Both the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings will need to prove to their critics that they can actually contend for the NFC's Super Bowl berth this season, after Minnesota missed the playoffs altogether, and the Seahawks just barely grabbed a Wild Card spot with a 10-6 record — only to lose in the first round to the Dallas Cowboys, as Pro Football Reference records. The Vikings, on the other hand, appear to be going all-in with their preparations to establish themselves as a contender this season. In Week 1, they were a rare team that gave its starting quarterback significant snaps. Both Kirk Cousins and the Seahawks' Russell Willson are expected to see playing time in the Week 2 matchup, a game that will live stream from Minneapolis.

In addition to Wilson, the Seahawks coaching staff will keep their eyes on one of the more unlikely comeback bids of the NFL preseason, 22-year-old undrafted free agent wide receiver Jazz Ferguson, who was impressive in the team's Week 1 win over the Denver Broncos and could secure himself a roster spot with another solid outing, according to SB Nation.
A highly touted recruit at LSU, Ferguson wen through a troubled college career, to say the least, failing out of the school both academically, and with a positive drug test, according to the News Tribune newspaper. But Ferguson transferred to a lower-division school where he paid his own way, working for a catering company as he played his way onto the football team.
Following the 2018 draft, Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll called Ferguson, and made him an offer, making him possibly the feel-good story of the game on Sunday.
