    Seahawks go down 17-0, rally to win 34-31​

    New York -- It wasn't easy. It wasn't pretty.​
    But a win is a win.​

    After stopping the Giants on two straight runs, the Seahawks gave up an 80-yard bomb to Gonzalez and fell behind 7-0 in the Hard Knocks game of the week.​

    A tough front seven for the Giants held strong and sent the Seattle offense 3 and out on the following possession.​

    The Giants against manufactured a drive through the air, ending on a TD pass to Beckum to go up 14-0.​

    Tynes would add a field goal to put New York up 17-0, but Leon Washington took the enusing kickoff back for a touchdown, and by doing so, slowly shifted the momentum.​

    Walter Thurmond III picked off a Jason Campbell pass and Marshawn Lynch took the next play into the endzone with a 21 yard run.​

    With under a minute left, the Giants placed a beautiful punt on the Seahawk 3. A handoff to Lynch went for no gain as Seattle looked to get some breathing room. On second down, Whitehurst completed a pass to Watkins who reeled it in at the 10 but then dropped it. On the next play, Leon Washington coughed the ball up, resulting in a Giants TD.​

    24-14 at the half.​

    Seattle put together a long drive in the third quarter, scoring on a run from Leon Washington to pull within 3.​

    But after a Corey Mays run, the Giants were back in business and Mays finished it off himself with a 6-yard TD run.​

    The Seahawks came back two minutes later and Jeff Reed made a 48 yard field goal to end the third quarter.​

    31-24 after 3​

    Seattle then put together a long, time consuming drive, ending on a 1-yard run by fullback Michael Robinson.​

    With under 2 minutes left, the Giants had a chance to put together a game-winning drive. New York came out in a formation that killed the Seahawks all game, but the Seattle D stepped up and stuff the run.​

    On the next play, Campbell dropped back to pass and threw it over the middle where Aaron Curry was sitting. Curry jumped and picked the ball off. Curry returned the fumble inside the Giant 20 and fumbled, but he was already down.​

    Marshawn Lynch picked up a first down two plays later and the Seahawks burned the clock until Jeff Reed kicked the game-winner as time expired.​
