Seattle Seahawks vs Houston Texans takes place in week 4 of the NFL 2013 regular season on Sunday afternoon as the Seahawks – one of the few teams remaining in the entire league still to lose – look to maintain their perfect start to the new season. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Seahawks got off to a muted start to the season, only managing to score 12 points in week 1. However, that was enough to claim the win on the road to Carolina, with the final score being 12-7 in Seattle's favor.
In week 2 the Seahawks looked much more composed and were devastating against the San Francisco 49ers, defeating them 29-3 in a near-perfect display of effective offense and efficient, powerful defense.
Last week they hosted the Jacksonville Jaguars and piled on the points, winning 45-17 with their offense letting loose on the poor Jaguars' defense.
Russell Wilson has been pulling the strings for the Seahawks, and he has posted 47 of 73 for 664 yards and six touchdowns.
Today's test will be a big one though, and if the Texans were not a big enough challenge, they will also be taking them on at the intimidating Reliant Stadium. If they can claim another win today then their 4-0 record will be well deserved.
Meanwhile the Houston Texans enter the game at 2-1. After a strong start to the season things went completely wrong last week and they will be wanting to get back out on the field to rectify their poor performance in week 3.
After their opening day 31-28 win over San Diego, and a 30-24 win over Tennessee, the Texans were down limply against the Baltimore Ravens last week in a 9-30 loss. That game exposed a number of weaknesses in the Texans game that must be addressed if they are to reach the heights they aspire to this season.
