That was a generous spot for Eddy Lacy on 3rd down.

The Seahawks is running through our defense. I hope it's just a gaffe and they improve next drive.

Two hellaciously great catches by their WR's kept that drive going. Hard to defend that.

I'm guessing one wr drop, one sack and one holding on the offensive drive.

Indeed, let's see if we can hit back harder, though.

Not to be satisfied with just 1 redzone penalty, the vikings get another one.

There needs to be a stat called the 4-point play.

How many times a defense stops another team in the red zone and holds them to 3 instead of 7.

Or in the Vikings' case, how many times the offense biffs it and gets 3 instead of 7.

Perfect example of two franchise headed in two different directions, Seattle makes it work no matter what, Vikings find a way to screw it up.

Surprised Wilson is coming out again. He basically marched through the Viking D like a warm knife through butter- looks to be in regular season form. Why put him in again in a preseason game??

That's the last we'll see of Wilson this game. Too bad Tarvaris isn't their backup anymore.

Kearse questionable (wrist)

Gedeon looks to be OK. On sidelines.
