Eddie Lacy got the start at running back with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise both sitting out. He got the workhorse treatment on the Seahawks’ opening drive before Russell Wilson started feeding Doug Baldwin, who missed last week’s game with a minor foot injury.
Kasen Williams followed up his dominant performance against the Los Angeles Chargers with another circus catch, putting the Seahawks inside the red zone.
The last time the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings met in a game of consequence, it was the 2016 Wild Card round. While that playoff game is still a fresh memory, these teams faced each other in the preseason last year and will do so again on Friday night. The game will be televised on NFL Network and streaming online at Watch NFL Network.
The Jets saw all they needed to see out of McCown on the first drive. He leaves the game after only four passes for 72 yards and now it’s Christian Hackenberg time.
The return of Mariota was pretty uneventful. He played two drives and finished with two completions on three attempts for 15 yards and another six rushing yards.
McCown gave the game an exciting start, but absolutely nothing happened between his exit after the first draft and halftime.
The Cardinals looked like they had a chance to scoop up a fumble and run for a touchdown, but Connor Cook came with the hit stick that nearly forced a fumble of his own.
Cooper Kupp got his first reception in a Rams uniform and then a few plays later got his first touchdown. He probably didn’t think it would come via fumble recovery, though.
