Jet lag? Not on this Sunday

Published on November 11, 2012 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Led by Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and a defense that kept the Jets out of the end zone, the Seahawks slapped the Jets with a 28-7 loss at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.

It was business as usual for the Seahawks on Sunday, as Marshawn Lynch ran for 124 yards to surpass 1,000 for the season and rookie quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes.

But there also were ample doses of the unusual, as wide receiver Golden Tate threw a touchdown pass and cornerback Richard Sherman had a fumble-forcing sack as well as a key interception.

As a result, the Seahawks slapped the visiting New York Jets with a 28-7 loss at CenturyLink Field on a cold, wet Sunday afternoon.

The victory lifted the Seahawks to 6-4 as they enter their bye week. They are 6-4 for the first time since 2007, which also was the last time the Seahawks had a winning record (10-6). The past four seasons, they didn’t win their sixth game until Week 14 (last year), Week 13 (in 2010) and, well, never because they went 5-11 in 2009 and 4-12 in 2008.

After their bye, the Seahawks travel to Miami (Nov. 25) and Chicago (Dec. 2) before playing three of their final four games at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks took a 14-7 lead at the half, a fumble-forcing sack of Wilson that was returned for a touchdown by the Jets and another lost fumble by Lynch.

The Jets got the ball first, but the Seahawks scored first – as Golden Tate went up over cornerback Kyle Wilson to take a Wilson pass at the 2-yard line and walked into the end zone; but not before linebacker Mike Morgan stopped the Jets’ Shonn Greene for no gain on fourth-and-1 from the Seahawks’ 40. The Jets got even when Damon Harrison got to Wilson for a fumble-forcing sack and Muhammad Wilkerson returned the ball 21 yards for a TD with 2:50 left.

Tate’s TD grab was just the latest in a series of tough catches and impressive plays that have produced his team-leading six touchdowns.

The Seahawks also turned the ball over on the first play of the quarter, on Lynch’s fumble. But Richard Sherman made sure the Jets didn’t score when he intercepted Mark Sanchez’s third-down pass near the goal line. The Seahawks took the lead when Lynch scored on a 1-yard run with 2:04 left in the half. The Seahawks got the ball at the Jets’ 42-yard line when Kam Chancellor recovered a muffed punt by Jeremy Kerley.

In addition to his timely, point-saving pick, Sherman, the second-year cornerback, also broke up Sanchez’s third-down pass to Clyde Gates on the Jets’ next possession. On his interception, Sanchez was trying to get to tight end Dustin Keller. Sherman read the third-and-goal pass from the 6 and jumped it to save at least three points.

There was no scoring in the third quarter, as each team punted twice. But tight end Zach Miller took a third-down pass from Wilson and eluded one tackler and then ran over cornerback Ellis Lankster to gain 9 yards on a third-and-7 play.

The Seahawks atoned for the lack of productivity in the third quarter by scoring on the third play of the fourth quarter – as Sidney Rice made his first catch of the game a lunging 31-yarder of a Wilson pass with Lankster all over him. The TD pass capped a seven-play, 81-yard drive that began in the third quarter, but also included a 17-yard run by Lynch on the second play of the fourth quarter.

The Seahawks came right back as Sherman got a fumble-forcing sack that was recovered by Jason Jones and six plays later – on a first-and-goal from the 23 – Tate threw his TD pass to Rice.
