Through the season's first three games, the NY Giants have left their fans worried about what to expect from their team's performance throughout the 2023 campaign after suffering multiple injuries and with a challenging schedule ahead.
Big Blue is coming off a two-game road trip out west, which they split after barely escaping the Cardinals with a victory and struggled to hang with the Niners without their star running back Saquon Barkley. The G-Men must shift gears to Monday Night as they prepare to host the Seahawks, a team loaded with talent.
Seattle enters this matchup 2-1 with recent back-to-back wins over the Lions and Panthers after dropping their home opener to the Rams. They will look to extend their current win streak to three on Monday. With that being said, let's take a look at three Seahawks players who will create significant problems for the Giants in Week 4:
3. RB Kenneth Walker II
Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker II came onto the scene last year as a rookie after veteran Rashaad Penny suffered a season-ending injury in Week 5. Last season, the second-round pick stepped up and rushed for 1,050 yards and nine touchdowns and certainly impressed Seattle's coaching staff.
The former Michigan State Spartan has been off to a hot start this season. In three games, Walker has rushed for 204 yards and four touchdowns on 275 attempts. The second-year running back rushed for two touchdowns in the last two games. Walker was most recently named the NFC Offensive Player Of The Week for his performance against the Panthers.
This season, the Giants' defense has allowed 138 rushing yards per game, the fourth-most in the league. Big Blue will rely on their d-line to stop the run, which has been a problem this season. The Giants have struggled against opposing running backs Tony Pollard, James Conner, and Christian McCaffrey. If this problem continues, we can expect Walker to dominate on Monday night.
