The Seattle Seahawks face off with the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 8 late NFL action from Lumen Field on Sunday afternoon .
The Jacksonville Jaguars come into this game rested after their bye week but have some momentum after a 23-20 win over Miami for their first W of the season last time out. Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 1,465 yards, 7 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 59.7% pasing while James Robinson leads the Jags with 460 rushing yards and 5 scores. Marvin Jones Jr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. each have 300+ receiving yards this year while another four Jaguars each have 100+ receiving yards as well on the season. On defense, Damien Wilson leads Jacksonville with 46 total tackles while Josh Allen has 2.5 sacks on the year for the Jaguar defense.
The Seattle Seahawks will be itching to bounce back from a narrow 13-10 loss to New Orleans on Monday night football last time out. Geno Smith has thrown for 507 yards, 3 touchdowns and an interception on 63.4% passing in relief of the injured Russell Wilson, while Alex Collins leads the Seahawks with 260 rushing yards this season. DK Metcalf leads Seattle with 33 grabs for 537 yards and 6 touchdowns while Tyler Lockett has 29 catches for 437 yards and 3 scores. Another four Seahawks have 100+ receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Bobby Wagner has a team-high 72 total tackles while Darrell Taylor has 4 sacks and Quandre Diggs has a pair of interceptions this season.
Jacksonville is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. Seattle is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record and 34-15-4 ATS in their last 53 games following a loss while the under is 9-2 in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record.
I get why the Seahawks would be favored here at home, even on a short week. However, the Seahawks are starting to stumble in the race after losing on Monday night and the Jaguars probably aren’t going anywhere, but you have to imagine that first win felt good and has the guys feeling some kind of confident after finally getting the monkey off of their backs. The pressure is all on Seattle here and I think it costs them dearly. Give me Jacksonville and the points.
