Hot Giants return home to face Seahawks

Why to watch
Seattle has the NFL's best first-down run defense, and the Giants love to steamroll teams with their two-back approach. Tarvaris Jackson comes in off a rare 300-yard day, but faces a tough pass rush that should get another boost with Justin Tuck back on the field.
