This is not a team the Jets want to see after the performance last weekend at Arrowhead Stadium. Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled mightily, throwing six interceptions and torpedoing the offense. He will struggle to find much success against the Seahawks Legion of Boom led by Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.
Not only do the Seahawks have a strong defense, the Jets offense will be missing Eric Decker. Decker was diagnosed with a partially torn rotator cuff and will miss the game this week. It is a big blow for the Jets, as they will be without Jalin Marshall and Brandon Marshall is hampered by injury as well.
The Jets will be counting on Quincy Enunwa stepping into the No.2 role with rookies Charone Peake and Robbie Anderson filling in behind him. The Seahawks are not the team you want to be thrown into the fire against, but it is what head coach Todd Bowles has at his disposal right now.
The Seahawks are not without injury concerns either, though. Quarterback Russell Wilson is dealing with a sprained MCL and high ankle sprain; he is expected to start but those are injuries that could slow him down. The Jets will have to try putting pressure on him to keep him uncomfortable in the pocket.

This has the makings of a slow, grind it out type of game. Both teams have strong defenses that will be heavily relied upon as the offenses need to be protected for different reasons. It should be a defensive battle void of very many scoring opportunities.
Will the Jets be able to get back to the .500 mark and avoid a disastrous 1-3 start? Or will the Seahawks put together a strong performance for a second consecutive week and move to 3-1 on the season heading into their bye week?
This is a big game for the Jets, as their difficult schedule will only continue. After hosting the Seahawks, the Jets will have to travel to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals the next two weeks. Not the teams you want to face while riding a two-game losing streak.
