Seahawks Face First Road Test This Weekend

The Seahawks continue their preseason this week with their first road game of the preseason, this Saturday evening at the Minnesota Vikings on August 28 at 5 p.m. (PT). The game will be televised on KING 5 in Seattle. Curt Menefee will serve as the play-by-play man, with Warren Moon moving over from his radio duties to handle commentary. On 710 ESPN Radio and 97.3 FM is Steve Raible joined by former Seattle quarterback Sam Adkins with Jen Mueller handling sideline duties.

The two teams have met 11 times during the regular season, with Seattle holding a 6-5 advantage. Minnesota has won three of the last five meetings dating back to 2002, including last season’s 35-9 win on November 22 in Minneapolis. In that game, Brett Favre threw three first-half touchdown passes en route to a 213-yard performance on 22 of 25 passing with four touchdowns.

In the preseason, Seattle leads the series with Minnesota by a 7-5 advantage. The Seahawks came away with a 34-17 victory at the Vikings on August 8, 2008, in their last meeting.

Next week, Seattle closes out the preseason visiting the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, September 2. It will be the fifth meeting in as many years that the two teams face each other to end the preseason.
