Game Recap

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.

Quarter Recaps

First Quarter

In a nutshell: Seahawks 7, Jets 7. The Jets got the ball first, but the Seahawks scored first – as Golden Tate went up over cornerback Kyle Wilson to take a Russell 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.

Player of the quarter: Wilson. The Seahawks’ rookie QB was involved in both scoring plays – the good, and the not so good.

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

Number of the quarter: 2. The number of Mark Sanchez passes batted or tipped incomplete by the Seahawks – one by Red Bryant, one by Alan Branch.

Second Quarter

In a nutshell: Seahawks 14-7. The Seahawks turned the ball over on the first play of the quarter, as Marshawn Lynch fumbled. 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.

Player of the quarter: Sherman. In addition to his timely, point-saving pick, the second-year cornerback also broke up Sanchez’s third-down pass to Clyde Gates on the Jets’ next possession.

Play of the quarter: Sherman’s interception, on a pass 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.

Number of the quarter: 4. As in a forlorn four, as the Jets’ four possessions after their TD return of a Wilson fumble ended in two turnovers and two three-and-outs.

Third Quarter

In a nutshell: Seahawks 14-7. No scoring in the quarter, as each team punted twice.

Player of the quarter: Marshawn Lynch. He touched the ball on six of the Seahawks’ 16 plays in the quarter for 23 yards.

Play of the quarter: Russell Wilson’s third-down pass to tight end Zach Miller. It was significant because Miller eluded one tackler and then ran over cornerback Ellis Lankster to gain 9 yards on a third-and-7 play.

Number of the quarter: 86. That’s Miller’s uniform number, as he also had another 9-yarder to go with the second-effort play on third down.

Fourth Quarter

In a nutshell: Seahawks 28-7. 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 Russell Wilson pass with cornerback Ellis 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 Marshawn Lynch on the second play of the fourth quarter. The Seahawks came right back as cornerback Richard Sherman got a fumble-forcing sack that was recovered by Jason Jones and six plays later – on a first-and-goal from the 23 – wide receiver Golden Tate threw a TD pass to Rice.

Player of the quarter: Rice. He hadn’t caught a pass in the first three quarter, then caught two TD passes in the final quarter.

Plays of the quarter: Sherman’s sack, of course. But also Tate’s TD pass. Talk about going deep into the playbook, on both sides of the ball.

Number of the quarter: 6. As in six victories. The last time the Seahawks were 6-4 was in 2007, which also in the last time they finished with a winning record.
