Jets sleepless in Seattle, lose 28-7

Despite a decent defensive effort, the Jets were defeated soundly by the Seahawks.

The New York Jets offensive production on Sunday in Seattle versus the Seahawks was just that - offensive.

Gang Green managed just 185 yards of offense as they were defeated 28-7 by Seattle to drop to 3-6 on the season.

Mark Sanchez had another poor showing, completing 9-of-22 (41 percent) for 124 yards with a fumble and interception. Shonn Greene never got going, carrying 15 times for 58 yards, while Tim Tebow was "unleashed," completing all three of his passing attempts and rushing four times for 14 yards.

The offense was embarrassing, only getting into the red zone once - Sanchez threw an interception at the Seahawks three-yard line on a pass intended for Dustin Keller. The Jets has five drives of just three plays, punted seven times and had three turnovers, including a costly muffed punt by Jeremy Kerley that led to a Seattle touchdown.

Defensively, the Jets much maligned unit could not stop the run - they were ranked 29th coming into the game - as Marshawn Lynch ran 27 times for 124 yards and a score.

On a brighter note, Gang Green had four sacks, a third of their entire season total, and had a fumble caused by Mike DeVito returned for a touchdown by Muhammad Wilkerson, but those were the only points the team scored all game.

But despite the effort, the Jets allowed three big plays for Seattle touchdowns - a 38-yarder from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate, a 31-yard strike from Wilson to Sidney Rice and a 23-yard pass from Tate to Rice on a trick play.

New York heads back east before going to the Midwest to take on St. Louis on Sunday afternoon in what is sure to be deemed yet another must-win game.
