Play caller: Coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Analysis: Bevell, 47, has been calling Seattle’s plays since 2011 and previously served NFL stints with Green Bay (2000-05 — quarterbacks coach) and Minnesota (2006-10 — coordinator). … The Seahawks rank 10th in yards (358.7), ninth in scoring (24.2), 21st in rushing (102.8), eighth in passing (255.9) and eighth on third down (41 percent). … Against Philadelphia, the Seahawks’ most common personnel group was “11” (3WR-1RB-1TE) and “12” (2WR-1RB-2TE). But Bevell also used specialized groupings like 4WR-1TE and 1RB-4TE. … The entire offense goes through QB Russell Wilson. A terrific player, Wilson, 29, plays his first game at the Jaguars. He is 64-27-1 as a regular season starter, including 26-19-1 on the road. … Wilson’s 93 straight starts to begin a career are third-most in league history (Peyton Manning 208/Joe Flacco 122). … Wilson ranks sixth in passing yards (3,256), tied for second in TD passes (26) and 11th in rating (96.9). His 432 rushing yards lead the team and are second in the NFL among quarterbacks (Carolina’s Cam Newton has 515). Wilson is the only quarterback to lead his team in rushing and he has three of Seattle’s four rushing TDs. … The zone keeper by Wilson doesn’t appear to be a regular part of the offense — he gains his yards on scrambles. … The Eagles blitzed Wilson on only nine of his 40 drop-backs, wary of his scrambling ability. He is the NFL’s best at extending the play while staying out of trouble. … The Seahawks have started a whopping six tailbacks and none have more than 69 carries or 208 yards. … RB Mike Davis played 45 of 62 snaps against the Eagles (16 carries, 64 yards). Davis spent the first two months of the year on the practice squad. … RBs Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKissic played a combined 15 snaps on Sunday night. … TE Jimmy Graham had eight TD catches in his first two years combined for Seattle, but has nine this year (tied for first in the NFL). Listed at 6-foot-7, 260 pounds, the Seahawks move Graham around the line of scrimmage, splitting him wide and then taking advantage of his red-zone ability. Graham is essentially the No. 2 WR. On his TD against Philadelphia, he started from the left slot and beat S Malcolm Jenkins to catch a back shoulder throw from Wilson. … Nick Vannett (a third-round pick in 2016) and Luke Willson are the back-up TEs, and reserve OL Matt Tobin played 11 snaps as the extra TE in the Eagles game. … WR Doug Baldwin (29 years old/5-10/189) is on pace for his third straight 1,000-yard receiving season. He led the NFL with 14 TD catches in 2015. He has 63 catches (13th in the NFL) for 782 yards (16th) and four TDs this year. He played 43 of 62 snaps against Philadelphia. On his 47-yard catch, Baldwin got open against man coverage when the Eagles rushed seven and had no deep safety. … A first-round pick in 2014, it took until this year for WR Paul Richardson to become established. He had only 51 catches in 2014-16 (missed all but one game in 2015), but has 37 receptions for 592 yards and five TDs this year. … The third WR is Tyler Lockett (35-425-1) and Tanner McEvoy (4-94-0) played 11 snaps on Sunday. … The Seahawks have used two left tackles, two left guards and three right guards this year. … C Justin Britt (2014 second-round pick) and RT Germain Ifedi (2016 first-round pick who played RG last year) have started all 12 games. … Former Jaguars first-round pick (No. 2 in 2013) Luke Joeckel is playing LG (seven starts) and is back from a knee injury. … Ethan Pocic (rookie second-rounder) filled in for Joeckel at left guard and has started the last two games at right guard in place of Oday Aboushi (shoulder injury). Pocic was third-team All-America at center for LSU last year and started 37 of 42 games for the Tigers. … Seattle’s trade deadline deal was acquiring LT Duane Brown from Houston. … Brown is a three-time Pro Bowler who started 10 years for Houston. He missed the Week 1 Jaguars-Texans game because of a holdout; he reported to play one game for Houston and was then traded. .. Wilson has been sacked 28 times (ninth-most in the league). His scrambling ability allows the Seahawks to run empty backfield and/or send five players into routes. … Joeckel was booked for 1 1/2 sacks against Philadelphia and still seems susceptible to bull rushes.


