In a nutshell: Seahawks 7, Jaguars 0. After the teams exchanged three-and-out possessions to open the game, the Seahawks drove 71 yards in seven plays to a 1-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to tight end Zach Miller with 8:04 left in the quarter. The drive included a 20-yard run by wide receiver Golden Tate after taking a lateral from Wilson and a 27-yard run by Marshawn Lynch to the Jaguars’ 24. Lynch carried three times for 35 yards and it was Wilson’s play-action fake to Lynch on a third-and-goal play that allowed Miller to be wide open in the right side of the end zone. The Seahawks drove to the Jaguars’ 29 on their next possession, but Jaguars’ defensive end Jason Babin beat right tackle Breno Giacomini to sack Wilson on third-and-2, ending the drive and taking the Seahawks out of field-goal range.
Players of the quarter: The Seahawks’ defense. They picked up where they left off last week, forcing a tri of three-and-outs on the Jaguars’ three first-quarter possessions.
Play of the quarter: The TD pass. As we mentioned, the Jaguars totally bought Wilson’s play-action fake to Lynch, which allowed Miller to be ridiculously wide open in the end zone.
Number of the quarter: 5. The number of times the Seahawks’ No. 1-ranked defense stopped the Jaguars for a loss in their nine first-quarter plays.
In a nutshell: Seahawks 24, Jaguars 0. Russell Wilson to Zach Miller worked again on the second play of the second quarter, capping a six-play, 40-yard TD drive that started in the opening quarter. Again, as was the case on their first-quarter scoring connection, Miller was wide open in the right corner of the end zone on the first-and-goal play. Wilson’s 20-yard pass to Golden Tate on third-and-10 set up the TD pass. The Seahawks stretched their lead to 17-0 with 9:40 left in the half on a 21-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka. The Seahawks had a first-and-goal from the 5, but the Jaguars stopped Marshawn Lynch for a 1-yard loss on first down and a 2-yard loss on third down. The Seahawks made it 24-0 as Wilson passed 11 yards to Sidney Rice for a TD with 10 seconds to play. Wilson was 4-of-4 on the five play, 79-yard drive, including completions of 30 to Tate and 23 yards to Rice.
Player of the quarter: Bobby Wagner. The Seahawks’ second-year middle linebacker made sure the Jaguars did not score after recovering a fumble at the Seattle 44. On a Chad Henne pass that initially kissed off the helmet of center Brad Meester, Wagner tipped the ball into the air and then made a lunging interception to set up Wilson’s TD pass to Rice.
Play of the quarter: A 17-yard pass from Wilson to Jermaine Kearse that set up Hauschka’s field goal. Kearse was the only wide receiver on the field, as the Seahawks were in a two-tight, two-back set. He also was on the left side, with the tight ends on the right side. Wilson went to him anyway, and Kearse made the catch. But Kearse injured an ankle on the play and his return was listed as questionable.
Number of the quarter: 3. It’s Wilson’s uniform number, and he was 4 of 4 on the final TD drive and 2 of 2 on the first.
In a nutshell: Seahawks 38, Jaguars 10. Russell Wilson threw his fourth TD pass of the game – tying his career high – on the Seahawks’ third play of the quarter. This one went 23 yards to Sidney Rice. The TD was set up when nose tackle Brandon Mebane recovered Denard Robinson’s fumble out of a wild-cat formation on the third play of the half. The Jaguars scored their second TD of the season with 6:20 left in the quarter on a 2-yard run by Maurice Jones-Drew. The score was set up when Wilson’s third-down pass from the end zone went off wide receiver Golden Tate and was intercepted by Jaguars’ linebacker Paul Posluszny and returned 9 yards. The Seahawks got on the board again with 1:28 left in the quarter, this time on Doug Baldwin’s one-handed grab of a 35-yard pass from backup QB Tarvaris Jackson for a TD that made it 38-7. Jackson, who took over for Wilson on the series, was 3 of 3 for 49 yards on the five-play, 58-yard drive. The Jaguars then used a 59-yard pass play from Chad Henne to Cecil Shorts to set up a 33-yard Josh Scobee field goal with 6 seconds left in the quarter.
Player of the quarter: Bobby Wagner. After making an acrobatic interception to set up a score in the second quarter, the Seahawks’ middle linebacker had four tackles in the third quarter to go with the game-high five he had in the first half.
Play of the quarter: Baldwin’s catch, of course. He not only made the one-handed grab, he did it with Jaguars cornerback Will Blackmon all over him.
Number of the quarter: 8. Quarters the Seahawks’ defense had gone without allowing a TD. The first came in the second quarter of the season opener against the Panthers.
In a nutshell: Seahawks 45, Jaguars 17. The Jaguars made it 38-17 when Jordan Todman scored on a 3-yard run with 9:06 left in the game to cap a nine-play, 52-yard drive that included an 8-yard run by Maurice Jones-Drew on fourth-and-1 and followed an 18-yard Jon Ryan punt that LaRoy Reynolds got a hand on. The Seahawks made it 45-17 when Tarvaris Jackson scored on a 5-yard run with 6:32 left. The Seahawks’ backup QB set up his own TD with consecutive completions of 14 yards to Golden Tate, 35 yards to rookie tight end Luke Willson and 23 yards to No. 3 tight end Kellen Davis to open the five-play, 80-yard drive. The Jaguars were driving again, but strong safety Kam Chancellor intercepted a Chad Henne pass on third-and-5 from the Seattle 14.
Players of the quarter: The Seahawks’ backups. From Jackson, to rookie running back Christine Michael, to O-linemen Lemuel Jeanpierre, Michael Bowie and Alvin Bailey; and from linebackers Mike Morgan, Heath Farwell and John Lotulelei to corners Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell. This one looked like a preseason game as coach Pete Carroll gave everyone a chance to get on the field. And no one played better than Jackson.
Play of the quarter: Jackson’s TD run. Why not? Unless it was Chancellor’s interception.
Number of the quarter: 3-0. Which the Seahawks are for the first time since 2006, and on a day when the other three teams in the NFC West lost to fall to 1-2.
