The Jacksonville Jaguars released a statement Monday afternoon condemning the behavior of “a small group of fans” at the end of Sunday’s Seahawks loss in Jacksonville.

Multiple scrums broke out on the final offensive series of the game for the Jaguars as tempers flared between some Seattle and Jacksonville players. Seahawks defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson was one of two players disqualified from the game, and as he was leaving the field was hit by a drink thrown from the crowd and allegedly called a racial slur by a fan. That prompted him to attempt to climb into the stands.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll shared his thoughts on the way his team ended its loss while talking to Brock and Salk on 710 ESPN Seattle Monday morning.
