They should probably have never gotten off the plane.
For the Jaguars, they came to Seattle hoping to build on their modest two-game winning streak, and left looking like they were a team playing their first preseason game. The Seahawks did just about anything they wanted to against the Jags, laying waste to them in a 41-0 lambasting.
Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck was unstoppable, he threw four TD’s against the Jags, and was 18-for-30 for 241 yards and a QB rating of 125.1. The Jags offense was held to 199 yards, and Seattle piled on 379 yards, 5.3 yards per offensive play. The nail in the coffin seemed to come before the half, as two Hasselbeck TD’s turned a 6-0 lead into a 20-0 Seattle lead.
The beating continued in the third quarter when the Hawks added two more Hasselbeck scores, again one to T.J. Houshmandzadeh and another to Nate Burleson to make it 34-0. The Jags actually had a drive going late in the third and early in the fourth quarter, but David Garrard fumbled, and Seattle’s Nick Reed recovered the fumble and returned it 79 yards for a score to end the awful game 41-0.
Garrard was 18-for-31 for 188 yards with four sacks and a QB rating of 75.7. He also missed on 10 of his first 15 passes. Maurice Jones-Drew was held to 34 yards on 12 carries. The team never got into any tempo whatsoever on offense, and leading wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker was inactive for a violation of team rules. Sims-Walker caught a career-high two touchdown passes last week.
The Jaguars will look to get back on the winning track next week vs the 0-5 Rams at home.
