Colt McCoy leads the New York Giants to surprise win over the Seahawks

Veteran quarterback Colt McCoy and the Giants defense were the stars as the Seahawks suffered a shock defeat on Sunday. “Well, I’ll tell you what it was complimentary football, the whole game. The Defence played lights out.

“Russell’s such a good quarterback, and we knew we were going to have our hands full with their defense. You know, I was definitely rusty in the first half.

“And we started running the football and I kind of settled down. But there’s something really special about this team, and I’m proud to be a part of it….you got to count your blessings.

“It’s a tight-knit group. Even though we have all of our COVID restrictions. Guys care about each other, they come to work every day. I’m the oldest guy on the team. So to see these guys work to see how much they care about this. We’re well-coached.

“I’m proud to be standing out here representing them tonight…feels really good,” McCoy said after last night’s win.

McCoy went 12 for 22, throwing for 1o5 yards with 1 passing touchdown against the NFC West big boys. The Giants are slated to take on Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins’ Arizona Cardinals this weekend.

Another win on the trot will cement the Giants’ spot at the top of the NFC East table. Easier said than done, though.
