The Seahawks take on the Chargers on Saturday in Seattle’s second preseason game of 2018. Here’s what to look for and how to watch.
The Seahawks might throw the ball tonight, but who Russell Wilson throws to is anyone’s guess. Receivers Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and Amara Darboh are all out. But what do you really expect from preseason games?
There are plenty of things to actually look forward to seeing. The starters will go longer. Some maybe until halftime. Which will be fun because we might see the offensive line and Chris Carson run the ball for a few drives. This would give us a real look at how well the team can actually run in 2018. (By the way, Rashaad Penny will miss the game due to his broken finger. But C.J. Prosise will play!)
Defensively, 12s will get to see if Shaquem Griffin can replicate his performance from the Colts game. Or if Rasheem Green play well enough where Seattle doesn’t realize it has a lot of needs at defensive ends.
Mostly, though, enjoy the fact that this game is a scrimmage and it doesn’t really matter if Seattle loses. Or wins.
