NFL Power Rankings Week 17 2022, Seattle Seahawks VS New York Jets
Seattle Seahawks Form
A 24-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last time out extended the Seattle Seahawks’ miserable run of form in the league, leaving the hosts with five defeats in six games.
The Seattle Seahawks rank ninth in the NFL’s offensive rankings, averaging 24.3 points this season and 22.4 points at the Lumen Field. The defense, however, has lagged behind compared to most of the league’s defensive lines, allowing 25.3 points per game this year,.
In 2021, the Seattle Seahawks went 7-10 to end up fourth in the NFC West and out of playoff contention. They were expected to make a return to NFL postseason this year, but it looks like fans will have to wait a little longer as the hosts are only 7-8 this season so far.
New York Jets Form
Form is not looking good for New York Jets, who came up short in a 3-19 defeat against Jacksonville Jaguars last week. Moreover, they have lost their last three road matches in a row. Their overall record for the last 10 games is 4-6.
The New York Jets’ offense has been abysmal all season. It has put up 18.9 points per game, and they saw no improvement in the last five matches, which produced an average of 17.0 points. The visiting defense looks more than capable of taking on any offense at any place, having allowed just 18.0 points on the road this year to post the fifth-best away record.
Unsurprisingly, the New York Jets are unlikely to make the NFL postseason as things stand. Few people expected the away side to go far, and given their 7-8 regular season record, it seems they had good reason.
