Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) at Seattle Seahawks (2-0)
I’m assuming this will be one tough weekend for the Jaguars. The biggest news in Jacksonville to week hasn’t been their 0-2 start or the fact they’ve scored just 11 points in two games combined this season. Nope, the Jaguars fans only care about one thing this week … Tim Tebow, as they been holding rallies for the free agent quarterback to be signed by the Jaguars management.
Yeah, he’s going to solve everything for the Jaguars (joking).
As for the Seahawks, their biggest concern should be no letdowns this week following a 29-3 victory over rival San Francisco on national TV.
Seattle this season is averaging 20.5 points per game (10th best in the NFL) with 330 yards per game average and 209 passing yards per game, both also 10th best in the league. The Seahawks are fourth in rushing at 121 ypg average.
QB Russell Wilson is 33-for-52 with 462 yards passing and two touchdowns (two games), while their leading rusher is Marshawn Lynch with 141 yards on 45 carries (two games).
To beat the Seahawks and gain their first win of the ’13 season Jacksonville must score more than they have the first two weeks of the season.
