Russell Wilson remains confident in the Seahawks offense

Russell Wilson remains confident in the Seahawks offense”

Favorites to win their respective divisions, both teams enter the contest at 1-1. In seven games, Mariota is 5-2 vs. the NFC, with 18 touchdowns, three interceptions and a passer rating of 121.4.

Despite this, Seattle still boasts a 1-1 record. Murray returned to practice on Friday after missing the previous two days, and is questionable for Sunday's game.

The strength of the team remains the same. Eric Decker, Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker all pose problem to defenses and if the Titans can run the ball effectively, this could prove to be a long day for the Seahawks defense.

Wesley Woodyard leads the Titans in tackles with 17 (combined) while Kevin Byard is second with 14. "When it's something like my upper body, it becomes, 'How can I protect it so it doesn't become an issue?'"

The 31-year-old has been kneeling during the national anthem this preseason as a continuation of Colin Kaepernick's protest against police brutality and social injustice during last season. Chances are, Russell Wilson won't be so charitable. And one of the keys of succeeding against the Titans and Dick Lebeau's defense is communication. The Seattle offense delivered another underwhelming performance and have been held to just one touchdown through their first eight quarters of the season. While I think the Titans will provide a challenge for Seattle, there is a clear pattern of the Seahawks seeming to come together in Week 3 of the National Football League season and I think it happens against here. Seattle's offense has scored just one touchdown through the first two games but its defense has allowed only two.

Scoring on Seattle at full strength is hard enough. The Seahawks offensive line has struggled this season, but Wilson is an elusive target with an ability to escape matched by few quarterbacks in the NFL. Whether it was the insertion of Derrick Henry into the lineup, better blocking in the second half or just wearing down the defense, the Titans run game showed up in a big way against Jacksonville.

Richardson joined a winning team that was bringing back its top skill players in Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and running back Marshawn Lynch, all of whom had scored a touchdown in the Seahawks' 43-8 Super Bowl XLVIII victory over the Denver Broncos in February 2014. Pictured: Earl Thomas and Frank Clark #55 work to sack Brian Hoyer at CenturyLink Field on September 17, 2017 in Seattle. Tennessee has a strong run game and a talented quarterback under center in Marcus Mariota. Running back Chris Carson could also see additional snaps. Wilson managed to make enough plays behind a bad offensive line a year ago to get Seattle into the second round of the playoffs. Against a familiar foe from his football past, Walker has had some moments and it would not at all be surprising if he is able to make some plays in this one.
