Seattle’s third preseason game — the one that most resembles the real thing — definitely looked like the real thing Thursday.
As usually happens during the season, the offense and defense started slowly and then found their grooves and pulled away — beating Dallas 27-17.
Russell Wilson and the offense were out of sync early — missing a few pass plays, running inconsistently, having snap issues, committing penalties. And Darrell Bevell didn’t help by calling a couple of his favorite bubble screens — Doug Baldwin gained three yards total on both plays.
But the offense did finally get on the board for the first time this preseason — Wilson hitting Paul Richardson on a short touchdown pass after they had secured a field goal in the first half and then finding Tyler Lockett on a scramble play in the third quarter.
