The 0-7 Oakland Raiders travel to Seattle this weekend to take on the defending Super Bowl champions. And while the 4-3 Seahawks have already lost as many games as they did all of last year, they still are an opponent never to be taken lightly on their home field. Of course, the winless Silver & Black can’t take any team lightly these days as they look to snap a 13-game losing streak dating back to last season.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
Just like in the regular season Percy Harvin’s return to the field in the postseason was short lived as Harvin will not be playing against San Francisco this weekend.
The 3 big names dealing with injuries heading into the NFC Championship Game could all play. The 49ers figure to have both Carlos Rogers and Will Tukuafu ready to go, while Seattle’s Percy Harvin is a big question mark and will remain so up until kickoff.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said he won’t know Harvin’s status for the NFC Championship game against the 49ers until Wednesday or Thursday.
When Seattle traded for Percy Harvin during the offseason, they weren’t expecting to only have him for one game this season. Now that the Playoffs are set, it looks like Harvin may be able to return for Seattle’s next game.
The division rivalry between the 49ers and Seahawks has been completely one sided as of late. Seattle has won the past two meetings and will look to make it 3 straight in a game that holds playoff implications for both sides.
The 49ers and Seahawks seem to be positioning themselves for a two-team race, and we’re not talking about the NFC West — we’re talking about the NFC, period.
