12th man brings the noise as Hawks dominate in NYC
Hard to believe that Byron Maxwell is essentially a 4th string cornerback for the Hawks. His second interception of the game on Eli Manning set the stage for a Russell Wilson to Doug Baldwin TD pass, to give the Hawks a 23-0 lead early in the 4th.
The Giants fans started streaming for the exits, while the thousands of Seahawks fans started chanting “Sea-HAWKS!”
Many Giants fans were cleverly disguised as empty seats. It’s a forgettable season for New York. Eli Manning has thrown five interceptions, two to Maxwell, and two more to Richard Sherman, and one to Earl Thomas. Manning leads the NFL with 25 INTs on the season.
The Seahawks raise their record to 12-2 on the season, and take a huge step toward nailing down home field advantage in the playoffs with the NFC’s top seed.
The 12th Man is very well represented here. Giants fans tell me this is one of the most impressive showing of opposing fans this season, rivaling Pittsburgh Steelers fans.
Many of these Hawk fans tell me they have already made plans for a return trip in February, for the BIG game–the game that I don’t dare mention by name.
For Seahawks fans in New York, I invite you to come join me for a live victory celebration, tomorrow morning, live on Q13 FOX News at the WPIX-TV outdoor studio at 42nd and 2nd in midtown Manhattan. I will be live starting at 9am ET (6am PT). I hope you will come join us! Go Hawks
