When west coast teams play across the country for an early start, things normally don’t go their way. The Seattle Seahawks will make the long trip all the way to New York City for a 10am local time start against the New York Jets at Giants Stadium. Seattle may be without quarterback Russell Wilson who got hurt during last week’s win. That would be a major blow while the Jets are trying to bounce back from a huge loss of their own on the road last week. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Seahawks scored a 37-18 win over the San Francisco 49ers but did lose Wilson with a sprained knee. If Wilson can’t play, it will be up to Trevone Boykin to pick up the slack after going 7-for-9 last week for 65 yards and a touchdown. Wilson has 755 passing yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. Doug Baldwin is still the favorite target with 20 catches for 276 yards and two touchdowns while Christine Michael has taken over the running back job full-time with his 232 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. This is a great matchup for the Seahawks defense, even on the road, to pitch a shutout.
The Jets were dominated during a 24-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Ryan Fitzpatrick had an awful week against Kansas City and for the season has 751 passing yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions which six of them coming against the Chiefs. Eric Decker has nine catches for 194 yards and two touchdowns to lead the receiving talent while Matt Forte has rushed for 261 yards and three touchdowns in his first season with the team. If Boykin starts, Darrelle Revis and company must make it a long day for him or the Jets are going to be wondering what could have been on defense.
