RENTON (AP) —Seattle and Minnesota are meeting for first time since the Seahawks beat the Vikings 10-9 in the playoffs last season.

"This is a playoff team, won the Super Bowl a couple years ago and the NFC championship game a couple years ago," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said of the Seahawks. "So, our guys know the competition that they're facing. I don't think they think of it as like this is the wild card round or anything like that, but I think it'll be good competition."

Seattle continues to lean toward undrafted former TCU star as its backup quarterback to Russell Wilson. The rookie completed 16 of 26 passes and threw a 37-yard touchdown to Tanner McEvoy on the final play of regulation to give the Seahawks' 17-16 win.
