Jaguars lose in Seattle, fall to 0-3
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Not the best of homecomings for Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley who watched his Jaguars fall today in his return to Seattle where he served as that team's defensive coordinator since 2009.
The Jags lost to Seattle 45-17 to start the season 0-3. There were some positives for this Jaguars team that many NFL power polls rank as the worst in the league. Cecil Shorts III had more than 100 yards receiving, Maurice Jones-Drew scored his first touchdown of the season and the offense scored a season high 17 points.
On the defensive side of the football, Jason Babin and Jonathan Cyprien had sacks on Seahawks star Russell Wilson and Cyprien forced a fumble as well. Middle Linebacker Paul Posluszny had an interception and returned it to the 2 yard line to set up the team's first touchdown of the day.
Seattle jumped out to a 31-0 lead before the Jags finally got on the board.
Individually Chad Henne was 18 of 38 for 235 yards but threw two interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 45.3. Jones-Drew carried the ball 19 times but for only 43 yards. Cecil Shorts III had a career high 143 yards receiving on 8 catches.
The Jaguars return home next Sunday to host division foe Indianapolis at 1pm.
