Early Look: Vikings vs. Seahawks

EAGAN, Minn. — We’ve seen this one before.

The Vikings and Seahawks will meet at 7 p.m. (CT) Sunday in a preseason game, making it the fourth straight season the teams have met in exhibition play.

Sunday’s contest will be at U.S. Bank Stadium, the first Vikings game held at the venue since the season finale of the 2018 season.

Minnesota earned a 34-25 win in its preseason opener in New Orleans. The Seahawks scored a 22-14 win over Denver.

Here’s a look at the Vikings home preseason opener against Seattle:

Passing: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is likely to make his 2019 preseason debut in Minnesota, after not playing against the Broncos.

Wilson signed a multiyear contract extension with Seattle and is 75-36-1 in seven seasons as the Seahawks starter.

He threw for a career-high 35 touchdowns in 2018, tied his career low with seven interceptions and led Seattle to the postseason for the sixth time in his career.

Geno Smith started for Seattle last week and played the first half before being replaced by Paxton Lynch, who threw for a touchdown and ran for another.
