RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks last played the New York Giants two years ago, and a lot has changed since then. Gone are such Giants stars as Tiki Barber and Jeremy Shockey, and Plaxico Burress is suspended for Sunday's game. Instead, the Seahawks have a different challenge: stopping the Giants' burly running back Brandon Jacobs. The 6-foot-4, 264-pound bulldozer is the Giants' leading rusher. Still, Seattle's defense has rebounded nicely in the last two games against San Francisco and St. Louis. (---) Seahawks wide receiver Koren Robinson did not participate in practice yesterday, still bothered by a balky knee. Robinson's status might solve some of the surplus that coach Mike Holmgren suddenly has at the position, with the expected return of Bobby Engram and Deion Branch this week for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. (---) In their last meeting with the Giants, Seahawks' quarterback Matt Hasselbeck tied his career high with five touchdown passes. That was a 42-30 Seattle win in 2006, a game where the Seahawks led 42-3 at one point.
