No suspensions expected from Seahawks-Jaguars melee
The NFL is still investigating what transpired at the end of Sunday’s game between the Seahawks and Jaguars, but no suspensions are expected.
The Jaguars released a statement Monday, saying once they identify they fans who threw objects onto the field, they will be banned from attending future Jaguars games.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for running onto the field, said following the loss if was “unfortunate” how the game ended.
“I really don’t like the way the game ended,” Carroll told reporters Monday. “The level that we play at, that’s not an excuse for going over the top like that. All these guys have heard that and they understand that and we don’t ever want to look like that.”
Jacksonville will win the AFC South — The Titans were quite possibly the worst 8-4 team entering Sunday’s game against the lowly Cardinals in recent memory. Tennessee had had a cake schedule of late, but haven’t been impressive in any of their wins. Sunday’s game marked the third in a row they’ve faced backup QBs and Blaine Gabbert was able to beat them. While Tennessee (8-5) beat the Jaguars in Week 2, they won’t beat them again in the final regular season game, a matchup where Jacksonville can not only clinch the division, but knock their rivals out of the playoffs.
