Seattle whips Jacksonville even worse than expected

Sidney Rice, Josh Evans AP

Seattle was favored by 20 points against Jacksonville, an almost unheard point spread in the NFL. As it turned out, a bet on Seattle was easy money.

The Seahawks thoroughly whipped the Jaguars, jumping out to a 24-0 lead at halftime and coasting through the second half on the way to a 45-17 win. The 3-0 Seahawks look like a very good team, but the bigger story of this game was that the 0-3 Jaguars look like an absolutely horrible team. The Jaguars were 2-14 last year, and they might be even worse this year.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson had an easy day at work, completing 14 of 21 passes for 202 yards, with four touchdowns and one interception. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll decided to pull Wilson from the game in the third quarter to give backup Tarvaris Jackson some playing time, and Jackson marched the Seahawks’ offense up and down the field on the Jaguars’ defense. Jackson finished the game with a perfect 158.3 passer rating, completing seven of eight passes for 129 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions.

It wasn’t all good news for Seattle, as defensive end Red Bryant left the game with a back injury. There’s no word yet on the severity of the injury, but he’s not a player the Seahawks want to lose for any period of time. And although the Seahawks won easily, the offensive line looked like it missed injured left tackle Russell Okung, and there were times when Wilson was under duress.

But while it may not have been all good news, it was an easy win for Seattle. That’s what happens when one of the best teams in the league plays one of the worst.

    Is this really surprising ?

    1. Seattle
    2. Cardinals
    3. Rams
    4. Niners

    Kaep has a long way to go….

  3. cartire says: Sep 22, 2013 7:40 PM

    Tjax had a rushing TD as well.

  4. orivar says: Sep 22, 2013 7:40 PM

    Actually the Jaguars defense didn’t look back. Yes they gave up a lot of points however they looked better than they did the last two games as they were scrappy and played with a lot of heart.

    Unfortunately that doesn’t mean much as the Jags offense is what is horrendous.

  5. conner87 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:41 PM

    Look at the positive side, Jags fans

    You guys scored more points on the Seahawks than the Panthers and 9ers did, combined.

  6. jakec4 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:42 PM

    How the heck did the Jags score 17?

    Coordinators looking to be a HC need to start wondering if they are better off as a coordinator until the right situation comes along. If they’re that desirable they’ll get a better opportunity. It is suicide to take a job with no QB attached, and no plans to get one.

  7. hawkfanwtf says: Sep 22, 2013 7:42 PM

    Go Hawks!

  8. buzzkillbill says: Sep 22, 2013 7:42 PM

    Sea 3-0
    SF 1-2
    AZ 1-2
    SL 1-2

    I like it!

    Can someone please check on the PFT poster “thegreatgabbert”?

    Check all rivers and ponds for jumpers.
    This is what you trained for people.

    … and Golden Tate is still the Hines Ward of his era.

    Cheap shots are costing his team and the league will lighten his game check.

  11. deezenucks says: Sep 22, 2013 7:45 PM

    Pretty expected outcome when a SB favorite plays a potential 1st overall draft pick, Hawks made the 9ers look bad but even Jax put up more points then SF.
    Jags have some good pieces and are one of the youngest teams but their gonna need a few more solid drafts, starting with Teddy in April.
    Last couple weeks I’m looking pretty smart for taking the Hawks D in the 5th.

  12. themagicman1223 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:45 PM

    Keep in mind our backups were in the game for almost a half.

  13. bigbaldpapahawk says: Sep 22, 2013 7:46 PM

    Bryant left with back spasms. Sounded like rest and treatment should get him back to work.

  14. lurch61 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:47 PM

    FROM A NINER FAN….At least the Jags scored two touchdowns, more than niners could! Looks like the beating we got last week affected more than expected. The NFC West is NOT the powerhouse it was touted to be with 3 teams at 1-2. Only Seattle is the class of the division

  15. Mr. Wright 212 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:48 PM

    I had it 45-0 all week, so not worse than expected. Shocking they even scored 17, even with the ridiculous interception that they got to set up the first score.

  16. rickyspanish says: Sep 22, 2013 7:49 PM

    Gus Bradley is straight class. He got beat up and still had it in him to mingle with his former team. I hope Bradley turn the Jags around, he deserves success.

  17. haterrus says: Sep 22, 2013 7:50 PM

    did anyone waste their time watching this game

  18. texanfan62 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:50 PM

    Hell, go ahead and make the Seahawks 30 point favorites against the Texans, cause they suck.Right now they and the Colts are the 2 best teams in Football.

