Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks preseason

Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks preseason


That's because there are just 53 roster spots for the Seahawks as they start the regular season, and more players than that on the sidelines Thursday.


The biggest contest, for instance, is among wide receivers. While Seahawks like Doug Baldwin and Sidney Rice are locks for the roster, players nfl jerseys nike china like Ricardo Lockette and Ben cheap nfl jerseys china Obomanu are on the bubble. With one last chance to show their stuff, they'll be out to convince head coach Pete Carroll they deserve a spot on the 2012 Seattle Seahawks.


Meanwhile, though starting quarterback Russell Wilson takes the field first, Matt Flynn likely gets plenty of playing time to make a case for himself. The former Green Bay backup QB, whom the Seahawks brought in during free agency, was "extremely disappointed" according to Carroll that he didn't win the starting job. As Carroll said, he'll be champing at the bit to show he's more than a backup.


Check back throughout the game for updates:


In Seattle's first series, Wilson marched the Seahawks downfield with a combined ground and air attack, including a 25 yard toss to Golden Tate down the left sideline.

Flynn comes in for Seattle's first play of the second quarter.


It's been a game of challenges, so far. The third coach challenge of the game, already, came with 13:06 left in the second quarter, when Oakland fumbled another punt from the Seahawks. The ball was ruled out of bounds before the Seahawks gained control on the fumble, and while Carroll challenged, the ruling was confirmed: Oakland ball at the 20 yard line.


Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane gets the first interception of the game as Oakland quarterback Matt Leinart overthrows his receiver. Lane returns it 31 yards to the Oakland 10 yard line, but he is ruled down after official review at the 39 yard line. That made it a 2 yard return instead of a 31 yard return.


Flynn is able to get the ball to the Oakland 6 yard line and Hauschka gets another chance for a field goal. It's good and the Seahawks take a 6 0 lead with 9:32 left in the second quarter.

Taua was leading all rushers with 48 yards on eight attempts. Running back Kregg Lumpkin had 19 yards on five attempts and Robert Turbin had 14 yards on four attempts.


Taua also led in receiving yards with 59. Tight end Sean McGrath was next with 24 yards, but he along with all the other receivers had just one reception. Ben Obomanu, who is fighting for a spot on the roster, had two incompletions. Golden Tate, Kellen Winslow, Deon Butler and Braylon Edwards also were 0 for 1 in receiving.


Flynn once again leads the Seattle charge downfield, as the Seahawks take a 19 0 lead over the Raiders. They sucked up 5:27 on the nine play, 90 yard drive. Flynn connected with Cooper Helfet for a 4 yard touchdown pass with 4:35 left in the third quarter. But Hauschka's point after kick was blocked by Oakland's Dominique Hamilton.


Defensive end Bruce Irvin, whom the Seahawks picked in the first round of the draft, is finally making some noise. cheap nhl jerseys from china He got a hit on Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor deep in the third quarter, during yet another series in which the Seattle defense forced the Raiders to punt. With 1:27 left in the third quarter, Oakland still had only four first downs and still had just 77 total yards. The Seahawks also had two sacks to Oakland's zero.


Seattle quarterback Josh Portis comes in with 1:27 left in the third quarter.

With Portis and the third stringers in, the atmosphere of this game has taken a distinct turn: It seems all but over. Wilson did his first quarter, finishing with 72 passing yards on a 5 for 11 night. Flynn, also, is likely done for the night. Portis will finish out the game for the Seahawks.


A sack for Irvin with about 9 minutes left in the game. That's 1.5 sacks for him in the night, so far.


The Seahawks defense continues to dominate the Raiders, as tackle Jay Howard tackled Oakland's Mike Goodson in the endzone for a safety. Seattle leads Oakland 21 0 with 8:14 left in the game.


The Raiders are finally on the board, getting a field goal with just 15 second left in the game on a five play, 54 yard drive. The Seahawks lead 21 3, which should be our final score.
