Golden Tate opened the scoring by leaping over a cornerback to pull in a perfectly placed touchdown pass, then capped the day for Seattle with a TD toss of his own.
In between those bookend moments, the Seahawks did their part in adding another chapter to the tough season of the New York Jets.
"My mindset is any time I get the ball I can make something special happen, a touchdown, a big first down in a crucial moment, a big gain, that's just how I am," Tate said.
"That's how I approach every single ball that comes my way, because I don't know how many I'm going to get. So I want to make the most out of every single ball that comes my way."
Russell Wilson had two TD passes, before Tate's shot put TD pass to Sidney Rice late in the fourth quarter completed the Seahawks' 28-7 rout of the New York Jets on Sunday.
Tate's 23-yard TD toss to Rice was punctuated by the receiver taking a bow to three sides of Centu-ryLink Field. It might as well have been a collective bow by the entire Seahawks sideline after a dominating second half.
"We hung tough. We weren't playing very well early and some things happened and we hung tough and kept punching away at it," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "We finally put together a real good finish."
Marshawn Lynch added 124 yards rushing and a 1-yard TD plunge as the Seahawks (6-4) won their second straight, improved to 5-0 at home and sent the Jets to their worst start since 2007.
Lynch also topped 1,000 yards for the season on an 18-yard run, bouncing off tacklers late in the fourth quarter. He has 1,005 for the season.
