Week 14- New York Jets at Seattle Seahawks- Sunday,12/13/20 @ 4:00 PM (CBS)

The New York Jets continue their grinding schedule with yet another 2019 playoff opponent. The Seattle Seahawks may be one of the most underrated successful teams of the last two decades. Since 2003, Seattle has been to the playoffs 13 of the 17 seasons. When it comes to Pete Carroll’s team, just when you think they are preparing for a rebuild, they go out and win 11 games.

Last season, the Seahawks were a staggering 11-3, with only two games left. With two weeks to go, Seattle had a chance to lock up home-field advantage with a win over Arizona or San Francisco. Arizona caught them off guard, and the 49ers offered up another instant classic.

With that, Seattle headed into the playoffs as the five-seed in the NFC. The Seahawks were able to get a Wild Card victory on the road against the Eagles, but their season came to an end with a loss in Green Bay.

This offseason, the Seahawks haven’t made too many changes through free agency but did bring in a notable piece. After complimenting retirement, the Seahawks signed tight end, Greg Olsen. Defensive-ends Ezekiel Ansah and Jadeveon Clowney are still unrestricted free agents, and Ansah could return to Seattle, but Clowney has made his intentions clear to sign elsewhere.

Talk about bad luck for the New York Jets. It’s bad enough having to play the Super Bowl champs on the road, and in the same season, having to go across the country to play in Seattle as well leaves much to be desired. This will be another test for Darnold and this offense in a hostile environment. Oh yeah, and there is that Russell Wilson guy who is always a threat to win the MVP.
