Jets vs Seahwaks Highlights

The series lead is with this week’s home team as the Seahawks have claimed victory in 12 previous encounters compared to New York’s 8. Times have changed recently, with the Seahawks winning the last 4 fixtures regardless of where they were played, but prior to that, the Jets had been victorious 5 times in a row.

The Jets’ last win in Seattle was one of those consecutive victories, all the way back in 1997. One statistic that won’t sit well with the traveling fans is that the Jets have failed to score double-digit points in their last three visits to Lumen Field, with two of those visits seeing a single field goal on their offensive stats.

This is made more alarming by the fact that they finished 2021 with the 7th worst offensive yards per game of any team in the league. That stat, coupled with the fact they have one of the worst defenses, leans us toward a Seahawks home victory this week. Robert Saleh has had a lot to think about over the course of the season, but whether he is given more thinking to do as a result of this matchup remains to be seen. Those looking to bet on NFL games might say the same. The long and short of it? The Seahawks take the points.
