The Seahawks are flying high after a 28-7 thumping of the New York Jets.

With the win, Seattle improves to 6-4 on the season, as they ride a two game win streak into a bye week.

That kind of momentum is HUGE for a developing team.

"It's huge for us," said receiver Sidney Rice. "We started out a little sluggish in the first half not playing Seahawks football, but the second half we got it going, we came out and executed and did what we were supposed to do in the first half."

Rice, among others, is happy to rest up for a week before facing the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 25.
