Seahawks must be disciplined to stop Lamar Jackson...


After escaping the jaws of the Cleveland Browns with a 32-28 victory, the Seattle Seahawks return home to face one of the toughest quarterbacks they will play this season in Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll showered Jackson with praise while talking to reporters on Wednesday, drawing comparisons to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

“He’s as good as we’ve ever seen,” Carroll said of Jackson. “He’s as fast and as elusive as we’ve seen. Cam Newton has always been really difficult to play against. They have so much offense and all that. These guys, likewise. They seem even more apt than with Cam to just let him go and run and play football, just like you see the guys playing in college. He’s tough, physical, explosive, and creative. He’s throwing the ball well, too. It’s a real nightmare. Very difficult.”

Baltimore’s offense has been very run-heavy and physical throughout this season in addition to relying on both Jackson’s arm and legs. Carroll acknowledged the Seahawks must match the Ravens’ level of determination to get the job done.

“This is a game that really calls for great discipline,” Carroll said. “To play the running game and defense, it’s always discipline first. You think it’s just being hard, tough, and physical. We like that too, but that’s just part of it. You’ve got to do things right. This offense, more than any offense that we’ll face, will demand that we have to do right.”

“They tax you to the maximum,” Carroll continued. “It’s all about being really tuned in and being really focused. Every single play you have to do right, or the ball will break. It’s a great challenge. It’s exciting for us to try to figure it out and see if we can do it.”

The Seahawks will get their shot to try to contain Jackson and the Ravens’ offense Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT at CenturyLink Field.
