Oakland Raiders vs Seattle Seahawks
NFL Preseason Week 4: Raiders @ Seahawks
Oakland Raiders @ Seattle Seahawks Fri. Sept. 2, 2011 10:30 p.m. EST
The last preseason game of the year could turn out to be a good one with the Oakland Raiders traveling up north to take Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks. The most intriguing part of this preseason final on Friday night in Seattle will be seeing rookie quarterback Terrell Pryor get his shot under center for the Raiders.
We bet on the game at Oddsmaker where they offer good lines.
At this point in time, there is no quarterback controversy in Oakland as new head coach Hue Jackson has named Jason Campbell his starter under center for the Week 1 showdown against the division rival Denver Broncos. That could easily change after Week 5 though as Terrell Pryor will play the quarterback position for the Raiders if Jason Campbell struggles in the first five weeks of the NFL regular season.
With that being said, the preseason finale against the Seattle Seahawks will be interesting as Terrell Pryor should get quite a bit of time under center to show the Oakland Raiders coaching staff just what he can do. The consensus amongst NFL analysts is that Pryor will not be able to play the quarterback position on the NFL level, but he begs to differ and will have his chance to prove them wrong this Friday.
The Seattle Seahawks also have a little bit of controversy brewing at the quarterback position with Tarvaris Jackson possibly in danger of losing the starting role under center to Charlie Whitehurst.
