The Seattle Seahawks’ 2023 NFL preseason gets underway at long last!

After a 9-8 season and a playoff berth, the Seahawks are on the rise and ready to take that next step towards becoming legitimate Super Bowl contenders again. They begin their preseason against the Minnesota Vikings, who finished 13-4 last year and won the NFC North, but like the Seahawks they bowed out in the Wild Card round. Somehow, Minnesota pulled off a 13-4 record with a negative point differential, which we may not see repeated for some time.

In this era of preseason football it’s common for established starters to either have very limited preseason reps or not play at all. Geno Smith went from a QB competition with Drew Lock to the clear starter, so we should see a lot of Lock throughout the preseason, along with UDFA Holton Ahlers. Fans will also look forward to rookies like Zach Charbonnet, Derick Hall, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba make their Seahawks debuts.
