Though they’ve battled injuries to important defensive players such as Richard Sherman, Cliff Avril and Kam Chancellor, and though they’ve had very little running game and a turnstile offensive line for much of the year, the Seahawks continue to chug along as one of the league’s best teams. They’re 8-4, but consider their losses: Eight points at Green Bay in Week 1, six points at Tennessee in Week 3, three points against the Redskins, and three points against the Falcons. A couple of Blair Walsh field goals or different bounces, and they could easily be standing at 10-2 to go along with last week’s massive win over the 10-2 Philadelphia Eagles.
On the other side of the ball, the Jags have quietly won five of their last six, with the only loss coming by three points at Arizona. Their continue to be question marks about the offense, but with a defense that ranks first in the NFL in adjusted sack rate and second in Football Outsiders’ defensive efficiency ratings, they can play with anyone.
“They are the best in the NFL by a pretty good margin here in scoring and all that,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “It starts up front for them. They have a big rotation of guys, a big variety of guys that they can throw at you. Their linebackers can fly and the secondary are a bunch of ball hawks back there. They cause you all kinds of problems. Forty-five sacks tells you the story and all the turnovers.”
Both of these teams regularly get left out of the Super Bowl contenders conversation due to a variety of issues, but this is still undoubtedly a matchup between two elite teams.
In what should be a close games, the difference often comes down to quarterback. Russell Wilson, who is having an MVP caliber season and has the magical escapability to help limit to Jacksonville’s rush, gives Seattle the significant advantage in that department, but it’s still easy to see this one going either way. No matter what happens, though, it sets up as one of the premier matchups of the week.
