Seahawks' Two-Minute Drill
Players of the game
• Golden Tate caught a pass for a 38-yard touchdown, and threw one for a 23-yard TD. His most impressive play didn’t score any points, but did cause jaws to drop. Facing third-and-five, the Seahawks threw a bubble screen to Tate who faked out two defenders, hurdling one of them to gain 13 yards.
• Cornerback Richard Sherman baited Mark Sanchez into throwing a ball he picked off in the Seattle end zone, and forced a fumble with his fourth-quarter blitz.
• Running back Marshawn Lynch rushed for 124 yards on 27 carries, his fourth consecutive game with more than 100 yards.

• QB Russell Wilson was sacked four times after being sacked just once in Seattle’s previous two games.
• Mark Sanchez’s passer rating of 40.7 ranked No. 4 of all the players, trumped by Wilson (131.0), Tate (158.3) and Tim Tebow (79.2).
