The Seahawks travel to Jacksonville on Sunday. The game has been moved to 1:25 pm to become the national game on FOX. Both teams are 8-4. This should be fun.

The Seahawks and the Jaguars are good teams. But Seattle is much more Carlito to Jacksonville’s Bennie Blanco. Seattle has won a lot of games over the last seven years. Jacksonville? Not so much.

But the Jaguars have a new swagger and a great defense. They have two shutdown corners and a very good and young running back. If Russell Wilson were the quarterback in Jacksonville, the Jaguars might be the best team in professional football.

And that’s the problem for the Jags. Blake Bortles, Jacksonville’s current quarterback, is not terrible but he isn’t very good either. Seattle might not be able to score a bunch of points on Sunday, but because of Bortles the Seahawks can limit Jacksonville too.

If the game is close at the end, who would rather have leading your offense, Wilson or Bortles?

Jacksonville players are doing their best to say this isn’t a statement game. But a win for the Jaguars on Sunday might signal their arrival on the national stage. “I don’t know if you can quite say it’s a statement game,” Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson told USA Today.

But maybe the Jags should view the contest as a statement game because it is the kind of game the Seahawks are used to but the Jaguars are new to. Jacksonville should remember, the Seahawks are coming and hell comes with them.
