TJP:What is your impression of this Jets team? What if any matchups concern you in this game?

12MR:I’m not sure that your readers will want to read my impressions of the Jets. But you asked, so I’ll answer truthfully. The Jets are a joke, and I mean that with full respect to their fans and the the franchise’s storied history. The current version of the team, seems more interested in being in the headlines than winning. Perhaps it’s just the way they are portrayed in the media, but parading their backup QB around in the offseason to play ouT the QB controversy story sure didn’t help.

On the field, the Jets just aren’t that scary. The offensive line isn’t dominant like it was a couple seasons ago. I like Hill on the outside, but the Seahawk’s starting corners are 6-3 and 6-4, so he doesn’t pose a matchup problem like he does for other teams. Plus, the defense just isn’t as scary without Revis.

The only concern I have is Shonn Greene. The Seahawk’s run defense was one of the best in the league for the first 6 games, but over the last 3 they’ve suddenly been fairly awful. Greene an underrated runner, and has the potential to really punish the Seahawks if they can’t figure out what’s been going wrong the past few weeks.

TJP:How about a prediction?

12MR:The Seahawks simply don’t win at home. The 12th Man creates the best home field advantage in the NFL, so picking against the Seahawks at CenturyLink is a fool’s bet. It’ll be close, because all Seahawk games are close, but Seattle will end up on top in the end.

Seahawks 26 – 16 Jets
