It wasn’t a pretty win, but in the end, it was a decisive one.

Earl Thomas and the rest of the Seattle defense suffocated the New York Giants on Sunday, allowing the Seahawks to pull away in the second half for a 24-7 win.

Just how thoroughly did the Legion of Boom outplay the Giants? New York managed only 177 yards of offense for the entire game—131 through the air, 46 on the ground.

The only score from New York came early in the game, and it was nearly thwarted by the outstretched arms of No. 29. Take a look at this breakdown from Brian Baldinger as Earl comes flying from across the field, and comes within inches of an incredible defensive play.

It was the last scoring play the Giants would have the entire game.

With the win, Earl and Co. are 4-2, just a game back from the surprising NFC West leading Los Angeles Rams.