  19. rushg says: Sep 22, 2013 7:52 PM

    3-0. 0-3. Don’t really matter this early. Keep your head for November and December

  20. bigbaldpapahawk says: Sep 22, 2013 7:52 PM

    Seattle’s backup QB had a MUCH better day than Kaepernick.

  21. larrydavid7000 says: Sep 22, 2013 7:55 PM

    Wow shehawks what a great game beat the most sorriest team outside of seattle.Great job.

  22. drgreenstreak says: Sep 22, 2013 7:56 PM

    It really doesn’t work to say “Seattle” and “class” in the same sentence unless you speak of the lack thereof.

  23. pflynn20 says: Sep 22, 2013 8:01 PM

    Seattle -20 easy money

  24. lance19 says: Sep 22, 2013 8:02 PM

    Well, actually, after the 49s got killed AGAIN
    (they have the 2nd worst point differential in the NFL!!) that Seattle victory over the ‘Niners looks less impressive. And the Jags? Horrible!
    So, hats off to the Seahawks…3-0 is great…but I don’t think we can tell yet whether they’re pretty good, or absolutely awesome…

  25. buzzkillbill says: Sep 22, 2013 8:05 PM

    Well, you can certainly see who’s teams lost when all they have to offer is name calling and weak insults.
    Waa.

  26. bucforever says: Sep 22, 2013 8:05 PM

    At this rate the Bucs and the Jags will be neck and neck for that number one draft pick! Not a good QB crop this year either!

  27. peytonsneck18 says: Sep 22, 2013 8:06 PM

    jags would make trades and tank, but nobody wants their players

  28. natijim235 says: Sep 22, 2013 8:07 PM

    when the jags play the 9ers in london next month they should just stay there

  29. fruitcovejag says: Sep 22, 2013 8:10 PM

    My Jags just might be HISTORICALLY bad!! I’m a fan….Go Jags! Beat Indy on Sunday and then let’s bring #14 back in to do some damage!

  30. 7pints says: Sep 22, 2013 8:11 PM

    Last week the delusional Jokeland “fans” were bragging about their 10 pt home win on this team.

  31. thebirdofprey says: Sep 22, 2013 8:14 PM

    Seattle didn’t let down at all in that game. What a great game by the defense again. Wilson looked far sharper even though he had a pick and fumble. Jacksonville defense played far better than the score showed but Seattle did have their back ups at every level in halfway through the 3rd.

    Tavaris Jackson got flack from PFT posters for years and I have watched him for 2 out of the last 3 and believe we have maybe the best back up in football. Love the Doug Baldwin one handed catch but his release off the line even better. Micheal looks like the fastest person on the field and hope the Hawks start dressing him after this game. Larry David back to troll because your season is over sitting 0-3

  32. usdcoyotesfan says: Sep 22, 2013 8:20 PM

    I’m surprised the Jaguars came within 30.

  33. douglasmark85 says: Sep 22, 2013 8:22 PM

    Wow shehawks what a great game beat the most sorriest team outside of seattle.Great job.

    I’m not sure whether Carrol pulled Wilson to give Jackson valuable playing time or to cost me valuable fantasy points.

    How in the hell did Chad Henne throw for +350 yards against Houston last year?????????

    Good win.

  37. beastmode5150 says: Sep 22, 2013 8:32 PM

    You haters are unreal. Talk mess about niners being awesome, we kill them, it’s nothing, we win by 28 and SF LOSES at home by 20c it’s nothing. Jesus…

  38. jvillenole says: Sep 22, 2013 8:35 PM

    Stinks to be the doormat of the NFL, but the Jags have started more rookies this year than any team in the NFL.

    New coach, new owner. Might as well be an expansion team. It is a travesty what Gene Smith did to this franchise.

    I will say this. They will not end up the worst team in the NFL this year. They actually do play pretty good defense, and they are missing five starters, including two big starters in Blackmon and Lewis on offense.

    Go Jags

  39. 8man says: Sep 22, 2013 8:42 PM

    Seattle and Miami in the Super Bowl. Not a prediction, but it could happen.

    Tavares Jackson always played well off the bench…starting…not so much.

    But we will take him back in Minnesota…eh? Eh?….come on!

  42. cwk22 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:07 PM

    So far thegreatgabbert is silent. After all the ” wounded jaguar” is going to win comments I guess that is to be expected. Ha ha ha.

  43. beastmode5150 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:11 PM

    Since most of you didn’t watch, the hawks had backups in beginning second half, and third stringers in for the 4th quarter. Also, Jacks had a gift TD from a fumble in our own red zone. Really was 45-10

  44. scmems07 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:15 PM

    Man, I wish my team could get a cupcake schedule too! Gave up 17 pts to the worst team in history, and did anyone notice Sherman got beat for a td but shorts dropped it, what a joke.

