After winning four straight games, the Giants had no answer for Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks, who pulled away late in the second half in a 27-13 victory.

While the Giants never led in the game, they did find themselves in a 13-13 tie as late as the early stages of the fourth quarter when Graham Gano connected on a 45-yard field goal.

Unfortunately for the Giants they just couldn’t get their offense moving all afternoon. While he didn’t force any turnovers, Daniel Jones was constantly under siege, sacked five times, and threw for only 176 yards. The Seahawks did a tremendous job keeping Jones in the pocket, as he ran for only 20 yards on six carries.

Saquon Barkley was also bottled up, held to 53-yards on 20 carries.

In the fourth quarter, Geno Smith turned things onto another gear, and showed the Giants why this was not the same guy who was Eli Manning’s understudy, and not even remotely close to being the same guy who was drafted by the Jets in 2013.

This version of Geno Smith is more mature, accurate and driven. And he has a team that supports his every move.

On Seattle’s first touchdown drive of the fourth quarter, Smith was five-of-five for 75-yards including a arching 33-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett to put Seattle in front 20-13.

After the Giants muffed a punt return, Smith guided the Seahawks on a short field for another score. He hit Noah Fant for 16-yards to move the chains deeper into Giants territory. On the next play, Smith hit Kenneth Walker III in the flat for a walk-in touchdown to put Seattle up two scores.
