Game Preview: The Oakland Raiders host the Seattle Seahawks in both team’s final preseason game. Neither team is expected to play their starters for much of the game. Instead, the backups will get extended playing time as each team looks to narrow down their roster with final cuts.
The Seahawks head into the season hoping for improved play from a revamped offensive line. Seattle will continue to rely on the steadiness of Russell Wilson and a defense that is a perennial power.
Oakland fans are hoping their young core can take the next step forward and compete for a playoff spot this season. Derek Carr and Amari Cooper lead a talented offensive group. The Raiders added Bruce Irvin and Reggie Nelson to an already talented defensive unit.
