When the Oakland Raiders faced the Seattle Seahawks this August, the Raiders went on to a dominant 41-31 Thursday Night Football win behind three TD passes from rookie quarterback Derek Carr. But that was the preseason. The Raiders have since gone 0-7, and though the Seahawks have had a rough go of it, as we watch Oakland Raiders vs Seattle Seahawks live free online streaming or on CBS today’s game should be a Seattle win.
Raiders QB Carr started the game instead of Matt Schaub, completing 11 of 13 passes for 143 yards and four touchdowns in four drives. Carr has since taken the reins of the Raiders offense, completing 152 of 249 passes for 1,517 yards and nine TDs. But Oakland has struggled all season, save for a near win against Tom Brady and the Patriots and a close game three weeks ago against the Chargers.
Against the 4-3 Seahawks at CenturyLink Field today, the Raiders should struggle once again. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense have had a rough patch, but last Sunday beat the Carolina Panthers 13-9 on the road. As we watch Oakland Raiders vs Seattle Seahawks live free online streaming, look for the Seahawks offense to build on last week’s momentum.
The Raiders’ defense allows 234 passing yards per game and 130.1 yards rushing. That should open the field for both Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch, who hasn’t had a 100-yard rushing game since the season opener against the Packers.
Though Richard Sherman will be patrolling the secondary, the Seahawks cornerback expects Raiders QB Carr to go at him again as we watch the Seahawks game live today. Carr has been the most impressive rookie quarterback so far, and he shows no fear in attacking Sherman in their preseason game in August.
