Seattle Seahawks December preview and predictions

In Week 14, the other New York team will come to town
Sunday, December 13 , 2020: Week 14 — New York Jets @ Seattle Seahawks
The other New York team will get their shot at the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14 as the winless Jets come to town. The Jets are on the verge of finishing the season with 0 wins and firing their head coach in the offseason. Many believe with the first pick, they will select Clemson QB Trevor Lawerence. Regardless, this team is a mess and this game shouldn’t be close.
Not too many people had high expectations for this Jets team coming into this season, but I do not think anybody predicted they would be this bad. I know they have dealt with some injuries early on, but nothing excuses a winless season entering December. There have been certain games where they show up and play hard. While there have been other games where this team just looks like they don’t want to be on the field.
Being winless is a hard challenge for a coach as they need to find a way to motivate their guys to give it all they got each and every single week. At this point of the season, some players may just be looking to collect their paycheck and stay healthy. Despite the fact that the Jets are winless, many will want to tune into this matchup as Jamal Adams will be facing his former team.
What Will Determine the Outcome: Jamal Adams Revenge Game
After being traded to the Seahawks in August, Jets defensive coordinator Greg Williams said that Jamal Adams will be “bored”. Well, while he was in agony that he lost his best defensive player, he was just flat out wrong. Of course, Pete Carroll responded and had fun while doing it, but the real talking will be done on the field. Jamal will have the chance to prove to his former team and coaches that he is not bored in Seattle. While his stats already do the talking, it will sting the Jets even more to see him do it to them in person.
I expect Adams to have a presence in the backfield and he may even record his first interception in this one. This is another opportunity for this Seattle front four to get better and apply pressure on the quarterback. The Seahawks may draw up some different things to test out in what should be a scrimmage. But, in all seriousness, this Seattle team cannot overlook any opponent. They must stick to the game plan and do their best to continue to develop the necessary chemistry with the playoffs on the helm.
This should be another 4 touchdown performance from Wilson. The Jets have improved up front in recent weeks, but I do not see them having an answer for Wilson and the number one scoring offense. The Jets are weak in the backend and you should expect Wilson to take multiple deep shots down the field in the direction of both Metcalf and Lockett.
I’m taking the Seahawks to win big in this one.
