Here are five things that will happen when the Seahawks play the Jets in week 14.
Statistically speaking, the New York Jets are awful. In the Jets case, the statistics do not lie as the team is 0-12. New York is 32nd in the NFL in total offense and has given up the 27th-most touchdown passes (24) on defense. New York gives up a 30th-worst 29.4 points a game and scores a league-worst 15 points a game. The Seattle Seahawks have absolutely no business losing to the Jets in week 14.
But Seattle could. For one thing, the Jets have been playing better recently. Four games ago they lost to the Patriots 30-27, the next week they lost to the Chargers 34-28 then after blowout loss to the Dolphins two weeks ago, New York barely lost to the Raiders this past Sunday 31-28. And New York should have won as they gave up a 46-yard touchdown pass with 5 seconds left in the game.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks have lost four of their last seven games and the Seattle offense has been struggling. A lot of the blame might go towards Russell Wilson who simply hasn’t been his normally great self over the last half of the season. That needs to change this week because Seattle will need to throw the ball because while the Jets are horrible against the pass they aren’t terrible in defending the run.
Maybe some 12s will expect the Seahawks to score 35-plus points this game with ease as the Jets haven’t won a game. I think this is false. But here are five things I do think will happen.
