Is luck something that Seattle even needs against a team they already shellacked 29-3 in Week 2? Or will San Francisco be able to make the most of their home field advantage?
This is one of those rare games where just about everything went right for the Seahawks. No individual had spectacular numbers, but as a team Seattle played great, simply giving the ball to whoever was open.

The Buffalo Bills have tentatively agreed to acquire quarterback Tarvaris Jackson in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

On the Titans sideline is the question of whether second-year QB Jake Locker — a UW graduate also making his return home — is ready to take the reins from Hasselbeck.

Saturday is the Titans/Seahawks opener.
