Why New York Will Win
When an online casino does business, it gets a lot of speculation from interested fans. Here's a bit of speculation on how the Jets can go into Seattle and win this weekend: Rex Ryan is a great motivator and this – despite the problems that the Jets are having on the field this season, especially in terms of their failure to be consistent – always makes this team dangerous on the proverbial "any given Sunday."
All that has to happen this week is that Ryan's healed-up team – mercifully rested from having a bye week at just the right point on their schedule – will give them more players that are up to competing and being prepared for gameday. The Jets certainly weren't prepared for Miami in their most recent and embarrassing loss, but they might now have the right mindset and an appropriate level of urgency. This week is in important for the Jets because this team needs to show other teams (and their own selves as well) that they are still contenders. Winning against a strong up and comer like the Seahawks on the road is just the way to do that. Attitude could make all the difference for New York in this contest.
Why Seattle Will Win
In the high-stakes poker tournament that is the NFL regular season, here's the winning hand the Seahawks carry into Sunday afternoon's matchup against the Jets: A strong defense that gets a lot of energy and aggression from the home town fans in Seattle is the engine that puts this team in position to win. At home, the Seahawks are a transformed team on the defensive side of the ball.
The Seahawks, who were lousy on defense in their most recent road loss at Detroit, seem to hit harder and get to the other team's quarterback more often (just ask Green Bay signal caller Aaron Rodgers about that after he was sacked nine times by the Seahawks in that infamous Monday Night Football game a month and a half ago). The offensive side of this team is still working out what its identity is, but almost every week the Seahawks' offense looks a little better.
Russell Wilson seems more certain about what he's doing on the field, especially in the pocket. The other players in his offensive huddle, especially the receivers (Golden Tate in particular) are dropping fewer passes and are basically following his example. Increased performance from the skill people on offense is what is really bringing this team closer to what the coach Pete Carroll wants it to be.
Who Will Win
The Jets do not have the right focus. They are going to be rusty after their off week, and the Seahawks have one of the best home field advantages in the league, which will put them over the top in this game, especially if you consider the fact that they have only lost once at Century Link field this year.
