Minnesota’s two defeats came down to the final play, with mistakes hurting the Vikings, who have scored 57 points.
“They are scoring points and they are doing it well,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “The quarterback (Kirk Cousins) is throwing 72% completion right now with five touchdowns and zero picks, so that’s pretty darn good. That’s a big part of it, but their running game has been solid as well.”
Russell Wilson is 7-0 against Minnesota, whose leaky defense must watch out for Tyler Lockett. He had TD receptions of 69 yards in Week 1 and 63 yards in Week 2, one of six receivers in history with TD catches of 60 or more yards in each of the first two games of a season. No player has done so in three straight games out of the gate, and Wilson throws the best deep ball in football.
It’s the 1-1 Seahawks vs. the 0-2 Vikings Sunday at 3:25 p.m. at U.S. Bank Stadium.
