NFL picks and predictions, Week 3: Jaguars vs. Seahawks 2013

You might not see a bigger underdog in the NFL this season than the Jaguars on the road against the Seahawks in Week 3.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are in trouble this week. They will be making a big road trip to the Northwest to take on a Seattle Seahawks team that just clubbed the San Francisco 49ers, 29-3, in front of a ravenous home crowd. The Jags are coming off a road loss to the --*gulp*-- Oakland Raiders. If you really haven't figured out where this is headed, just take a cursory glance at SB Nation's latest power rankings.

There is nary an expert predicting the Jaguars to win this week. All 13 experts at ESPN, eight experts at CBS and two experts at Yahoo! Sports are taking the Seahawks to advance to 3-0 against the likely Chad Henne-led Jaguars. The Jags can take some solace in the fact that three experts at CBS are taking Jacksonville to cover the spread. The bad news is that the spread is 19.5 points.

In a league that prides itself on parity, it's rare to see any team enter a game a near 20-point underdog. The Seahawks are hot, however, and the Jaguars are demonstrably cold. The season is still young, but this matchup could be the biggest mismatch, on paper, we will see this season.
