The Seahawks start their 2021 preseason against a common preseason foe, the Raiders. Here is how to watch, listen and stream the game and watch Seattle begin with a win. Or a loss. To be honest, it’s the preseason and while I want Seattle to win every game ever if they lose a preseason game most likely no one will remember it once the real games begin.
We probably won’t see Russell Wilson too much, if at all. My assumption is that he will play at least one series just to have some live action against a team not wearing a Seahawks uniform but we shall see. Not risking injury to Wilson is more important at this point.
The starters for both teams won’t play much, in fact. Preseason games are more about backups fighting for roster spots. That is fun to watch too, though. These guys play with passion and that is always nice to see. Either way, it’s nice to Seattle back on the football field getting ready for the 2021 season.
