After a tough loss against the New York Giants in Week 13, the Seattle Seahawks regained momentum with a 40-3 win against the New York Jets on Dec. 13. Although the Jets had the worst record in the league at 0-13, many of the Seahawks players treated this matchup as a way to get confident again. During the game, NFL commentator Greg Gumbel said that this week was “merely a recharge week for the Seahawks to get back to where they belong.” Safety Jamal Adams said that the Seahawks felt “out of it” against the Giants.

That’s not our standard. That’s not Seahawk football. That’s not Seahawk defense,” Adams said after the game. “I don’t know what it was … I do know what it was — we weren’t doing our job. When you don’t do your job on defense, and they’re running the ball like they were running it–very efficient–you’re going to have a long day.”

Quarterback Russell Wilson turned it around against the Jets and went 21 of 27 pass completions for 206 yards, 4 touchdowns and only threw 1 interception. Running backs Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde both had strong games, achieving over 140 yards, while Carson also scored a touchdown. Receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett both caught over 5 catches for a combined total of 113 yards. An all around strong week for the Seahawks became necessary after the unexpected loss to the Giants who were highly favored to lose. 

On Dec. 20, the Seahawks face the Washington Football Team, who have a similar record as the Giants at 6-7. The Seahawks have proven themselves to be unstoppable at times, but they have also shown incredible weakness on both sides of the field. 

While the Seahawks lead the league in red zone conversions with a blistering 85.71%, they also have allowed the most yards against them in the entire league. With Chris Carson and Jamal Adams each still in full form for the third consecutive week, the Seahawks will continue to fight for division leaders.
