Seahawks 38, Giants 17: First impressions | Seahawks Blog | Seattle Times
Jerry Brewer: Earl Thomas’ end-zone interception in the third quarter should be considered the play of the game. With the score tied at 17 and the Giants mounting their only decent drive of the second half, quarterback Eli Manning threw a pass into the right corner of the end zone — Richard Sherman’s corner — the same place where Sherman had “The Tip” in the NFC Championship Game last season. This time, rookie Odell Beckham Jr., who had an incredible game (seven catches, 108 yards), went against Sherman. As both players went after the football, Beckham held Sherman (there was no flag) to restrict how high the cornerback could jump. But Sherman’s coverage was so tight that Beckham could only manage getting a hand on the ball himself. Beckham wound up tipping the pass into the arms of safety Earl Thomas, who returned it to the Seattle 42-yard line. It was the turning point of the game. From that point on, the Seahawks dominated.
