The Seahawks play the Vikings on Friday. Here’s how you can see Seattle take on Minneapolis in preseason game three and socialize with fellow 12s.
The Seahawks face another team they will also play in the regular season when they take on the Vikings in Minnesota on Friday. Minnesota, after the Chargers, is also on Seattle’s real schedule. So is preseason week four opponent, the Raiders of Oakland.
On Friday we will get a longer glimpse at the Seahawks starters. As opposed to week four when probably hardly any starters will play for any length of time.) Russell Wilson and Seattle will give a stronger indication of just how good they might be in 2018.
The Vikings have a very good defense. If Seattle can run the ball productively a bit against Minneapolis, good things might happen in the regular season for the Seahawks as well.
Still both teams schematically are not going to be as complex as when the games really start. And they won’t be game-planning against the other either. So the most important thing to watch in this game will be to see if Seattle’s offensive line can block the Vikings defense. Blocking is blocking no matter how small, of course.
