November 11, 2012, 3:58 pm
Marshawn Lynch runs for 124 yards and the Seahawks defense holds the Jets to 185 total yards as Seattle defeats New York 28-7 at Century Link Stadium.
While both Jets quarterbacks faltered, Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson had one of his best games of the season, recording a QB rating of 131.0, his highest since a mid-October game against the Patriots.
Wilson only completed twelve passes, but threw for 188 yards and two touchdowns.
One of those touchdown passes came midway through the first quarter when he found Golden Tate down the left sideline, who made a spectacular grab for the 38-yard touchdown.
The Jets lone touchdown came late in the first quarter when a Mike DeVito sack forced the ball out of Wilson's hand. Muhammad Wilkerson proceed to take the fumble 21-yards to even up the game 7-7.
Seattle scored once more before the half when Jeremy Kerley muffed a Steven Hauschka punt that gave the Seahawks the ball at the Jets 42. Eight plays later, Marshawn Lynch pounded in the one-yard touchdown, giving Seattle the 14-7 lead.
Seattle would find the endzone two more times in the 4th quarter, the first on a 31-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Sidney Rice down the right seam.

The second would come shortly after Jason Jones recovered a Mark Sanchez fumble near midfield. After penalties forced Seattle into a 1st and Goal situation from the 23, Wilson handed the ball off to Tate, who rolled out to the left before throwing to Rice who was open in the back of the endzone.

The Jets offense would stall once more before the Seahawks took over and killed the remaining 7:05 left on the clock to preserve the 28-7 victory.
Lynch finished the day with 124 yards on 27 carries.
Tim Tebow and Sanchez combined to go 12/25 with 101 yards and one INT.
Seattle improves to 6-4 on the season, and 5-0 at home.
The Seahawks have a bye week now before traveling to Miami to take on the Dolphins November 25th.
