Jaguars vs. Seahawks 2013: First half game thread

New, comments

The Jaguars are listed as 18.5-point underdogs in most sportsbooks, making them one of the biggest NFL underdogs in recent history.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will attempt to pull off the upset of the 2013 season on Sunday when they travel to face the Seattle Seahawks, arguably the best team in the NFL. After opening as 16.5-point underdogs, the line opened to as many as 20 points before late money closed the gap down to 18.5 points, according to OddsShark.

Two games into the 2013 season, the Jaguars have looked about as bad as imaginable against a pair of teams that won a combined six games in 2012. After losing quarterback Blaine Gabbert in the first game of the season, he has since been replaced by Chad Henne, who hasn't offered much more offensively.

Instead the Jaguars will likely have to depend on Maurice Jones-Drew to find some offense, despite struggles in the first two games and a foot injury that kept him out of the second half of the team's Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders. The three-time Pro Bowl running back is active for Sunday's game.

Here are the inactives for Week 3:

Jaguars

Blaine Gabbert
Mike Brown
Winston Guy
Alan Ball
Dwayne Gratz
Marcedes Lewis
Abry Jones

Seahawks

Jeron Johnson
Spencer Ware
Malcolm Smith
D'Anthony Smith
Benson Mayowa
Jordan Hill
(Seattle has 52 players on active roster so only six are named inactive)
