EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Russell Wilson threw three second-half touchdown passes and the Seattle Seahawk limited the New York Giants’ receiver depleted offense to 177 yards in a 24-7 win on Sunday.

Wilson hit Doug Baldwin with a go-ahead 22-yard touchdown pass midway through the third quarter. He put the game away with a 38-yard TD throw to Paul Richardson on a play that had to be reviewed because of simultaneous possession and he closed out the scoring with a 1-yard toss to Jimmy Graham with 2:14 to go.

The Seahawks (4-2) limited the Giants (1-6) to 46 yards rushing, 14 first downs and just 24:34 in time of possession. The defense only forced one turnover, but the fumble by Eli Manning led to the Richardson touchdown.

The Giants, who stunned Denver on Sunday night for their first win, were only in this game because their defense made plays and limited the Seattle to a field goal in the first half despite being on the field for more than 20 minutes.

The unit set up the Giants’ touchdown with a forced fumble and a 32-yard return by Landon Collins to the Seahawks 17. It set up a 5-yard TD toss to Evan Engram, the only receiver who could get open on a consistent basis.

Blair Walsh had kicked a 39-yard field goal late in the first half to get the Seahawks within 7-3.

Seattle took the lead with a four-play 59-yard drive that featured passes of 29 yards to Graham and 23 yards to Richardson by Wilson, who was 27 of 39 for 334 yards.

The Giants had a chance to tie the game early in the fourth quarter but a 47-yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas was wide right.

Graham, who had dropped a touchdown pass on the first play of the second quarter, caught one late.

Despite being outgained 222-42 and having the ball just over nine minutes, the Giants led 7-3 at the half.

Manning’s TD pass to Engram (six catches for 60 yards) came two plays after rookie defensive end Avery Moss knocked the ball out of Thomas Rawls’ hands and safety Landon Collins returned it 32 yards to the Seahawks 17. Manning finished 19 of 39 for 134 yards.
