Seahawks 21, Raiders 3 - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN

Seahawks 21, Raiders 3 - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN: "SEATTLE (AP) Just days after being named the Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback, rookie Russell Wilson was the last guy out of the tunnel - greeted by the loudest cheers during the pregame pomp and circumstance. Even though he's now the starter nothing felt different to Wilson.

 Maybe that's because for the last 50 games that have counted, Wilson has known he's the starting quarterback. It's a streak that will continue when the Seahawks begin the regular season next week.

''I wouldn't say I had a different feeling. ... The feel of the game, no, not any different. Just the reps were different,'' Wilson said.

 Wilson played just one quarter in his final tuneup before the regular season, so high-priced backup Matt Flynn led Seattle on three scoring drives.

The Seahawks (4-0) closed out the second perfect preseason in franchise history with a 21-3 win over the Oakland Raiders (1-3) on Thursday night.

 Wilson saw limited action just days after winning the quarterback competition and being chosen the regular-season starter. He is one of five rookies expected to start for NFL teams when the season begins next week." 'via Blog this'
