Seattle Seahawks vs Oakland Raiders takes place on Thursday Night Football in a Week 4 NFL Preseason 2013 game. The Seahawks will be looking to complete a perfect preseason run having claimed three straight wins until now. The game will start at 10 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Seahawks are looking in very good form; in three straight games they have only let through 10 points, which would make it extremely difficult for any side to beat them.
On Aug. 8 they got their preseason off in perfect style, claiming a 31-10 win on the road to San Diego. They followed that up a week later with an even more impressive 40-10 home win over the Denver Broncos.
Last week they came up against a very capable Green Bay Packers team, but again only conceded 10 points, in a 17-10 win on the road.
They return home today to face Oakland before their season opener on the road against Carolina on Sept. 8.
Despite only conceding 30 points in three games, the Seahawks have scored the second most points in the NFL this preseason, averaging 29.3 points per game. Their success has been thanks to effectiveness across the field, and in both pass and rush offense they have made consistently good gains. In pass they are averaging 212.7 yards per game, and in rush they are averaging 141.3 yards per game.
In contrast their opposition today, the Oakland Raiders, have had a terrible time in defense; conceding 79 points in their three games to date. They managed to defeat the Dallas Cowboys 19-17 in their first preseason game, but have followed that up with two losses, 20-28 against New Orleans, and 26-34 against Chicago.
