Let the games begin: Seahawks edge Raiders in preseason finale

Sep 3, 2011 - 6:11 AM Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Thomas Clayton and Vai Taua ran for touchdowns to lead the Seahawks to a 20-3 victory over the Raiders in the NFL's preseason finale.

Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson completed 5-of-7 passes for 88 yards, and was intercepted once in two series of action. Charlie Whitehurst passed for 140 yards on 9-of-15 completions.

Wideout Golden Tate caught five passes for 79 yards for the Seahawks, who open their season two Sundays from now in San Francisco.

Oakland's Jason Campbell was sharp, completing eight of his 11 pass attempts for 76 yards. But the Raiders' only points came on a second-quarter field goal by Sebastian Janikowski.

Oakland begins its season on Monday night, September 12 at Denver.

With Seattle deep in Oakland territory on the game's opening drive, Jackson was picked off by Tyvon Branch. Janikowski missed a 52-yarder on Oakland's ensuing possession, and Jeff Reed kicked a 25-yard try on the Seahawks' next possession.

Whitehurst led Seattle to its first touchdown. His 32-yard connection to Leon Washington brought the ball to the Oakland 15, and Clayton eventually ran it in from a yard out, giving Seattle a 10-0 lead six minutes into the second quarter.

Janikowski's 34-yard kick later in the half got Oakland on the board, but the Seahawks' defense forced three punts and three turnovers-on-downs in the second half.

Reed kicked a 36-yarder shortly into the fourth quarter, and Taua's four-yard run with 5:12 left capped the scoring.
