Seahawks Lose to Jags 14-26

From Seahawks.com:

The Seahawks turned the ball over five times, by virtue of three interceptions and two fumbles, and the consequential bad field position was the key to producing a 26-14 victory for the Jaguars. Byron Leftwich completed 17-of-31 passes for 252 yards, with touchdown passes of 30 and 7 yards to veteran receiver Jimmy Smith, while Josh Scobee converted field goals of 23, 41, 29 and 41 yards to the put Jaguars over the top.


Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was 21-of-37, including touchdown passes of 33 yards to Joe Jurevicius and nine yards to Darrell Jackson. Bobby Engram led the Seahawks with eight catches for 79 yards in his first start at split end, and Jackson had six catches for 65 yards.

Much was made of the rugged Jacksonville defense coming into the game and the young and inexperienced Seattle defense with seven new starters. Bad field position gave the Seahawks offense as much difficulty as the Jags defense, however. And the Seahawks young defense showed plenty of promise.

“What happened is, we were moving the ball fine,” said tight end Jerramy Stevens, who had three catches for 41 yards. “It’s just that we were starting from our own 10, or starting from our own 20. We were moving the ball 50-60 yards, and only getting out to their 40. If we had a short field, some of those long drives would have been scoring drives. We just played on the wrong side of the field today.”
