Seattle won its first three preseason games, including a 44-14 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. The game against the Raiders will be Seattle's first since head coach Pete Carroll named Russell Wilson the team's starting quarterback. Wilson made his first start last week and played well enough to win the starting job over Matt Flynn.
Wilson has completed 35-of-52 passes this preseason for 464 yards and five touchdowns. He has also gained 150 rushing yards on 10 attempts. Flynn missed Seattle's last preseason game due to an elbow injury, but both he and Wilson are expected to play against the Raiders.
The Raiders enter Thursday's game 1-2 during this preseason. They will look to get Carson Palmer going after the quarterback has struggled during Oakland's first three preseason games. Palmer has completed 33-of-56 passes for 321 yards, but has thrown four interceptions to zero touchdowns.
Thursday's game will be the seventh straight season the two teams have met during the preseason. Seattle won last year's contest 20-3.
