Seattle Seahawks 24 Jacksonville Jaguars 30: Blake Bortles leads Jags into first place in AFC South

JAGS FIRING

Jacksonville’s all-round performance secured them one of the franchise’s biggest wins in the last few years. BLAKE BORTLES threw two perfect passes for touchdowns as the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Seattle Seahawks at EverBank Field. The Jaguars (9-4) intercepted three passes by Russell Wilson, including two on deep balls, and won for the sixth time in their last seven games.

This victory, coupled with Tennessee’s loss at Arizona, moved Jacksonville atop the AFC South. It’s the first time since 2010 that the Jaguars have had the outright division lead this late in a season.

The loss didn’t sit well with the Seahawks (8-5), who had two players ejected in the final minute. Defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was ejected for throwing a punch during a melee that included defensive tackle Michael Bennett and Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette.

More pushing and shoving occurred after the next play, and defensive end Quinton Jefferson was tossed. Jefferson tried to climb into the stands after getting hit with what looked like a plastic bottle.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll also got flagged for coming onto the field. Carroll walked into Seattle’s huddle, possibly to calm his players down. The ending did little to ruin Jacksonville’s celebration, which had a lot to do with Bortles and the league’s top-ranked defence.
