Things got a lot ugly, including an incensed Seattle player, Quinton Jefferson, trying to climb into the stands in Jacksonville.

On the very next play as the Jaguars continued to knee it out, Seattle defensive end Quinton Jefferson was ejected for unnecessary roughness when he tried to rip the ball out.

Jefferson had been ejected with seconds left in his Seahawks' 30-24 loss, and on his way from the field to the tunnel, he had drinks and other items thrown his way by fans.

Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett ignited the fiasco when he rolled onto the leg of Jaguars offensive lineman Brandon Linder. Jefferson attempted to scale the wall into the stands and had to be held back by a Seahawks team official.

It was a balanced effort against the Seahawks with Blake Bortles throwing a pair of touchdowns while rookie running back Leonard Fournette ran for more than 100 rushing yards with a touchdown. As the two parties exchanged words, someone appeared to throw an object on Jefferson, setting Jefferson off. Jefferson tried climbing into the stands to fight the fan, but was stopped by security before the situation escalated.

"It's really unfortunate how it ended".

On what he had to say to Jefferson about his altercation with fans, Carroll said, "I told him that's pro football".
