Sunday's game against the New York Jets signals the Seahawks' first of three east coast road trips of the 2016 season, with kickoff set for 10 a.m. PT at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, where Seattle last played during Super Bowl XLVIII, winning 43-8 over the Denver Broncos. 

The Week 4 matchup between the Seahawks and Jets represents the 19th all-time meeting between the two clubs, a series Seattle leads 10-8, including a 28-7 win at CenturyLink Field in 2012, the last time the two teams faced off. 

Here's a look around the web at which side football experts are predicting to win this weekend:

Sheil Kapadia at ESPN.com says Seattle should win a close game, 20-16, "The Seahawks would be thrilled to go into their bye with a 3-1 record, but if that's going to happen, they'll need to help a hobbled Russell Wilson. The fifth-year quarterback is expected to start but will be limited because of a sprained MCL in his left knee. The Jets have a clear advantage with their defensive line going up against the Seahawks' offensive line. But the Seahawks should be able to control the game on the other side of the ball. Pete Carroll's defense has allowed 12.3 points per game. The Seahawks squeak out a victory."

Rich Cimini at ESPN.com has the Seahawks winning by double digits, 23-10, "Look for a hard-hitting game between two good defensive teams. Ryan Fitzpatrick, coming off a six-pick nightmare, will have a hard time against a secondary yielding only 6.5 yards per pass attempt. This isn't the ideal get-well opponent for the Jets' out-of-sync offense. In fact, Seattle is ranked No. 1 in fewest yards allowed. The Jets also [will] be without Eric Decker (shoulder), which would exacerbate their red zone issues."

Elliot Harrison at NFL.com has the Seahawks winning 15-10, "Love this matchup, a true defensive slugfest that could go either way. Trusting the Seahawks on the road against a team that isn't playing very well."

Pete Prisco at CBSSports.com thinks Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick bounces back from last week's performance and New York wins, 21-17, "This is a long trip for the Seahawks, and Russell Wilson is battling a knee injury. How healthy will he be against a good Jets front? The interesting battle will be to see if Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick can battle back against a good Seattle defense. I think he does. Jets take it."

Chris Burke at SI.com has New York coming out on top, 17-13, "The Seattle defense has forced just one turnover thus far, but it's also held its first three opponents under the 300-yard barrier. Expect a grind-it-out ballgame"

Peter Schrager at FOXSports.com thinks the Jets will win, 20-16, "Seattle's travelling across the country, playing at 10 a.m. local time, and likely will be going to battle with a quarterback who's seriously hampered by knee and ankle injuries. I like the Jets. I know Ryan Fitzpatrick threw six interceptions last week in Kansas City (he may have just thrown another one as you're reading this), but I can't ignore that Jets defensive line versus Seattle's offensive line."
