Game Overview

The Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets have played some memorable games in the past, and they are going to renew ties on Sunday afternoon at CenturyLink Field in NFL betting action this week.

The Jets have been running their mouths again, and now it is DB Antonio Cromartie who is saying that the team is going to make the playoffs this year. That probably means winning this one, because the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots are starting to open up some ground and the amount of games left to play is starting to dwindle. QB Mark Sanchez remains on the hook for his job, but he has played at least a little bit better over the course of his last few games before the Jets went into their bye week. The ground game is surprisingly adequate with RB Shonn Greene, who is a plodding sort of back that always seems to fall forward for positive yardage. Still, we have some concerns over the defense, which is one of the lesser units in the league right now. The team is only averaging just over a sack per game, and that doesn’t cut it in a Rex Ryan scheme by any stretch of the imagination.

The Seahawks haven’t lost a game yet this year at home, and the truth of the matter is if that continues for the rest of the campaign, they’re probably going to ultimately get into the playoffs when push comes to shove. QB Russell Wilson hasn’t been remarkable this year, but he really hasn’t had to be either. Wilson has thrown for 1,639 yards and 13 TDs against eight picks. He has one great receiver in WR Sidney Rice, who has 32 receptions for 421 yards with four TDs. Aside from that though, there isn’t a heck of a lot to write home about in the passing game. RB Marshawn Lynch has gone into Beast Mode time and time again, and he has 881 yards and four TDs on 185 carries. The problem that Seattle has is that it has accounted for just a total of 17 touchdowns on the campaign, and that’s not really a great number when you think about it.

Prediction

We just have the feeling that there is going to be some way that the Jets get the job done with this one. We don’t know how they’re going to do it, but off of a bye the mad genius known as Rex Ryan might be able to figure this one out. New York 20 – Seattle 17
