In this strangest of NFL seasons in this weirdest of years, here's a matchup of division leaders you wouldn't expect: Seattle hosting the New York Giants. New York is 4-7, has yet to beat a team with a winning record, and enters the most difficult portion of its schedule. ''If you win your division, you win your division,'' Carroll says, and he knows: Seattle went 7-9 in 2010 and won the NFC West, then beat New Orleans in a playoff game.
Derek Carr has been here before, on a winless team deep into a season and hungry for an elusive victory. ''It's a matter of time before they get things going and do things the right way,'' Carr said. Carr was referring to last season, when Sam Darnold and the Jets rolled past the Raiders 34-3 at MetLife Stadium.
