Seattle Seahawks fans will have the weekend and all of next week to bask in the glow of an undefeated preseason, after the Seahawks dominated the Oakland Raiders 21-3 in the preseason finale for both teams Thursday night at CenturyLink Field.
The Seahawks finished 4-0, and were actually seconds away from a shutout. The last preseason game in the NFL is usually as meaningless as any can be for key players, but backup quarterback Matt Flynn gave reason for Seahawks fans to have faith in him if starter Russell Wilson falters with an 11-for-13, 102-yard, one-touchdown performance.
Running back Kregg Lumpkin made his final case to make the 53-man roster with a 20-carry, 71-yard performance, and fullback Vai Taua had nine carries for 49 yards and a touchdown.
Taua also led the Seahawks with five catches.
Defensive tackle Jaye Howard made a tackle of the Raiders' Mike Goodson in the end zone for a safety, and kicker Steven Hauschka made two of three field-goal attempts.
