The Seattle Seahawks (2-3) will play in London for the first time since the NFL’s International Series began in 2007. Their opponents are their former AFC West rivals, the Oakland Raiders (1-4). Both teams are coming off losses, with the Seahawks suffering a narrow defeat against the Los Angeles Rams, while Jon Gruden’s bunch were dominated by the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Seahawks rushing attack has been in full gear over the past two weeks, representing a pleasant change from how awful the 2017 team was. Even in defeat, their showing against the Rams was one of the best offensive performances over the last several games, even dating back to last year. They’ll be facing a Raiders defense that is ranked 29th in DVOA and 30th in points allowed. Hopefully Russell Wilson can take advantage and torch that porous secondary. On the other side, Derek Carr is sporting the best YPA of his career, but he leads the NFL in interceptions, and the Seahawks have returned to ball hawk form on defense. Their running game is led by Marshawn Lynch, although the defenders he’ll be facing are almost entirely comprised of players who arrived after he left the Seahawks — Bobby Wagner and Frank Clark. Lynch struggled behind a banged up Raiders OL last week, but overall he’s averaging 4.3 yards per carry. It’ll be a bit weird seeing him going against the team where he became a superstar, though!
