The Seattle Seahawks don’t like losing. And they have been known to play dirty. Just ask the Atlanta Falcons, when routed the Seahawks last year in an NFC Divisional Game.
At the conclusion of the thrashing, the Seahawks jumped the whistle and knocked several Falcons players on their behinds.
This time, after the Jacksonville Jaguars overwhelmed the Seahawks, things got ugly when Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett disrupted the Jaguars’ victory formation.
The 32-year-old Bennett decided to be a sore loser and lunged at the back of Jaguars lineman Brandon Linder’s legs. That move started an all-out brawl on the field.
Later, fellow Seahawk Quinton Jefferson tried to climb up into the stands and tried to physically confront fans after he was hit in the face with a water bottle thrown from the stands.
Police and security had to intervene to try to control the shocking spectacle.
Meanwhile, the Jaguars celebrated their first winning season in 10 years.
The Seahawks, on the other hand, are barely clinging to postseason hopes and fell to 8-5 on the season.
Muitple Seahawks players–who have not apologized for their part in the drama yet–could face fines and suspension by the NFL.
