There have been better weeks to be a Seahawks fan, but there have also been worse weeks. Those worse weeks are concentrated to some degree in the 90s. This season has had very few bad weeks. If it all goes right, this will be the last week that is bad.
The Seahawks take on a Giants team this week that is in some degree of disarray. The Giants are a team that seems to spend a large portion of their seasons in disarray. Eli Manning isn’t good enough. Tom Coughlin is going to get fired. What’s wrong with this defense? Then next year they win the big one. God dammit.
The Seahawks get a preview of where they would play the Super Bowl if they played in it. Assuming they win out, or that some combinations of wins and key opponent losses grant them home field throughout the playoffs, Met Life Stadium and Century Link are the only remaining stadiums that the Seahawks will play in this year.
Percy Harvin, WR (Hip) – Out, in all likelihood

For much of this season the Seahawks have been a near-sweep as it relates to advanced stats and position groups. This week, the Giants have a backup running back that is better than Robert Turbin in terms of advanced analysis of production. So take that!
Eli Manning throws three interceptions.
Richard Sherman catches one of them.
The Giants get booed in their own stadium in the first half.
Seahawks win 35-10.
