Seahawks Vs. Raiders: Seattle Looking Good For a 4-0 Preseason, Leading 13-0 Over Raiders At Half

The last time the Seattle Seahawks went 4-0 in the preseason, Jim Mora was the head coach and the team went on to a 5-11 regular season. That was 2009.

This summer, the Seahawks are staring at an undefeated preseason with wins in their first three games and now a 13-0 lead at halftime over the Oakland Raiders at CenturyLink Field.

Steven Hauschka made two field goals and Vai Taua capped off an 11-play, 78 yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

Starting quarterback Russell Wilson, a rookie, completed 5 of 11 passes for 72 yards before leaving the game for backup Matt Flynn. The Raiders lost two fumbles in the first half.

Seattle is dominating the game, with 13 first downs compared to three for Oakland as of early in the third quarter, and a total yards advantage of 214 to 46. The Raider punted five times in the first half.

Russell Wilson is at the top of the depth chart for Seattle. A look at his college tape shows some impressive attributes.


Seahawks Injury Update: Marshawn Lynch Seems OK, Flynn's Pride Hurt

While the big news up in Seattle is that rookie Russell Wilson won the starting quarterback competition, the Seahawks do have some players they'd like to get back on the field as soon as possible. One is running back Marshawn Lynch, who is dealing with a back problem and was held out of Friday's win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

An arm injury -- a muscle inflammation, the Seattle Times reports -- kept Matt Flynn, the guy the Seahawks brought in to be the starting quarterback in the offseason, from making his case for the job over Wilson Friday. It's a tough break for Flynn, who is expected to be able to play when the regular season starts.

Other players dealing with injuries: CB Walter Thurmond (leg), LB Allen Bradford (hip), LB Matt McCoy (knee), LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring), G John Moffitt (elbow), OL James Carpenter (knee), WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) and DL Jason Jones (knee). Thurmond and Carpenter are on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list.
