Seahawks beat Raiders, finish 4-0 preseason

SEATTLE -- Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson played just one quarter in his final tuneup before the regular season, so high-priced backup Matt Flynn led Seattle on three scoring drives. The Seahawks closed out the second perfect preseason in franchise history with a 21-3 win over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night.

Wilson saw limited action just days after winning the quarterback competition and being chosen the regular-season starter. He is one of five rookies expected to start for NFL teams when the season begins next week.

Flynn played most of the second and third quarters and led Seattle to a pair of touchdowns. That was more than the Seahawks needed thanks to a stingy defense that continued to impress. Seattle's starting defense allowed just 17 points while on the field during the preseason.
