Watch Vikings vs. Seahawks: How to live stream, TV channel, start time for Sunday’s NFL game

Football fans will get a new look at a pair of 2022 playoff teams when the Minnesota Vikings visit the Seattle Seahawks in the first week of the preseason.

The Vikings won 13 games last season and won the NFC North. That didn’t stop Minnesota from going one-and-done in the playoffs, however. The Kirk Cousins-led team lost at home to the New York Giants in the Wild Card round of last year’s NFL playoffs. A first-round playoff exit last season is something Minnesota has in common with its next opponent. After trading franchise quarterback Russell Wilson ahead of the 2022 season, expectations were low for the Seahawks. But Geno Smith stepped up and threw for a career-high 30 touchdowns and made the Pro Bowl on his way to leading Seattle to nine wins. Seattle’s season ended with a Wild Card-round loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Here’s what you need to know before tuning in to Vikings-Seahawks.

Prominent rookies could make NFL debuts

Fantasy football fans, get ready for the chance to see two of the top rookie wide receivers take an NFL field for the first time.

Former Ohio State standout Jaxon Smith-Njigba went No. 20 overall to the Seahawks in the 2023 NFL Draft—the first wide receiver off the board. Jordan Addison, a former All-American at Pittsburgh who played his final college season at Southern California, was selected three picks later by the Vikings. They will be on opposing sidelines on Thursday.

Smith-Njigba missed most of his final season with the Buckeyes with a hamstring injury. But as a sophomore in 2021, the 6-footer caught 95 passes for 1,606 yards and nine touchdowns. Addison was the Biletnikoff Award recipient as a sophomore. The award goes to the best wide receiver in college football.

Smith-Njigba isn’t the only first-rounder making their debut for the Seahawks.

Seattle selected former Illinois cornerback Devon Witherspoon with the fifth overall pick in this year’s draft. The All-American intercepted three passes in his final season with the Fighting Illini

The Minnesota Vikings take on the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night with a special 9 pm central start time. The game will be broadcast both locally and nationally, as it’s the only game on in that time slot.

Earlier this week, our staff took a look at both a player and a storyline to watch during the game. While you want to win every game, what’s most important is how players perform and grow.

Here’s how you can catch Thursday night’s preseason opener.

Finally getting their first shot | By Craig Peters

Special Teams Coordinator Matt Daniels will be working with a wide swath of the roster, and many of the players he’ll be leading will be hitting an NFL field for the first time.

“I’m so excited to watch these players get ready to go to work, to fulfill a childhood dream and put on an NFL uniform, again, get the opportunity to compete,” Daniels said to open his media session Tuesday. “There’s a transition, we talked about it from shorts to pads and how certain guys started to look and start to stand out. There’s also a transition from practice to the game. And when the big, bright lights come on. And I’m excited to see what guys start to show up in the game in the heat of the moment, when you’re under pressure.”

The opportunity to take an NFL field, even in an exhibition, has been a long time in the making. There’s a good bit of speculation that Ivan Pace, Jr., an undrafted rookie this spring, will stand out. Viewed by some as too short to make it at this level, I’m quite curious to see him when the popcorn is popping.

But I’m most interested in seeing Blake Proehl appear in an NFL game for the first time. The 2021 undrafted free agent suffered a knee injury before Minnesota’s preseason opener. He was still rehabbing this time a year ago, but he grinded his way back and helped the 2022 team as a member of the practice squad. That’s a long time coming for Proehl, who has made multiple plays on his opportunities at camp.
