SEATTLE — Russell Wilson tied his career high with four touchdown passes — two apiece to Sidney Rice and Zach Miller — and the Seattle Seahawks won big as anticipated in a 45-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Seattle moved up to 3-0 for the first time since 2006; this game begins a tour of four straight games against the AFC South. This matchup however, will most likely be the least challenging of the bunch.
Wilson hooked up with Miller twice in the first 16 minutes on TDs of 1 and 4 yards. He found Rice for an 11-yard TD late in the first half and located him again on a 23-yard touchdown early in the third quarter.
Wilson was pulled from the game with 3:54 left in the third quarter and ended 14 of 21 for 202 yards. The four TD passes mirrored his performance last December against San Francisco.
Seattle won its 11th consecutive regular-season home game, while Jacksonville underwent its eighth straight road loss. … Maurice Jones-Drew played regardless of a foot injury and was held to 43 yards on 19 carries. … The Jaguars have scored 28 points in three games, while the Seahawks defense has allowed 27.
The Seahawks are now 3-0 while the other three NFC West teams all sit at 1-2, with each having lost today.
