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.
