Seahawks Upset Jets in Snow 13-3, Hasselbeck Inactive Again

Seahawks upset Jets in snow, 13-3
      SEATTLE (AP) - If this is Brett Favre's kind of weather, then
the magic is gone for the veteran quarterback. And so likely are
the Jets' playoff chances.
      Seattle's Maurice Morris sliced through the snow like a sled for
a season-high 116 yards and John Carlson scored the only touchdown
on a short pass from backup Seneca Wallace as the lowly Seahawks
ended New York's stay atop the AFC East with a 13-3 upset
      Mike Holmgren, Favre's confidant and former coach in Green Bay,
went out a winner in his final home game as the leader in Seattle -
largely because Favre came up short when the Jets needed him most.
      New York must now beat AFC East co-leading Miami at home next
week to keep any hope of the playoffs alive.
      Holmgren, who's taking a sabbatical from football next year,
took a victory lap around the edge of the field immediately after
the second win in eight games for the Seahawks, who are now 4-11.
      The Seahawks' final game of the season will be next Sunday
against the Cardinals in Arizona.
      Hasselbeck inactive again
      SEATTLE (AP) - Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was inactive for the
eighth game this season when his battered Seahawks hosted the Jets
      Hasselbeck was in uniform as the emergency third quarterback,
but was essentially out again with a bulging disk in his back.
Seneca Wallace made his seventh start of the season.
      Wallace was behind an offensive line that started five fill-ins
because of more injuries, including Sean Locklear, who went on
injured reserve Saturday. Wallace had made just four starts in his
first five NFL seasons before this one.
      Seattle was also down to its third-string outside linebacker.
Starter Leroy Hill was out again with a pinched nerve in his neck,
and backup D.D. Lewis was inactive with a shin injury. Will Herring
made his first career start there.
