The Seattle Seahawks are working their way through the 2023 preseason and after a victory over the Minnesota Vikings in preseason Week 1 they will try to keep their unbeaten streak alive versus the Dallas Cowboys this Saturday. OK, I am partly joking. Whether a team wins or loses in the preseason does not matter (still, it is always more fun to win).
We aren't quite sure if more starters will play for Seattle in this week's game or not. Head coach Pete Carroll has not commented on whether quarterback Geno Smith will play, for instance. Even if Smith and other players, such as DK Metcalf or Bobby Wagner, play they likely won't play much.
Some things to watch for include which Seahawks trying to make the roster play great. And which ones do not. The bottom line is, let's just hope no one gets hurt.
Seahawks vs. Cowboys preseason Week 2: All you need to know
Where and when
Preseason Week 2 will see the Dallas Cowboys visit the Seahawks at Lumen Field at 7 pm PT on Saturday, August 19th. At least once we begin the regular season there won't be games that start this late.
The weather looks to be a perfect Seattle summer day on Saturday as the temperature should be around 70 degrees F at kickoff. There is basically no chance of rain. There shouldn't be an issue with high winds, either.
Many players could be held out of the preseason games simply to either not risk them to potential injury or to let them rest from minor injuries. The question about being hurt becomes much more important in a few weeks when the regular season begins. But in good news, Jordyn Brooks is now off of the PUP list and should be ready to play by early in the 2023 season.
TV, radio, and streaming
As with all the Seattle Seahawks preseason games, KING 5 in Seattle will carry the game in the Seattle area and with any NBC affiliate in the Pacific Northwest that wants to pick up the game. But please, for the love of all gods everywhere, hopefully, the feed will not have as many issues as the feed had against the Vikings in preseason Week 1. Nationally the game will once again be on the NFL Network. Seattle broadcast team will be Kate Scott (play-by-play) and commentators Michael Robinson and Michael Bennett.
You can listen to the game on Seattle Sports 710 AM and KIRO Newsradio 97.3. The excellent Steve Raible will do play-by-play and Dave Wyman will be the color commentator. Jen Mueller will be on the sidelines.
You can stream the game locally at Seahawks.com, the Seahawks Mobile App, and NFL+ (NFL+ requires a subscription after a 7-day trial but it's completely worth it). And if KING 5's feed has issues again, NFL+ will just switch to the Dallas Cowboys feed. Not great but better than a screen saying Technical Difficulties.