  46. mjw9326mjw9326 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:20 PM

    I’m surprised it was not worse. I would advise any NFL team to use the threat of a trade to the Jags as leverage. Are you listening Bills? If Byrd wants so much money, trade him there and let him rot in a horrible situation with lots of money.

  47. realitycheckbaby says: Sep 22, 2013 9:22 PM

    Also, Seattle has a brutal schedule, especially compared to the whiners, take a look at who each team has whom, home and away.

  51. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Sep 22, 2013 9:28 PM

    You could just see this train wreck coming. The best defense in the NFL meets the worst offense.

  52. taylorgangtrippymane says: Sep 22, 2013 9:28 PM

    The only reason the Jags scored was because Seattle took their starters out

  53. natepalmer1 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:29 PM

    The K man loses again! HaHa…Poor Frisco, saute’ and simmer…Kapperdink is a bust…The Rams will thrash them this Thursday, bank on it! GO SEAHAWKS!!!

  54. beastmode5150 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:32 PM

    Can’t wait to add Harvin and Okung.

  55. tim8450 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:34 PM

    Maybe the Jags could trade their best player to a playoff contender for a future draft pick, it worked for the Browns! I’m talking about you MJD,

  56. tonynevins says: Sep 22, 2013 9:44 PM

    i dont understand all the hype,big deal Kansas city beat them by 26 points…and the KC defense didnt even let there offense close to the endzone. (no field goals or touchdowns).

  57. beastmode5150 says: Sep 22, 2013 9:45 PM

    Tim, nobody wants MJD, he’s old.

  58. johnnyprc says: Sep 22, 2013 9:48 PM

    it was WAY worse that the score even says – Seattle played its #2 offense through 3rd/4th – and player #3 defense through same period. Jags wouldn’t have scored more than 7 otherwise.

  59. beastmode5150 says: Sep 22, 2013 10:06 PM

    What Johnny said , I was there, we had guys in on both sides of the ball in the second half I thought were on practice squad.

    ———————————————–
    For the fans who don’t watch games. Seattle played their back ups half way through the third quarter. We are talking full-squad QB, HB, offensive/defensive line, WR/CB. I thought Richard Sherman addressed this after the 49ers game :)

  61. greatestgamensports says: Sep 22, 2013 10:31 PM

    No your still an idiot for taking a Defense in the 5th!

    GOULET!!!

    That is all..Go Hawks!!

  63. rajbais says: Sep 22, 2013 11:23 PM

    Wrong! The outcome was greater for Jacksonville than expected!

    They were lucky enough to not get shut out!

    Seattle looked like it was ready for a 45-0 beat down before the game. Apparently Century Link Field ain’t that noisy.

    “the most sorriest”! Wow, must be a 49er fan. Okay, time to start bragging about the rings you won decades ago.

  65. i10east says: Sep 23, 2013 12:01 AM

    Seattle kicked our butts no doubt, but they didn’t take out any defensive players. To all of the people saying “that’s the only reason that the Jags scored any points”. Just saying…

  66. fwbrodie says: Sep 23, 2013 12:31 AM

    Carroll took it easy on his pal Gus. Didn’t know he had it in him. What a gentleman.

  67. david10654 says: Sep 23, 2013 12:43 AM

    How Jacksonville scored 17(all in the 2nd half)

    The first 7 points came off of a pass play in the seahawks own endzone. The ball bounced of the TE’s hands and into the LB who ran it to the 2. MJD was then able to muscle his way in.

    The Field Goal came off on a blown assignment by two of Seattles linebackers. Shorts was able to run free(giving jax a large sum of their total yardage) for about 60 until Thomas pushed him out around the 20.

    The last score was when Seattle did in fact have their 2nd String in, with maybe only bam bam kam still playing. This Defense made up for it by forcing an int later on in the game.

    Seahawks annihilated the Jaguars

  68. dougchvrs says: Sep 23, 2013 1:09 PM

    @jakec4: Because HAWKS are to “CLASS” to run up score. They also took out key players in 3rd-4th QTR……………………….GO HAWKS!!!!!

  69. dougchvrs says: Sep 23, 2013 1:26 PM

    @larrydavid: No we beat the sorriest team LAST week! GO HAWKS!!

  70. Mr. Wright 212 says: Sep 23, 2013 1:32 PM

    The only starter who was in late was Chancellor. I was watching the game.

  71. capn0bvious says: Sep 26, 2013 12:30 AM

    This was the first time I had seen a game featuring the Jaguars in like, forever.. they have interesting looking 2-tone helmets. That’s about the best thing I can say about them.
