The New York Jets are entering Week 4 in what many are considering a “must-win” as they play the Seattle Seahawks. They are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in their Week 3 matchup as they lost 24-3. What made it scary for the Jets was the poor performance of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick who would end up throwing six interceptions.
I don’t care if you are at the top of the NFL QB class or the bottom if you throw six interceptions, you are more than likely not going to win. Hopefully, the Jets start using the mentally of one game at a time because after the Seahawks game on Sunday at 1 pm est ( 10 AM PST), the Jets schedule only gets harder. In the next few weeks before their October 30th matchup against the Browns, the Jets play the Cardinals, Ravens, and Steelers. All these teams are playing well and are not the easiest teams to play.
On the other side, the Seattle Seahawks are coming into this game coming off a huge NFC West win over the San Francisco 49ers. Unfortunately, Seahawks starting QB Russell Wilson got banged up a bit and ended up sitting the second half of the game. As of Saturday night, there is no doubt that Russell Wilson will get the start in the game. Earlier in the week, it was uncertain if Wilson was going to play. In my preview piece, I said that Wilson was not going to play and I was wrong on that. I was only going by what I was being told on the internet. This also changes the Jets gameplan because Wilson is a dual threat style QB and can easily burn them with him running.
Here happens to be the latest injury report for both teams of the most notable players who won’t get suited up for this showdown. First, for the New York Jets, it is being reported that Eric Decker, Jalin Marshall, and Bryce Petty are all officially out for Sunday’s game. The only Jets player who is questionable for Sunday’s game is OL Ryan Clady with a shoulder injury. On the other side, the Seahawks have Thomas Rawls listed as being out for the game on Sunday. They have Jimmy Graham, Mike Morgan, and Jarran Reed all listed as questionable. My feeling is Jimmy Graham will play, Mike Morgan will be limited in his play, and Jarran Reed probably won’t play at all.
