Two teams that want to make statement wins will face off on Sunday as the New York Jets take on the Seattle Seahawks

The Jets are trying to turn around their season after a 3-5 start, but CenturyLink Field might be the toughest place to do that. The Seahawks have won all four of their games at home this season, and it is perennially one of the most intimidating places to play in the NFL.

Seattle is in good shape for the year with a 5-4 record, but there are still those who doubt the young team. A win would bring some rare national attention to the organization.

Here is everything you need to know about the cross-country battle.

What They're Saying

Tim Smith of the New York Daily News gives his descriptions of where the Jets stand at this point of the season:

Here is where the Jets were before the bye: They couldn’t run the ball effectively, they couldn’t stop the run adequately, the defense couldn’t get off the field on third down and their special teams had blown a gasket.

They are a race car with a blown engine and three flat tires. What do you fix first?

As you can imagine, Smith does not have a very uplifting view of New York's prospects for the remainder of the season. It seems like few outside of the locker room believe they can turn things around. 

Fantasy Big Plays

Jets: Shonn Greene

The offense has been inconsistent, but Shonn Greene might be the most reliable over the past month. 

In the last three games, the running back has averaged 118.3 total yards per game plus four touchdowns in that span.

Seattle allows 4.4 yards per carry to opposing running backs, which ranks in the bottom third of the NFL.

New York should be able to pound the ball on the ground and allow Greene to have a solid fantasy day.

Seahawks: Marshawn Lynch

Lynch is currently second in the NFL with 881 rushing yards, and he seems to be just getting better.

He has topped 100 rushing yards in each of the last three games and has scored in the last two.

Only three teams in football allow more rushing yards per game than the Jets at 141.4 yards per game. The Seahawks star should be able to take advantage of that for a big day at the office.

Key Matchup: Jets Offensive Line vs. Seahawks Defensive Line

The Jets have two blowout wins this year, both featuring big games by Greene. The offensive line was able to open up holes for the running back, and he topped 90 yards for the only two times in 2012.

In addition, Mark Sanchez was only sacked two times total in the team's three wins. Like most quarterbacks, he is much more efficient when he has time to make decisions and throw.

Seattle has some talented pass-rushers like Bruce Irvin and Chris Clemons. The Jets line must neutralize these players to give the team any chance of victory.

Prediction: Seahawks 20, Jets 17

New York has no answer for Marshawn Lynch. He should be able to continue his great streak and dominate the Jets defense all game long.

Combine this with the imposing crowd in Seattle, and it will make it very hard for the Jets to come out on top.
