The New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks meet Sunday in week 17 NFL action at Lumen Field. The New York Jets have lost 4 straight games. The Seattle Seahawks have lost 5 of their last 6 games.

The New York Jets have lost 3 straight road games. Mike White is completing 62 percent of his passes for 952 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Garrett Wilson and Corey Davis have combined for 1,470 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while Tyler Conklin has 50 receptions. The New York Jets ground game is averaging 104.9 yards per contest, and Breece Hall leads the way with 463 yards and 4 touchdowns.

DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett have combined for 1,969 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns, while Noah Fant has 44 receptions.

Defensively, Seattle is allowing 25.3 points and 373.4 yards per game. Jordyn Brooks leads the Seattle Seahawks with 157 tackles, Uchenna Nwosu has 9 sacks and Tariq Woolen has 6 interceptions.

The Jets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in January. The Seahawks are 0-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Jets last 10 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Seahawks last 5 games in January. The Jets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

I’m not sure what the Jets did to be favored on the road, White playing quarterback or not. Wilson or White, the Jets’ offense has been a mess all year and is 25th in scoring offense. The Seattle Seahawks have their issues as well, and their defense has been a joke all year. The differences in this game is the fact the Seahawks are at home, and that helps in a must win game for both sides in terms of the playoffs. Also, this is a revenge game for Smith, as he spent his first 4 seasons with the Jets and was then kicked to the curb. I guarantee Smith had this game circled on his calendar. Give me the points with the Seahawks.