Play caller: Coordinator Kris Richard.

Analysis: Richard, 38, followed Carroll from USC in 2010 and rose from assistant defensive backs coach to cornerbacks to defensive backs to his current coordinator post. His two predecessors — Gus Bradley and Dan Quinn — used the spot to become head coaches. … The Seahawks run a 4-3 base scheme and don’t stray from that regardless of the situation, much like the Jaguars’ defense. … The Seahawks are ninth in yards allowed (321.1), tied for seventh in scoring (18.5), seventh against the rush (98.3), 14th against the pass (222.8), 14th on third down (38.9) and tied for 10th in sacks (32). … Seattle has risen from 17th in yards allowed to ninth since midseason. … The Seahawks rely on a four-man pass rush to create pressure — they rushed five or more just 10 times in 49 Carson Wentz drop-backs on Sunday. … The Seahawks lost CB Richard Sherman (Achilles’) and SS Kam Chancellor (neck) in the Nov. 9 win at Arizona. The defense has hit the reset button and has allowed only 23 points in the last two games. … Seattle is plus-7 in turnover ratio (19 takeaways), tied for fifth. … The defensive QB is MLB Bobby Wagner, who is having a great season. His 113 tackles are second-most in the NFL (he has at least 100 tackles in all six of his seasons). … The first-group defensive line is DE Michael Bennett, DT Sheldon Richardson, DT Jarran Reed and DE Frank Clark. … Bennett leads the team with 7 1/2 sacks; he played 66 of 75 snaps against Philadelphia. Bennett’s 22 QB hits are tied for fourth in the league. … Clark has replaced Cliff Avril (the Clay High alum is out with a neck injury) and has seven sacks. … Bennett will try and guess the snap count — he has six enforced off-sides penalties this year. … Reed is a 2016 second-round pick who has 33 tackles. … Richardson, the 13th overall pick by the Jets in 2013, was traded to Seattle on Sept. 1 and has started 11 games (one sack). He is a powerful run defender who will be a test for Jaguars RG A.J. Cann and fill-in LG Chris Reed. … The second-group DL includes DE Marcus Smith, DT Quinton Jefferson and DE Branden Jackson. … Wagner shows tremendous range in the run game, able to knife through gaps to track the ball carrier. He has 12 tackles for lost yardage. … OLB K.J. Wright is second on the team with 91 tackles and never leaves the field. … The base-down OLB is Michael Wilhoite but he played only 11 of 75 snaps in the Eagles game. … FS Earl Thomas is the remaining healthy member of the “Legion of Boom.” … The secondary against Philadelphia was CB Byron Maxwell, CB Shaquill Griffin, nickel CB Justin Coleman, SS Bradley McDougald and Thomas. … Maxwell rejoined the Seahawks on Nov. 14 after spending 2015 with Philadelphia and 2016-17 with Miami. … Griffin played at UCF and is a rookie third-round pick. At 6-foot-1, he has the preferable height for a Pete Carroll cornerback. Griffin ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds at the Scouting Combine. He has no interceptions but a team-high 12 pass break-ups. … A three-time All-Pro (2012-14), Thomas didn’t miss a game in his first six years, but sustained a broken leg last year (missed five games) and had a hamstring injury this year (missed two games). … McDougald started 36 games from 2014-16 for Tampa Bay but was available as an insurance safety by Seattle in free agency. He has started four games.


Coordinator: Brian Schneider.

Analysis: Schneider, 46, followed Carroll from USC and has been the Seahawks’ special teams coach since 2010. His first NFL stop was Oakland (2007-08). … On returns, Seattle ranks 24th (punts) and sixth (kickoffs); on coverages, it ranks 17th (punts) and first (kickoffs). … Tyler Lockett handles the entire return game (no touchdowns) — 6.4-yard average on punts and 24.1-yard average on kicks. … P Jon Ryan is 22nd in net average (40.3 yards). … K Blair Walsh is 19 of 25 on field goals — his six misses are tied for second-most in the NFL. He has 32 touchbacks on 64 kickoffs.
