Charlie Whitehurst came off bench to lead Seahawks' win
When Tarvaris Jackson went down with the Seahawks clinging to a 16-14 lead over the New York Giants on the road, Seattle had to turn to Whitehurst, the man Jackson supplanted when the Seahawks brought him in during the off-season.
Whitehurst, who stepped up last year in Week 17 to guide the Seahawks into the playoffs as the NFC West champs, was up to the task. He hit on 11 of 19 passes for 149 yards and one touchdown, and he didn't turn the ball over.
He directed Seattle to a couple of field goals before connecting with Doug Baldwin on a 27-yard pass, but it was a 94-yard interception return by Brandon Browner that sealed the deal.
If Jackson, who suffered a right shoulder injury early in the third quarter and didn't return, is healthy enough to play the next time out, however, he probably will, which would make Whitehurst a dicey addition to any fantasy roster.
