Seattle Seahawks Behind Enemy Lines

The Vikings’ first victory didn’t come until just last week against a struggling Texans team. Now, if the team wants to make it two in a row, it will have to pull off quite the upset.

Minnesota heads to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in Week 5 of the 2020 NFL season. The Seahawks are led by quarterback Russell Wilson, who is off to a stellar season so far.

Wilson has thrown for 1,285 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and just two interceptions in 2020 as Seattle has gone 4-0.

The Vikings need a victory desperately. Doing so, would put the team at 2-3 and give them a win over a clear playoff contender. However, it’s a tall task for the Vikings, especially in pass coverage.

Vikings Wire previewed the matchup with Liz Mathews, Managing Editor of Seahawks Wire. Here is the interview:

Finding a way to stop Russell Wilson should be task No. 1 for the Vikings Sunday night. As they say, Wilson has been “cooking” as of late and the Seahawks have secured a perfect 4-0 start for only the second time in franchise history. If Minnesota can penetrate Seattle’s porous line, that’s a step in the right direction.

Coach Pete Carroll made the announcement during his Wednesday press conference and Adams will almost certainly be ruled out on Friday’s injury report. Week 5 will mark the second-straight outing with Adams on the bench as he continues to battle a groin injury. Seattle has an early bye Week 6 so it makes sense to keep him out for one more contest and let him recover with a little bonus time.

The Seahawks are dominant in primetime and even more effective at home. Seattle is hungry for its fifth win in a row, which would be a club first to start a season. The Seahawks will continue their slow march to the postseason.
Seahawks 38, Vikings 12.
