Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Seattle Seahawks-New York Jets Week 4 game, with the line from OddsShark.
(-1.5) Seattle Seahawks (2-1) vs. New York Jets (1-2), 1 p.m.
Mike: Jets. Hey, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sometimes it’s OK to settle for points in the red zone. If Fitzy avoids turning over the ball six times — three in the red zone — like he did last week, the Jets’ defense should handle the rest.
Ricky: Jets. The Seahawks rebounded in Week 3 for a 19-point win over the 49ers, but the Jets’ defense isn’t going to roll over. In fact, the unit could make life incredibly difficult for Seattle, which is dealing with shoddy offensive line play and a hobble starting quarterback.
Andre: Jets. The Jets still know how to pressure quarterbacks (seventh in sacks) despite allowing a ton of passing yards (NFL-worst 9.7 yards per attempt). I don’t care who’s quarterback for the Seahawks — their offensive line isn’t good, and Ryan Fitzpatrick playing at home should be able to limit his mistakes, unlike last week.
