The New York Jets came out of their bye week and offered up a dreadful performance, with their offense once again sabotaging a solid effort from the defense. The special teams also managed to deliver a nice gut-punch to the defense, giving the Seattle Seahawks a short field for their second touchdown drive of the day. Overall, the Jets were simply brutal in a 28-7 defeat that drops them to 3-6 on the 2012 season.

The Jets offense was shut out for the second time this season, with the only score of the day for the Jets being a fumble returned for a touchdown by Muhammad Wilkerson.

The Jets defense did everything it could to make it a competitive game. After the Jets came up short on a first down attempt on their first drive, the Seahawks scored in just two plays.The next score in the game came when Seattle had the ball, with Mike DeVito forcing a fumble as he sacked Russell Wilson and Wilkerson picked it up and ran it in for a touchdown. 

The tow teams were then held scoreless until Jeremy Kerley muffed a punt that Seattle recovered at the New York 42 yard line after the defense forced a three-and-out. That score came after tow offensive possessions that saw Mark Sanchez throw an interception on third and six at the Seahawks six yard line and the offense go three-and-out with field position on their own 49 yard line.

The Jets defense finally broke down in the fourth quarter, giving up two touchdowns that pushed the lead to 28-7. The final touchdown drive was set up by  a Mark Sanchez fumble that gave the Seahawks possession at the Jets 49 yard line. Mark Sanchez finished the day 9-for-22 passing for 124 yards, an interception and a fumble lost.

On the bright side, Muhammad Wilkerson had seven tackles and the fumble recovery for a touchdown. Bart Scott, Ellis Lankster and Mike DeVito all recorded sacks. Brian Thomas and David Harris combined on another sack.

The loss leaves the Jets at 3-6 on the season and in need of a lot of answers, especially on offense.
