In a must win for the New York Jets, the Seattle Seahawks took advantage of costly New York turnovers and a pathetic New York offense to defeat Rex Ryan's club 28-7. The win moves Seattle to 6-4 and drops the Jets to 3-6.
The score was tied 7-7 midway through the second quarter when the Jets blew a chance to use Tim Tebow on the goal line due to a Dustin Keller false start. Tebow then exited for Mark Sanchez who followed with a crushing interception by the right sideline in the front of the end zone. The Jets never regained control.
A Jeremy Kerley muffed punt late in the first half led to a Seattle touchdown, and a 14-7 lead. The score remained there until the early fourth quarter when Seattle broke it open. The Hawks highlight was a Golden Tate TD pass to Sidney Rice to put the game away.
Marshawn Lynch, held down for much of the game, ended up with 124 rushing yards, which was a clear byproduct of the Jets inability to muster up anything offensively all day.
