Check out this beauty of a fake fall that the Seahawks’ Zach Miller used to score his first TD against the Jaguars.
The Seahawks are now 3-0 on the young season. A tough win against the Panthers (who whooped the Giants this week) and the hated San Francisco 49ers earned the Seahawks more justification for being considered one of the best teams in the NFL.
The Jacksonville Jaguars game was one of the biggest locks in NFL history and the Chad Henne led team didn’t have a shot until head coach Pete Carroll pulled his starters with just a few minutes left in the third quarter.
Against the Jaguars, the Seahawks saw the return of Chris Clemons and Brandon Browner from injuries that kept them out for the first two games of the season. However, Pro Bowl tackle Russell Okung sat out his first game with a toe injury and it was expected that the Seahawks would use tight end Zach Miller in more of a pass blocking role since he’s one of the best blocking TE’s in the league. That was the case as Miller only had two catches for a total of five yards.
Each of those receptions were touchdowns with the second TD giving the Seahawks a 14-0 lead with just a few minutes remaining in the 1st quarter. QB Russell Wilson finished with four touchdowns before being replaced with Tarvaris Jackson, who finished with a perfect QB rating and one TD as well.
