EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Marshawn Lynch scored on a twisting 2-yard run, Seattle picked off five Eli Manning passes and manhandled the New York Giants 23-0 Sunday.

The Seahawks (12-2) have won six times on the road, a franchise best. They're closing in on the NFC West title and their best overall record; they went 13-3 in 2005 before losing to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

This season's Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium and unless they collapse in their final two games at home, where they are undefeated, the Seahawks will be the NFC favourite to reach the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city.

New York (5-9) will be deep into its off-season by then with its first losing record since 2004.

It was Seattle's first shutout since a 58-0 romp over Arizona on Dec. 9 last year.
