The Seattle Seahawks made the trip south to take on the Oakland Raiders in the preseason finale for both squads on Thursday night.
Most teams either hold their stars out or gave them limited reps in the final exhibition game.
In a bit of a surprise, the Seahawks actually started quarterback Russell Wilson (and he hit Luke Wilson for a 25-yard touchdown on the opening drive) and are playing most of their stars, including cornerback Richard Sherman.
Sherman was probably licking his chops because the Raiders decided to start rookie quarterback Derek Carr.
Carr, however, has gotten off to a nice start and found receiver Denarius Moore who made a great grab on a pass that was behind him with the ever vocal Sherman in coverage.
You can see Moore’s catch below.
