What to watch in Seahawks preseason game against the Vikings

Photo by Alika Jenner/ Sunday night the Seattle Seahawks are back on the field against the Minnesota Vikings in a matchup of two teams that played in both the preseason and regular season in 2018. In both of those matchups the Vikings strong defense frustrated the Seattle offense, and while the Hawks ended the night victorious, it was the definition of an ugly game. In any case, with the 2019 preseason entering its final two weeks, the Hawks are set to play three games over the next twelve days. In those three games the team will get a chance to gather enough information to make...

How to watch Seahawks-Vikings 2019 NFL preseason game

Photo by Joe Robbins/ The Seattle Seahawks’ 2019 NFL preseason continues with a nationally televised showdown at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday evening from Minneapolis. Seattle barely played any starters in its win over the Denver Broncos last week, but they do intend to have starters get in at least a few series against a Vikings team that is coming off an entertaining 34-25 victory over the New Orleans Saints. This should mark the preseason debut for the likes of Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, Duane Brown, and many others. We’ll also get to see more of DK Metcalf, John Ursua,...

Analyzing the Steelers Preseason Week 2 win over the Chiefs, by the numbers

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Steelers managed to pull off a victory, but was their statistical performance worthy enough to deem the game a success? Two down, two to go. Preseason Week 2 is now behind us. The Steelers have now played their second game, and this time many more of the typical starters saw the field. With just five or six players who are projected starters for the regular season not suiting up, there was a much better feel early on that this was much closer to the team who will take the field in Foxborough in a mere three weeks. But did they Steelers perform in a manner...

PFF’s first preseason mock draft has Cincinnati taking a QB

Photo by Steve Dykes/ The restart button is about to be pressed. The Cincinnati Bengals have been led by Andy Dalton for almost a decade. Immediately starting all 16 games as a rookie in 2011, the veteran will need a solid season in 2019 to maintain that starting spot. If the Bengals have an underwhelming 2019, they’ll be primed to select one of the top quarterbacks of the 2020 NFL Draft. Unlike in 2019, the top few players in 2020 will be quarterbacks.

The Steelers took to Heinz Field for the second-straight week, but the energy and excitement of last week’s opener was toned down into a reserved tone and a desire to succeed in memory of a beloved coach who passed away last Sunday.

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Let’s offer some thoughts as the preseason rolls on Whether it’s a John Mara decision, a Pat Shurmur/Dave Gettleman decision or a combination of all of the above, Eli Manning is going to be the starting quarterback for the New York Giants to begin the 2019 season. He is going to continue to be the starting quarterback until he either proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can no longer play at a capable level, which neither I nor the organization believes is currently the case, or the Giants fall hopelessly out of playoff contention.

The defense, on the other hand, allowed one big play - a sneaky wheel route to the running back where Jaylon Smith was picked by a shallow crossing route - but was otherwise stout, forcing two punts from Los Angeles' (mostly) second-team...
