may not be such a thing as an "easy win" in the NFL, but the Seattle
Seahawks sure made it look like it. The New York Jets had absolutely no
chance against our Seahawks on Veteran’s Day, as the defense utterly
dominated while the offense had no problem getting in the end zone in
the 28-7 win.
Marshawn Lynch had as many
rushing yards as Sanchez had passing yards (124), and Golden Tate had
more passing yards (23) than Tebow had through the air and on the ground
(22). Tate also threw for a touchdown, which Sanchez would have tied if
not for a Richard Sherman interception.
If it wasn’t the Jets
offering the gift of a win to all military veterans in attendance, the
Seahawks defense sure made it seem that way.
The win by the Seahawks was
the cherry on top of an incredible show of appreciation to the Armed
Forces. Although there were many more tributes and displays of
appreciation, here are a few that were caught on camera:

the hours before kickoff to the final seconds of the game, the
outpouring of support and appreciation from the Seahawks, USAA, and fans
at the game was nothing short incredible. Although many of you may not
have been able to experience it firsthand, please know that those who
were in uniform and directly a part of the activities represented you
well. The appreciation given to them was directed toward everyone who
has ever worn the uniform. Happy Veteran’s Day!
