Good morning, 12s. Happy Victory Monday! Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Dec. 14 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Seahawks 40, Jets 3
The Seahawks recovered from their first home loss of the season with a dominant 40-3 win over the Jets. New York scored the first three points of the game, but that was all it mustered against Seattle's defense. Russell Wilson led the way with 206 passing yards and four touchdowns despite being pulled before the fourth quarter with the lead in hand. DK Metcalf, Freddie Swain, Will Dissly and David Moore each caught a touchdown.
