Here are five interesting moments in sports you may have missed this week.
Can you imagine Harry Carson, Lawrence Taylor, Leonard Marshall or Carl Banks being part of a New York Giants’ defense that gave up 350 yards rushing?

As much as some would like to point to injuries as the main cause for the New York Giants’ (3-5) inferior record, Big Blue will be facing an opponent in the Seattle Seahawks who have listed 14 players on their injury report.
The New York Giants (3-5) will limp across country, literally and figuratively, to face the defending world champion Seattle Seahawks (5-3) at CenturyLink Field. The Giants lost their third game in a row 40-24 at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, while the Seahawks held off the Oakland Raiders by a closer than expected 30-24 score.

Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable.

What does Seattle have to do in order to win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history?
