The Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings will face off in the 2023 NFL preseason Week 1 on Saturday, August 12th at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks are favored by 4.5 points in the game, while the over/under is set at 36.5 points.
The Seahawks are coming off a 10-7 season in 2022, while the Vikings are coming off a 6-10 season. The Seahawks have a new head coach in Shane Waldron, while the Vikings have a new quarterback in Kellen Mond.
The Seahawks have a strong defense that should be able to slow down the Vikings’ offense. The Vikings have a new quarterback in Mond, and it remains to be seen how he will perform in his first NFL game.
The Seahawks also have a more experienced head coach in Waldron. Waldron has been an offensive coordinator in the NFL for the past five seasons, and he has a good track record of developing quarterbacks.
The Vikings have a few talented players on their roster, including wide receiver Justin Jefferson and running back Dalvin Cook. However, the Seahawks are the more complete team, and they should be able to win this game.
