Too many factors play into the Hawks' strengths. Home game, the Jets awful run defense, Revis out, awful Jets pass offense, the Hawks on the other hand have a strong run game, strong if not the best pass defense, solid pass rush and even with the run game giving up big days to the Niners and AP, the Jets run game is anchored by Shonn "waste of a fantasy pick" Greene.
Sanchez? I don't think so. Lynch, Turbin and at least one of the WR's have a good day regardless of the Jets pass defense ranking.
Jet fans talk about Lynch not being a speed back which gives them trouble, but ask Detroit and Philly about Lynch's speed and they will tell you different. Their fans hopes are that and that Ryan always designs defenses for Rookie QB's to struggle. Ryan knows perfectly well that Wilson is not playing anything like a rookie and will be planning to play him like he does any other quality QB. It wouldn't matter, RW can handle it.
The only chance the Jets have is the "any given Sunday" chance and the game is played on the field. There is too much that has to go wrong for the Hawks to lose.
37-13 Hawks with compound defensive scores. I don't usually pick games with that kind of margin, but looking at the recent history has the Hawks all over this game. The Hawks are a fairly healthy team, playing in the Clink.. That alone makes them a favorite against nearly anybody.
The only concern I have and I mean only is that Bevell will get cute and pass even though Lynch is gaining yardage. 1/30/2015 - loaf
