Seahawks vs Jets: 5 takeaways from Seattle’s impressive road win
By Keith Myers
Seahawks vs Jets: A great road win for Seattle sends them into their bye week with at least a share of 1st place and a chance to finally get healthy.
The Seattle Seahawks picked up a very big road win today. They traveled to New York and beat the Jets 27-17 in a game that wasn’t as close as the score suggests. This was a fairly dominating performance by the Seahawks.
The Seahawks move to 3-1 on the year and head into their bye week. They’re in first place in the division after four games, and are starting to get healthy. They look like they’re ready to go on a big run here over the next couple of months.
Here are my five takeaways from Seattle huge win on the road:
1. The Seahawks just couldn’t get the running game going
The Jets have an amazingly talented defensive front. It showed up whoever Seattle tried to run the football.
Christine Michael simply could not find room to run with any regularity. The Jets clogged running lane all game long and kept Michael from getting going.
Ultimately, Michael finished with only 58 yards on 18 carries. That 3.2 average doesn’t look as bad as the game suggested, but it isn’t what we’ve come to expect from Seattle’s running game.
