Standout cornerback Jalen Ramsey believes the Jacksonville Jaguars should be playing in prime time.

Ramsey expressed frustration that the NFL moved Jacksonville's game against Seattle from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. tomorrow, far from the spotlight of a night game.

"That's (wrong)," Ramsey said. "If it ain't 8 o'clock, it don't matter. I would rather play at 1 than 4:25, but it's all good. If we're going to get flexed, we need to get flexed to the night game, you know what I'm saying?

"Playing at) 4:25 don't do nothing for me. It don't do nothing for anybody on this team.

"At the end of the day, we're kind of like, 'D***.' We're balling and they're a good team coming in here, and we're still not getting respect."

A very small percentage of the country will get to see the matchup of projected No. 5 playoffs seeds on Fox. It will be broadcast in Jacksonville, Orlando, and Gainesville in Florida, and throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska, as well as half of Montana. An overwhelming majority will get the Philadelphia-Los Angeles Rams game.
