Jets lose grip on playoffs with abysmal effort in Holmgren's snowy home finale
SEATTLE -- Brett Favre spoke softly and shrugged his aging shoulders, saying for perhaps the last time in his legendary career: "I don't have all the answers."Mike Holmgren had some, and took a victory lap through the snow in his last game in Seattle.
• The Jets fell to 0-4 on the West Coast this season (9-2 in all other time zones) and their five-game win streak vs. the Seahawks was snapped.
• Brett Favre was held without a passing touchdown for the third time in his last four games. He has one TD and six interceptions in that span.
• The Jets failed to score a TD for the first time in their last 20 games (Week 12 of last season vs. Cowboys).
• The Jets can still win the AFC East with a win vs. Miami next week and a Bills victory over the Patriots.
