lost three straight by an average of 17.7 points after winning three in a row, and in contrast, they are being struck by an injury crisis rather than seeing their players return.
Starting cornerback Prince Amukamara joins fellow corners Walter Thurmond III and Trumaine McBride on injured reserve due to a torn biceps, while running back Rashad Jennings’ status is uncertain as he has missed the last three games with a knee injury.
