Think that the Orlando market will once again be showing an apology to those watching the NFL that they have to see the Jaguars game again on Sunday? It’s probably not the fact that Jacksonville is going to be on TV once again that is bothersome. It’s more the fact that Jacksonville is going to be on TV in a game that is probably never going to be competitive that is the issue. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the Seahawks are completely going to overmatch the Jags in this game, and we really don’t even have to talk much about this matchup. Basically every position on the board, the advantage goes to Seattle, and home field advantage and the fact that this is a second straight West Coast trip have to be hurting Jacksonville as well.
That said, it’s three touchdowns in an NFL game, and it isn’t all that often that we see spreads of 20+, and it’s even more rare that we see teams beat those NFL odds. The Jags are still professionals, and we think that they are in a lot better shape with QB Chad Henne under center than they were with QB Blaine Gabbert, at least in terms of wins and losses. Jacksonville won’t go completely winless this season as long as Henne starts some games. This won’t be one of those games that it won by any stretch of the imagination, but we do think that it is a game where Seattle is going to take its foot off of the gas pedal far too early to be able to cover this number.
Jaguars @ Seahawks Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars +20
