The Seattle Seahawks visited the Cleveland Browns in what turned into a barn-burning, 6-3 loss. The Seahawks had under 150 yards of offense and failed to take advantage of two late scoring opportunities.
Perhaps that was actually Seahawks fans setting their television sets on fire, not their barns.
The Seahawks were without starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson as he continues to rehabilitate a strained pectoral muscle. Marshawn Lynch also missed the game following an injury sustained in pregame drills.
The defense played well despite spending 40 minutes on the field. The offense, however, had their worst showing of the season.
Fans that felt the coaching staff wasn't giving Charlie Whitehurst a fair shake should be silent at this point. It does seem that the coaching staff was right with making Jackson the starting quarterback. Now fans are hoping he can return from injury for Sunday's contest with the Cincinnati Bengals.
