Seattle was a fashionable pick to fall behind the upstart 49ers and maybe even the Arizona Cardinals last season after losing a chunk of its defensive nucleus.
Not only did the defense hold up, but the offense provided enough of a running game that Russell Wilson threw the lowest number of passes in his career on the way to a wild card appearance.
Seattle back-filled a few roster openings but didn’t make much of a splash in free agency. This would seem to project significant confidence their existing player group can take another step forward in 2019.
Not that head coach Pete Carroll would ever say otherwise. He told everyone who would listen he had a playoff team last season. It will be hard to doubt he keeps the Seahawks in the running again this year.
Kickoff for the Seahawks vs Bengals game is at 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, 8 September in CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA.

Buying tickets to the Seattle Seahawks game
If it wasn’t for season ticket holders with conflicting social plans, there might never be Seahawks tickets available. But there are and ticket brokers can help fans find some.
The NFL Ticket Exchange is the official NFL ticket broker. It is operated by Ticketmaster, one of the oldest and largest companies in the business. Both the NFL and Ticketmaster charge fees of 10-15 percent for their services, so expect to pay that much above face value, at least.
There are a wealth of other ticket brokers like StubHub.com to choose from. Be sure whichever you choose lists their fees up front and guarantees the purchase against fraud like StubHub and Ticketmaster.
Don’t miss it!
With Russell Wilson locked into the roster for the foreseeable future, Seahawks games will be nothing if not exciting. With all the viewing options available, fans shouldn’t have to miss a snap.
Seahawk fans still paying top-dollar for cable and satellite providers should consider switching to Internet-based, or over-the-top (OTT) television providers like the ones mentioned in this article.
These companies provide the same high-quality connections as traditional suppliers at a fraction of the cost and without any ugly and costly equipment. Take advantage of a free trial period to see for yourself.
