Russell Wilson lamented “one of those days” after the Seattle Seahawks were stunned by the New York Giants on Sunday.
The Seahawks fell to a 17-12 loss to mark perhaps the worst result of the Pete Carroll era.
The Giants went into the game 4-7, while the NFC West-leading Seahawks were looking to extend their advantage.
But the Giants – using backup quarterback Colt McCoy – had other ideas against Wilson and the Seahawks, who were outscored 14-0 in the third quarter.
Wilson struggled on home turf in Seattle, where he was sacked five times and finished 27-of-43 passing for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

“It was one of those days,” said Wilson. “For me, I’ll go study the film and see where we can get better.
“I’m super confident about where we are, what we’re doing.
“I think that we’ve got to be cleaner. Hopefully, we get healthy again, we need to be healthy.
“That’s part of this game you know and you want your guys to be healthy across the board.”
The Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams are now level atop the NFC West with 8-4 records after the latter beat the Arizona Cardinals 38-28.
Coach Carroll admitted he had some soul-searching to do.
“It’s just an uncharacteristic feeling that we’re not putting any points on the board,” he said.
“I need to look at the film to figure out what the heck happened and why it was like that. It just isn’t like that.
“None of us have seen us play like that, so it was very difficult.”
