Seattle will have a tough time against a tough Giants defense this week, especially with the loss of quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck suffered a concussion in last week’s 33-3 loss to Oakland where he was sacked eight times. Charlie Whitehurst will make his first NFL start in his place, with questionable value for Seattle’s receivers this week including resurgent wide out Mike Williams. The Giants rank 2nd in passing defense, allowing only 177.9 yards per game, while they also host a ferocious pass rush that has knocked five opposing quarterbacks out of games this season, including 24 sacks.

Seattle offensive guard Ben Hamilton was also placed on injured reserve after suffering a serious concussion against Oakland. Hamilton has had a history of concussion issues, causing doctors to advise the season-ending decision.
