There’s not a great deal to say about this game.
The Seahawks achieved their first blowout victory in what feels like forever. It was a glorious sight to see Geno Smith trotting onto the field, knowing there wouldn’t be any fourth quarter stresses and strains this week.
This was a game that needed to be won handsomely and it was. No messing about. No unnecessarily close scoreline. Just a hammering.
That said, the New York Jets were an utter shambles.
They appear destined to go 0-16 and frankly don’t deserve to be rewarded with Trevor Lawrence.
Aside from a few functioning drives and one fantastic interception from Marcus Maye, they were hopeless.
They missed three field goals before half-time to suck any energy out of their team and came out in the second half like they were all preoccupied by which movie they’d watch on the plane-ride home.
They extended drives for the Seahawks with stupid penalties and ill-discipline, appeared to have no answers on either side of the ball and they just lack talent.
They are a mess. I feel sorry for Clemson’s superstar QB if they’re going to pin all their hopes on him salvaging anything from this.
Seattle’s best moments included D.K. Metcalf’s superb route on his touchdown and some impressive running from Chris Carson. They ran the ball well overall and produced big numbers.
Yet they also dropped three easy interceptions, Russell Wilson still doesn’t feel like he’s returning to top form and there were some other sloppy moments.
Ultimately the game felt flat for all concerned. The Jets want to keep losing for Lawrence. Seattle just wants to roll on to the next three games where their season will be decided.
It felt like a bye week for the fans. No need for the booze or ibuprofen this week (whichever you turn to). There wasn’t much to worry about, or any real excitement. I’m not sure even a 40-3 cleanses the disappointment of last weeks loss, especially after Arizona hammered the Giants in New York earlier today.
Washington’s fearsome defensive line will be a completely different challenge next week. Seattle will need to win that game though because guess who the Rams are playing next week?
The New York Jets.
