The Seattle Seahawks has burnt out the past few days addressing defensive end Michael Bennett’s decision and commitment to sit out during the national anthem on Sunday night in the team’s Week 2 schedule of the 2017 NFL Preseason. The Seahawks are now moving on from the topic as the roster prepare to play host the Minnesota Vikings Friday night
The Seattle appeared very good on both offense and defense sides in their 48-17 victory against the Los Angeles Chargers in their 2017 NFL preseason opener. The Seahawks backup quarterback Trevone Boykin and wide receiver Kasen Williams opened eyes with several performance-level receptions as well as the Oregon product defensive lineman Christian French completed a couple of fumble recoveries.
Meanwhile, running backs Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy each made a short snaps in the game against the Chargers is far from settled. Wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, on the other side of the field, could play while the standing of newly acquired cornerback Tramaine Brock is unknown for the game.
Seattle Seahawks kicker Blair Walsh will face his former organization for the first time since he was released back in November 2016. He didn’t miss a field goal or extra point in the wining victory against the Los Angeles.
The Minnesota Vikings, on the other side of the game, defeated the Buffalo Bills 17-10 in their 2017 NFL preseason game opener last August 10. Their opponent in the exhibition matchup will be the Seahawks, who are top favorite to bounce back to the NFL playoffs this year and should be a sensational trial for the first team offense and defense of the Vikings.
