In the second quarter of last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson felt some pressure off the left edge, stepped up in the pocket and started scrambling to his left.
He stayed behind the line of scrimmage Joel Bitonio Womens Jersey and kept his eyes downfield. With his body turned towards the sideline, and his legs still moving, Wilson somehow was able to deliver a perfect pass to tight end Jimmy Graham, who broke a tackle and sprinted to the end zone for a 35-yard touchdown.

The Patriots return to MetLife on Sunday, still a winning machine even though they lost their star quarterback for four games to a silly NFL penalty.

Eight of the 11 players who were on the field for Decker’s touchdown remain on the Jets’ roster, although two have missed significant time because of injuries — Decker (season-ending shoulder and hip surgeries) and center Nick Mangold (poised to miss his fourth game with a severe ankle sprain).
The three goners are left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson (retired), running back Chris Ivory (free agent) and receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (cut in the preseason).
There was certainly enough holdover talent to be better than 3-7, but the Jets have regressed in stunning fashion. The biggest one-season drop off in franchise history is six wins (10-6 to 4-12, twice), and this team could threaten that ignominious mark.
