RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Throughout the preseason, quarterback Russell Wilson and the starting offense of the Seattle Seahawks were never really stopped.
Wilson was on the field for 13 possessions in the four preseason games and directed Seattle to nine touchdowns, two field goals and just one punt in those 13 opportunities.
It's was an impressive rate of success, even for games that don't have much meaning or have opponents game planning to try and stop the Seahawks offense.
How much that can carry into the regular season is one of the biggest questions for Seattle headed into Thursday night's season opener against Green Bay.
Seattle returned to practice on Sunday to begin prepping for the Packers with wide receiver Percy Harvin on the field after missing the final preseason game at Oakland last week for personal reasons.
