Picks And Predictions For Week 17 Matchup Against The New York Jets

Local and national media members make their picks for the Week 17 game vs. the New York Jets.


Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio is taking the Seahawks to beat the Jets in a close 24-21 game in Week 17. "The Seahawks have shown some flashes in recent weeks, and the Jets feel like they're in a bit of disarray."

The Bleacher Report Staff panel came to a final consensus that the Jets will defeat the Seahawks on their own turf 26-23 in Week 17. "Since Week 13, Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith has seen his passing numbers drop. He's thrown for only one touchdown in each of his last two games. Going against the Jets' fifth-ranked pass defense and with wideout Tyler Lockett's status up in the air after finger surgery, take New York to win by a field goal"

Richard Morin of USA Today is taking the Seahawks to win in a very close 28-27 "statement" game over the Jets. "Geno Smith and Pete Carroll might be looking to make a statement against their former franchise, but Mike White's return might make that difficult. I think Seattle gets a last-second victory."


Listen To The Seahawks Insiders Podcast

Hosted by sideline reporter Jen Mueller and Seahawks Senior Digital Media Reporter John Boyle, the Seahawks Insiders podcast takes an in-depth look at each week's Seahawks game and analyzes the previous week's matchup. Available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and wherever else you get your podcasts.

Bob Brookover, a Giants Beat Reporter on chooses the Seahawks to beat the Jets 30-27 at home in Week 17. "Mike White is back at quarterback, Zach Wilson is back on the bench and the Jets are back to being a mess."

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports NFL has the Jets turning things around and winning in a tight 24-20 matchup against the Seahawks in Week 17. "This a long, tough trip for the Jets, who are not playing well. Mike White will be back at quarterback in this one against a Seattle defense that is struggling. Geno Smith hasn't played well in recent weeks, and the Jets are a tough defense. With White back, the Jets will find a way to win a close one."

Guilherme Hiray Leal of ClutchPoints predicts the Seahawks to win by one score over the Jets in Week 17. "The Seahawks will win this game in thrilling fashion. At most, this will be a one-touchdown game. With this result, Seattle will stay alive in the playoff race in the NFC while New York will be in a tough position in the AFC, maybe even officially out of contention in case the Miami Dolphins win in Week 17."

Safid Dean of USA Today is picking the Seahawks to pull out a 27-17 win at home in Week 17 against New York. "Both teams are clinging onto playoff hopes entering this game. The Seahawks, losers of three in a row, have a chance to stay in the mix with a win. On the other side, Mike White's return from a rib injury will galvanize the Jets, but they simply don't have enough firepower to pull out an upset in Seattle."
