The Seattle Seahawks will try to finish off a perfect preseason when they welcome the Oakland Raiders to the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle comes into the game with a 3-0 exhibition record, having beaten San Diego, Denver and Green Bay, taking a 17-10 win over the Packers at Lambeau Field last week.

The Seahawks racked up 362 total yards of offense in that one, including 166 rushing. Rookie running back Christine Michael led the attack with 97 rushing yards, including a 43-yard TD run and backup quarterback Brady Quinn posted a 140.1 passer rating.

Russell Wilson commanded the Seattle offense for the entire first half and into the second, completing 11-of-17 passes for 126 yards with two interceptions. Marshawn Lynch took just three carries for eight yards while Doug Baldwin hauled in two passes for 36 yards.

The Raiders conversely enter the contest with a 1-2 record, coming off a loss at home to Chicago last week.

The Bears jumped out to a 27-0 lead in the second quarter, but Oakland fought back to within one score behind quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who orchestrated four scoring drives and passed for 93 yards and a TD, while rushing for 37 yards and another score.

Pryor’s performance certainly closed the gap at QB position between he and presumptive starter Matt Flynn, who was picked off twice by the Bears and completed just 3-of-6 passes for 19 yards.

“I’ll make (the decision) some time before the first game,” head coach Dennis Allen said. “I think the competition has been good. I think both at times have looked good. I think Terrelle has an extra element with his athletic skills that lends to some playmaking ability and we want to put him in a position to continue to do that.”

Pryor is scheduled to get the start for Oakland against Seattle in a game that marks the eighth-consecutive season that the Raiders and Seahawks have faced each other in the preseason finale
