Seattle Seahawks vs Minnesota Vikings: Three Things To Watch For
By Jacob Sosler
The Seattle Seahawks are set to take on the Minnesota Vikings at Century Link Field today as they continue their preseason schedule. In this article, I focus on 3 things to watch for during today’s action.
The NFL preseason is a difficult time for evaluation. The projected Seahawks starters see very little action, so our TV screen is filled with little-known players fighting for backup roles and young players easing into their roles. Today’s game will be a chance for many of these players to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.
These two teams have developed quite a rivalry. The last time these two NFC powerhouses faced off was last year’s Wild Card round. The low scoring game ended when Vikings kicker Blair Walsh missed a 27 yard field goal at the end of regulation, sending Seattle to the next round.
Despite the fact that the normal starters won’t play a lot, there are still aspects of today’s game that may have a huge effect on the upcoming season.
From the quest to find a competent offensive line combination, a troubled running back experiencing a career resurgence and a backup quarterback adjusting to a new playbook, here are three things to watch for in today’s Seahawks vs Vikings matchup.
