Vikings In Seattle To Face Seahawks Today
The Minnesota Vikings (2-7) face the Seattle Seahawks (9-1) today at CenturyLink Field in Seattle at 3:25 CT (FOX). It appears that Christian Ponder will be getting the start for the Vikes, despite separating his non-throwing shoulder in last week’s game against Washington.
Percy Harvin will make his debut in Seattle after suffering a pre-season injury that has left him on the sidelines up to this point. The last time Harvin played in an NFL game he was wearing a purple jersey.
Seattle sits at #3 in this week’s NFL power rankings, behind only Denver and Kansas City. The Vikings are ranked 28th, ahead of only Houston, Atlanta, Tampa Bay, and Jacksonville.
The Vikings fell to the Seahawks 20-30 last season in Seattle, despite Adrian Peterson rushing for 182 yards and two touchdowns. The Seahawks lead the all-time series 7-5, and are favored by 13 points.
