Player of the quarter: D.J. Ware gave new meaning to the term running out the clock, as he carried 13 times on the Giants’ final possession.
Play of the quarter: Whitehurst’s TD pass to Obomanu, of course.
Number of the quarter: 74. The number of points allowed by the Seahawks in their past two games.
The bigger picture: The Seahawks took the kickoff following the Giants’ second field goal of the third quarter and moved 70 yards in three plays to their first points – Charlie Whitehurst’s 36-yard TD pass to WR Ben Obomanu. RB Marshawn Lynch added a 26-yard run to the series.
When the Giants got the ball back, Sage Rosenfels took over for Eli Manning, who was only 4 of 11 for 58 yards in the third quarter after a 17-of-21, 232-yard, three-TD pass first half. The Giants then began to “Ware” out the Seahawks, as D.J. Ware took over for Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs, and ran for 7, 5, 8 and 9 yards on consecutive plays. Jacobs return for a 7-yard run, then it was back to Ware for 4, 6, 5 and 0 yards. Then it was Jacobs for a pair of 3-yard runs. Back came Ware, who ran for 5 yards on third-and-4. The Giants then ran out all but the final 34 seconds.
