What to watch for: Vikings-Seahawks

We here at the NFL had so much fun watching the return of football last weekend that we decided to do it all again this week. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks (10 p.m., NFL Network)

» Big test for Teddy: Bridgewater was solid in the team's preseason opener and seems to be adding tools to his arsenal with each snap. He had the Vikings within a botched field goal of beating the Seahawks in last year's playoffs, but can he handle what some believe to be a defense twice as good as the version from 2015?

» Will the next great Seahawks UDFAs stand up? Trevone Boykin was stellar in his preseason debut last week and connected with Tanner McEvoy, another UDFA, on a touchdown as time expired. But the name we're really keeping an eye on is Ohio State safety Tyvis Powell, a hulking prospect who earned heaping praise from head coach Pete Carroll after his debut last week.

» Get Moritz Boehringer the ball! The German sensation had one of the team's 27 total targets, but finished the game with zero catches. We're hoping his insane Pro Day and romp through the German professional football league are not just YouTube fodder for years to come.
