Newly minted starting quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are looking to close out a perfect preseason as the Oakland Raiders come to town.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll picked up a lot of flack for choosing to start Wilson over quarterback Matt Flynn, the presumed starter for the Seahawks. Wilson was fantastic in the 44-14 rout of the Chiefs, throwing 13-for-19 for 189 yards and two touchdowns. He also scrambled twice for 58 yards on runs of 31 and 27 yards. Carroll just announced Sunday that Russell will also start Week 1 of the regular season.
The Raiders got their first preseason win against the Lions on Aug. 25 in a 31-20 at home. Carson Palmer continued to struggle a bit, throwing 17-for-26 with a couple of interceptions. Terrelle Pryor only threw the ball five times, but he got 137 yards out of it for a couple of touchdowns. He also ran the ball five times for 90 yards and a touchdown.
