Giants’ attempt at ‘tush push’ play leaves two injured in brutal loss to Seahawks

The New York Giants lost two starters on one play Monday night that everyone around the league seems to be trying to perfect in a brutal 24-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. 

Center John Michael Schmitz and tight end Daniel Bellinger left with shoulder and knee injuries, respectively, after the Giants’ first drive of the night ended in a turnover on downs while trying what’s known as the “tush push.”

NFL fans have likely seen the play from the Philadelphia Eagles — a push off quarterback Jalen Hurts on short-yardage situations that usually results in a first down or touchdown. It’s massive success rate for Philly has led other teams to try the quarterback sneak play during games, but the Giants didn’t work it out Monday night. 

The Eagles went 37-for-41 last season when Hurts tucked the ball and pushed forward for a first down or touchdown, better than any team in the NFL by a mile.
