Any way you look at it, the Seattle Seahawks high-flying offense was grounded against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Seattle scored a season-low 12 points against the 5-7 Giants — the Seahawks' first defeat at Lumen Field in 2020.

Afterwards, QB Russell Wilson took full responsibility for his team's poor performance.

“If anybody’s critical, I’m going to be critical of myself first,” Wilson said, via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune.

“We’ve got to bet better. We’ve got to be cleaner. It starts with me. …I always start with me first, because you’ve got to look at yourself first. And I think for me, just trying to find a couple more drives here and there, that’s the reality.”

Wilson completed 27 of 43 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown, and one interception on Sunday. The Seahawks star also ran for 45 yards, committed a key intentional grounding penalty, lost a fumble, and was sacked five times by an impressive Giants defense. Throughout the game, he struggled to find a balance between keeping plays alive and avoiding debilitating tackles in the backfield.

“Obviously, you always want to eliminate sacks,” Wilson said. “You also don’t want to eliminate the key moments.”

The disappointing showing all but eliminates Wilson from the MVP discussion.

More importantly, the loss dropped them out of first place in the NFC West with four games remaining. After a 38-28 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles Rams (8-4, with tiebreaker), moved ahead of Seattle (8-4) in the competitive division. After Week 13, the Seahawks sit in the no. 5 spot in the NFC playoff picture.

Wilson, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and the Seattle offense will have a welcome opportunity to bounce back next Sunday when they host the winless New York Jets.
