Seahawks vs. Jets: Seattle and New York tied 7-7 after first quarter

The Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets look set for a defensive battle. While each did score in the first quarter, which ended 7-7, one of those scores came from the defense and neither team managed much of an offense.

The Seahawks jumped in front on their first drive of the game with Russell Wilson finding Doug Baldwin for 18 yards, then hitting Golden Tate on a 38-yard touchdown pass. From there, it looked like Seattle's offense was going to find a rhythm, but the Seahawks lost a yard on their next drive and fumbled on the one after that.

That fumble is what let the Jets get even. Wilson was sacked and fumbled at his own 21. Muhammad Wilkerson picked the ball up and scampered into the endzone, getting New York even.

The good news for the Seahawks is that they have done well to shutdown the Jets' offense, but that hasn't paid off on the scoreboard. Their offense is going to have to get going, and keep from giving the Jets any more points if they are going to improve to 5-0 at home this year.
