4 units on New York PICK () (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
The New York Jets had a well-timed bye week after a horrid performance at home where they were beaten badly by Miami, 30-9. In that game, players were accused of giving up. Is it all over for the Jets, at 3-5 and coming off a humiliating loss? I don't think it's over quite yet. The Jets are talking like a playoffs team and even at 3-5, they are still just two games out of the last wildcard spot. Coach Ryan hinted at some changes to exploit the Seahawks, but wouldn't fully disclose just what. One change needs to be with QB Mark Sanchez's issues with ball security as he has six fumbles and five INTs over the last five games. Let's not forget that the Jets went to Foxboro and almost beat the Patriots. So, they certainly are capable of winning here or at least playing competitive. The biggest problem for Seattle has been finding offense and the end-zone. Through nine games the Seahawks have scored 16 points or less in five of them. Those are tough numbers if you’re backing nearly a TD favorite. Russell Wilson is still a rookie and has played erratically, throwing eight INTs on the season. Rex Ryan is the master of disguise, and having two weeks to scheme the defense. I think the Jets hang around in this one.
