- The Seattle Seahawks (4-3) are 3-point home favorites over the New York Giants (6-1)
- New York has started the season with a 6-1 record for the first since 2008
- The Week 8 game on FOX will kick off from Lumen Stadium on Sunday, October 30 at 4:25pm ET
Two of the league’s most pleasant surprises will square off in Seattle on Sunday. While the New York Giants escaped years of losing by hiring new head coach Brian Daboll, the Seahawks turned around their organization by letting 71-year-old Pete Carroll ship out Russell Wilson and rebuild.

Daboll keeps winning
If I told you Brian Daboll was dating Lizzo, you’d probably believe me. That’s how popular the Giants’ first-year head coach is in the Big Apple after guiding his club to a fourth-straight victory on Sunday. Saquon Barkley came alive in the fourth quarter of the 23-17 win over the Jaguars with 10 carries for 72 yards. The NFL’s second-leading rusher will now face a Seahawks team that has allowed the most rushing yards (1048) in the entire league.
That could also be good news for fourth-year quarterback Daniel Jones, who is averaging a career-high 49.4 rush yards per game after running for 110 yards and a score on Sunday.

Pete’s master plan
After being the target of Twitter ridicule for years, Pete Carroll deserves a standing ovation this season. The Seahawks are 4-3 following a 37-23 victory over the Chargers on Sunday. Despite losing DK Metcalf to a knee injury, Geno Smith stayed hot, hitting speedster Marquise Goodwin for two deep-strike TDs.
Rookie Kenneth Walker ran for 168 yards and two touchdowns, reaching 22.09 mph (the fastest speed by a ball carrier in the NFL this season) on his 74-yard TD run. Funnily enough, New York has the second-worst defense versus run (after Seattle), permitting 1011 yards through seven games.
Seahawks vs Giants
Seattle is favored by 3 points at home and the game total is 45.5 points. That’s right – just like last week versus the Jaguars, the G-Men are once again underdogs despite being one of only two 6-win teams in the NFL. Daniel Jones has led the Giants on five game-winning drives this season as he pushes for a new contract. And all six of Big Blue’s victories were by eight or fewer points, so we can expect another close one on Sunday.
While the Seahawks have allowed the most rushing yards in the league, Pete Carroll’s young defense has looked much friskier of late. They put the clamps on Austin Ekeler (31 rushing yards, TD) in Week 7 while sacking Justin Herbert three times and intercepting him once.

This game feels like a shootout so we’ll take the OVER on 45.5 points. In a battle of two of the best coaches in the NFL, we like the Giants to come out on top. With DK Metcalf out of the lineup, defensive coordinator Wink Martindale will scheme up ways to stop Geno Smith with the game on the line.
Final Score Prediction: Giants 27, Seattle 24
