Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Russell Wilson matched a career high with four
touchdowns passes and the Seattle Seahawks stifled the Jacksonville Jaguars
in a 45-17 rout on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
Wilson completed 14-of-21 passes for 202 yards and an interception, with Zach
Miller and Sidney Rice each hauling in two of Wilson's touchdown tosses.
Backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who entered for Wilson late in the third
with the game well in hand, threw for a score and ran for another.
Marshawn Lynch rushed for 69 yards on 17 carries for the Seahawks (3-0), who
were coming off a 29-3 demolition of the reigning NFC champion San Francisco
Chad Henne, making his second straight start in place of an injured Blaine
Gabbert, struggled under center against Seattle's stout defense, connecting
on just 18-of-38 passes for 235 yards and a pair of interceptions.
Maurice Jones-Drew carried the ball 19 times for 43 yards and a score for the
Jaguars (0-3), who are off to their third 0-3 start in franchise history and
first since dropping their initial four games during the 2003 campaign.
The loss spoiled the homecoming of Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley, who
had spent the last three seasons as Seattle's defensive coordinator before
being hired by the Jags back in January.
