Without starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in the lineup, the Seahawks headed into the locker room trailing by 35 after the first half of the team’s Week Nine matchup against the Giants concluded.
Filling in for Hasselbeck was Charlie Whitehurst. Making his first regular-season start of his career, the 28-year-old Whitehurst completed nine of 19 attempts for 64 yards. He also threw two interceptions.
While Whitehurst struggled, the Giants’ Eli Manning shined. The seven-year veteran’s three first-half touchdowns place Manning one aerial score away from tying his single-game best as a professional.
At the half, the visiting New York Giants lead the Seattle Seahawks 35-0.
