The Seattle Seahawks continued their strong first half of the 2022 season with a 27-13 victory in Week 8 over the New York Giants. The win sends the Seahawks to a 5-3 record and gives them sole possession of first place in the NFC West.

Offensive spotlight: Geno Smith‘s four big-time throws led to an 80.0-plus passing grade on first review. The veteran signal-caller finished with two passing touchdowns and a 104.2 passer rating.

Defensive spotlight: On 58 snaps, safety Ryan Neal is on track to earn his second-highest defensive grade of the season. He was a prominent factor in run defense, where he tallied three tackles overall, two defensive stops and a tackle for loss.

Rookie spotlight: Tariq Woolen nearly collected his fifth interception of the season but instead finished with just a forced incompletion while surrendering under 50 yards in coverage for the fifth consecutive week.

Offensive line spotlight: Rookie right tackle Abraham Lucas allowed just one total pressure on 41 pass-blocking snaps to help him deliver an 81.2 pass-blocking grade on first review.
