Seattle Times Bob Condotta likes the Seahawks defeating the Jaguars 26-21 in this weekend's matchup. "Hope for a Seahawks turnaround rests in a schedule that includes six teams the rest of the way who currently have losing records, including the 1-5 Jags, whose win two weeks ago against Miami snapped a 20-game losing streak. Even without Russell Wilson, Seattle is the better team and has to play like it Sunday."

Bleacher Report NFL Experts have the Seahawks winning 23-20 against the Jaguars on Sunday. "Geno Smith hasn't been able to get over the hump in his three games thus far, losing each of the last two games by a field goal. That changes this week as the Seahawks get a home game against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars who travel across three time zones to Seattle. The Seahawks are oddly 0-3 at home this season but should be able to get their first home win against a Jaguars team that has only managed one win over the Dolphins."

12th Man Rising Jake Luppino has the Seahawks winning 24-14 at home at Lumen Field. "With the odds certainly in their favor, Seattle has a real chance of gaining some momentum heading into the bye week. I expect two touchdown passes from Geno Smith along with one interception from D.J. Reed, sparking some hope back in Seattle with a 24-14 victory."

ESPN NFL Expert Mike DiRocco is predicting the Hawks win the game 27-20 and that tight end Gerald Everett will have at least 100 receiving yards on Sunday. "Seattle tight end Gerald Everett will have 100 receiving yards and score at least one touchdown. He has 13 catches for 128 yards and one TD combined in five games this season, but it wouldn't be surprising if he came close to those numbers on Sunday."

"The Jaguars are coming off their bye after winning for the first time two weeks ago. Seattle is in the middle of a free fall without Russell Wilson. But this is a tough trip for a young team in a tough place to play. The Seahawks get a much-needed victory."

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Penny Hart and mascot Blitz surprised two children fighting cancer, and their families, with Seahawks gift baskets and some personal time. The visit was done in partnership with Footprints of Fight, a local nonprofit that offers free services to families in Washington with children fighting pediatric cancer. This Sunday is the Seahawks' Crucial Catch game.
