SEATTLE (AP) — Eli Manning threw for three first-half touchdowns, Ahmad Bradshaw added a pair of rushing touchdowns and the New York Giants routed the Seattle Seahawks 41-7 on Sunday.
Manning and the Giants (6-2) jumped to a 35-0 halftime lead, overwhelming the banged up Seahawks and staking claim as maybe the best team in the NFC halfway through the season.
Manning threw touchdowns of 46 yards to Hakeem Nicks, 6 yards to Steve Smith and 5 yards to Kevin Boss. Bradshaw scored on runs of 2 and 4 yards.
The Giants rolled up 487 yards of offense against the Seahawks, who gave up 545 total yards last week to Oakland.
Charlie Whitehurst made his first NFL start for Seattle (4-4) and struggled. He was 12 of 23 for 113 yards and two interceptions.
