With the Seahawks starters seeing the most action of the preseason, Seattle led 13-6 by the time Russell Wilson left the game in the third quarter. Two missed kicks by the Vikings rookie kicker helped to keep Seattle in the lead until late in the 4th quarter. But Minnesota was able to score 15 points in the 4th quarter to get the 21-20 lead and a hail mary came up 2-yards short of the goal line as time expired for the Seahawks.
Ross Bell fills in for the reaction show this week with Adam on the road for work. Brandan and Ross take a look at some of the biggest plays of the game, including a look at Michael Dickson's first punt after taking over as punter full-time with the departure of Jon Ryan. On the Seahawks second drive of the game, we saw the ball appear to end up in the end zone without Russell throwing the ball. Defensively, the Seahawks consistently shut down the run and took away the deep part of the field to make Cousins routinely check down.
Offensively, David Moore continued to look like he will contribute this season hauling in a touchdown from Alex McGough. Chris Carson and Mike Davis shared the load at running back with the starters. On the line, Fant came in for Ifedi at right tackle in the second quarter, and both appeared to be serviceable at the spot. On defense, Tedric Thompson and Quinton Jefferson looked to be gaining confidence along with Shaquill Griffin who matched up well with Stefon Diggs.
Closing out the show, Better at Life this week is the tight end group who have come up with an interesting fine structure that includes a reference to the movie Napoleon Dynamite.
