New York Jets
The New York Jets (3-5) will play the Seattle Seahawks (5-4) this Sunday afternoon in CenturyLink Field from Seattle, WA.
Game starts at 4:05 pm on CBS (TV) and WEPN (Radio).
Seahawks favorites over Jets.
Spread is -6 points.
My pick is the Seahawks.
Coming off the bye week. The Jets will try to turn the tod here while they travel out on to the pacific northwest to take on the Seahawks.
Gang Green is looking for ways to win a game in desperate times and instead of Rex Ryan and Antonio Cromartie telling the media that they will make the playoffs.
How about just try to win a football game this Sunday and here are the three keys for the Jets in order to win:
(1) Gang Green's offense has to zone out the 12th man in CentruyLink Field who have the loudest stadium in all of football and focus on the game by trying to move the ball downfield.
(2) The Jets defense have to treat Seahawks QB Russell Wilson like a serious Qb rather than a rookie. He has been very good this season and the secondary has to shutdown the Seahawks passing game if they have a chance to win.
(3) Make this an all-around defensive game because you don't want Marshawn Lynch taking over the game or it is going to over in a hurry.
Out: DT Kenrick Ellis (Knee), RB Joe McKnight (Ankle)
Questionable: LB Bart Scott (Toe), C Nick Mangold (Ankle), G Brandon Moore (Hip), S Eric Smith (Knee), RB Bilal Powell (Shoulder), DT Sione Pouha (Back)
Out: G James Carpenter (Concussion), LB K.J. Wright (Concussion)
Doubtful: DE Greg Scruggs (Oblique)
Questionable: DT Clifton McDonald (Groin)
Final score is Seahawks 20, Jets 16
BEST OF MAXIM
The New Yorks Jets highly regarded special teams coach Mike Westhoff couldn't believe what he was seeing from his unit two weeks ago against the Miami Dolphins. A punt blocked for a touchdown, a blocked a field goal, an onside kick recovered by Miami, and a slew of good returns. When asked about the special teams unit having bad games like that, "You can never sugarcoat...
Seahawks All Access
I started this after the “Canada Day” Seattle Seahawks game but never got around to finishing it, all I managed to accomplish was the title. The reason why I chose Jon Ryan to be the subject of this piece was two fold.
First, he’s Canadian so he seemed to be the perfect subject following Canada Day at CenturyLink and second, he became this first punter...
The emergence of so many young quarterbacks in recent years has turned the National Football League into a "passing league".Or so say the experts and media outlets who cover the sport.Recent years have also shown that it is possible for teams with weak defenses to not only make it to the Super Bowl, but win it. Sometimes it seems like I'm watching the "Bizarro...
The New York Jets begin the second half of their 2012 schedule with what will be a daunting task. The Jets head into Seattle to take on the 5-4 Seahawks, a franchise that has exceeded expectations up until this point through a variety of talent, tenacity, energy, youth, and passion. Pete Carroll has injected a positive influence over his team that is reflected by the Seahawks’...
Give It To John Moffitt!
That was my first thought when Golden Tate lost the ball at the goal line and big John Moffitt piled on it. But unfortunately, Golden Tate did in fact cross the line, taking away what likely could’ve been Moffitt’s one-and-only career touchdown for the Seattle Seahawks.
Despite an amazing catch radius from Sidney Rice, and some Beast Mode-ing from...
Or anyone for that matter
On Monday, my editor sent me this Seattle Seahawks pitch, asking if I would be interested in writing the piece—he already had the headline picked. I had to laugh a little bit at first because I actually had this conversation with my buddy at at a recent game.
The actual conversation wasn’t really about Marhawn Lynch versus Adrian Peterson; it was...
After New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie said he believes the team will still make the playoffs, head coach Rex Ryan told reporters the whole team feels that way (Credit: AP Photo)
At 3-5, the New York Jets currently sit at third place in the AFC East. Today while on NFL AM, Jets corner back Antonio Cromartie said he still believes the team will make the playoffs.
New York Jets (3-5) at Seattle Seahawks (5-4)
I’m so glad there isn’t a heavy public lean on Seattle this week. As some of you may know, the public killed the odds makers in unprecedented fashion last week, going 12-2 and winning every heavy lean. The odds makers aren’t going broke or anything. They killed the public for the first 8 weeks of the season and are still up on the...
Jets, Seahawks Matchup Closer then Records Would Suggest
You’ve heard all about the Jets, they are consistently the lead story on Sports Center every night and have one of the most infamous backup quarterbacks in NFL history and perhaps one of the most outspoken head coaches in sports.
Things have not gone their way this year. They have lost their best defensive player Derrelle...
Tim Tebow hasn’t been given much time to assert his presence in the Jets offense.
One season after totaling 18 touchdowns with a playoff-bound Broncos team, Tebow has been relegated to spot duty in Rex Ryan‘s offense this year. And the 25-year-old isn’t pleased with his new role.
“I think when you’re getting the ball a lot during the game you can get the rhythm of the game...
Oi vey… my first column that has to do with the circus that is the J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS! The (3-5) Jets head west to take on the 12th Man and the (5-4) Seattle Seahawks.
Cornerback Antonio Cromartie went on air this week guaranteeing that the Jets will make the playoffs. Although the AFC is the weaker of the 2 conferences, and I do see a 9-7 team making the playoffs, the...
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan told the media that he doesn’t blame Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll for trying to talk quarterback Mark Sanchez into staying at USC when they were both their.
“I did not blame Pete Carroll one bit,” Ryan said, according to the New York Daily News, via the Seattle Times. “If I had that young man as my quarterback, I’d say whatever it took...
Week 9 Record: 2-1
Season Record: 10-16-1
Why do the Giants always look like such a good bet? It’s like every single week I look at them and I’m like “Yeah of course they’re covering that.” Look at this week, -3.5 against the Bengals? Really? I feel like the Giants win this game by four points or more 99% of the time. So am I going to go with them as one of my three highlight...
