Seahawks vs Raiders: The final game before the regular season

The Seahawks come into the game against the Raiders this week with a 3-0 record after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 26-13. Reed Odhiambo took over at left tackle and Russell Wilson continued his preseason dominance. 7th round draft pick Chris Carson ran with the first team offense and looked like he's going to lock up a spot on the roster.

With most of the starters likely sitting out against the Raiders this week, this will be the game to see who might put on a show to make a push for final roster spots. NFL rosters go from 90 players down to 53 on Saturday and we're already starting to see where the Seahawks will have difficult decisions to make.

According to reports the past couple days Jermaine Kearse, Alex Collins and Jeremy Lane have all come up as potential players the team could trade. Many think the Seahawks could look to trade for an interior defensive lineman with their top pick sidelined. 

If no trade happens, it appears the Seahawks have the depth at receiver, running back and in the secondary that there could be some tough cuts coming on Saturday.

By this time next week, we're going to watching the kickoff for the 2017 NFL season. The Chiefs and the Patriots kick off the season on Thursday before we get to cheer on our Seahawks against the Packers on Sunday.

GO HAWKS!!

168: Russell Wilson continues preseason domination with Odhiambo at left tackle, decisions ahead with the 53-man roster

The Seahawks pick up another preseason victory, 26-13 over the Kansas City Chiefs, as the Legion of Boom holds Alex Smith under 50 yards and the offense to only 3 points. Russell Wilson has looked incredible as he dials in his game this pre-season. Explosive plays to Jermaine Kearse, Chris Carson and Jimmy Graham were a big part of his 200-yard effort.

Part of the reason for his success was the fact that he was given time to throw behind an offensive line that, now with Rees Odhiambo at left tackle, looks like it may not have been impacted by the injury to George Fant. Despite Procise and Rawls sitting out another preseason game, the running game impressed with Eddie Lacy and Chris Carson. The guys talk about what that means for Alex Collins and some of the other backs on the roster.
