The Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants are not praying a pretty one up in Seattle. The Seahawks lead 5-0 headed into halftime courtesy of a field goal and a safety. The Seahawks secured the safety with under 30 seconds remaining in the second quarter when they blocked a Giants punt from the end zone.

The ball bounced right at a Seattle defender but then bounced off him and rolled out of bounds as Seahawks defenders tried to jump on it. The Seahawks got one more opportunity to score on the free kick following the safety. They had 24 seconds from the Giants 48, but couldn’t get anything going.
