Odds Across Sportsbooks
Players from both sides dropped to their knees almost immediately, and the Seattle sideline appeared particularly distraught at the thought of potentially losing Tyler Lockett, one of their most dynamic offensive threats and a team leader.

Seriously, I don't understand kicking a field goal on fourth-and-3 from the 26 when you have Russell Wilson.
Vikings up 21-17 at the half. Seahawks allowed 14 unanswered points after taking a 17-7 lead. Two costly plays were Ugo Amadi's hold (negating a third-down sack) and Jason Myers' missed 44-yarder, which gave Minnesota good field position for their last touchdown drive.
He made himself an easy target by talking after the game, and many of you won't care, but credit to Tre Flowers for being a stand-up guy and answering our questions on his way to the team bus. Other #Seahawks veterans declined to talk about the mess. He and CB D.J. Reed did.
.@Seahawks injury update: DE Kerry Hyder Jr. will not return.
On a scale of 1-10, Quandre Diggs' frustration level with his corners is at a 21.
Mike Zimmer and Pete Carroll are both defensive coaches and they are about to watch a game that will pay tribute to the AFL.
Asked about what he and defense needs to do to come up with big plays in the secondary, Tre Flowers says: "More film. More film study. More... "Sadly, y'all want me to be Sherman." #Seahawks
.@Seahawks injury update: LB Jordyn Brooks is Probable (cramps).
And THIS my friends is why Will Dissly needs to get the ball more!! #Seahawks pic.twitter.com/S27LGjjAl3
Gerald Everett bullying to a first down, 14 yard gain. #Seahawks go up tempo now, down 10 with 12:50 left
Seahawks inactives: Dee Eskridge Rashaad Penny Brandon Shell Jake Luton Benson Mayowa Marquise Blair L.J. Collier
Jake Curhan in at right tackle that last #Seahawks drive because Jamarco Jones is questionable return because of an upset stomach. (not sure if he got that watching Seattle's defense)
Again: if Ugo Amadi doesn't blatantly hold the slot receiver on a third-down incomplete, #Seaahwks' rolling offense has the ball in decent field position up 17-7. Since that play, Vikings have scored 14 unanswered points.
Crazy dude in orange shorts, Vikings jersey just jumped out of stands, ran to midfield in Vikings' logo. WR Penny Hart started to run off the #Seahawks' sideline to tackle him--and his teammates and coaches got him back. Freddie Swain looked at Hart like "What are you thinkin?!"
3rd and 19, Waldron goes white flag with a screen pass to Travis Homer. Gains 5 yards. #Seahawks punt down 24-17 at Minnesota.
Seahawks announce Jamarco Jones has an upset stomach so that's why he's been in and out of the lineup.
Pete Carroll over at #Seahawks bench talking to Jamal Adams and Seattle's defensive backs after that easy Vikings opening TD drive.
Seahawks needed that. Darrell Taylor knocked the ball out of Cousins hands on third down. He recovered and Vikings get the field goal. But it's at least still a one-score game at 24-17.
Seahawks pregame radio reporting Marquise Blair injured his knee during warmups and that's why he's inactive.
And now Wilson has thrown an INT, his 6th of the year. Becomes the third Jets QB to have six INTs in his first three starts. Others: Geno Smith and Glenn Foley. #Jets
Rasheem Green collapsed a pocket by himself, but the play is negated by an Ugo Amadi hold away from the play. So there's that.
Alton Robinson finally getting starter-like reps at defensive end. And deservedly so. #Seahawks
Seattle’s offense is firing on all cylinders against Minnesota. Russell Wilson is feeding D.K. Metcalf at will and the run game is going strong, as well.
Watch Chris Carson roll for an easy 30-yard touchdown against the Vikings, aided by a nice block from left guard Damien Lewis.
Can't touch Chris! @ccarson_32 takes it 30 yards all the way for the touchdown!

Have a mentioned how much fun this game is already in Minneapolis? I mean, that Penny Hart stunt just tops it off.
Cody Barton now in with Bobby Wagner as the two LBs as #Seahawks go back to nickel.

Carlos Dunlap said the team is frustrated and disappointed with today's game. "We know we have way more ability than we have shown, but we have to go do it." pic.twitter.com/rkicm00Ku3
John Reid, who had been set to be inactive, will be active and might be the backup nickel today if one is needed.
Missed practice all week
As the week progressed, there was a less confident tone that Vikings RB Dalvin Cook would play Sunday vs. Seattle due to his sprained ankle, per source. Cook didn’t practice all week, it’s early in season, and going into pre-game warmups it was considered “unlikely” he plays. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
FF Today's Take: The Vikings and Seahawks don't play until 4:25 pm so we'll have to wait for the Inactives to come out to be sure, but it sounds like Alexander Mattison will get the start at RB for Minnesota. Mattison vaults into RB2 territory with RB1 upside.

Greg Joseph outdueled Seattle kicker Jason Myers, who saw his string of 36 consecutive successful field-goal attempts broken.

Adam Thielen: "It's been a different Kirk (Cousins). He's just locked in."
Vikings run a perfect pick play for Tyler Conklin. Doesn't score tho. Time out.
So close on Harrison Smith and the PI. I can see why they didn't call it. Hart was falling back even before Smith arrived.
Everson Griffen records his first sack in a Vikings uniform since 12/8/19. Welcome back, @EversonGriffen pic.twitter.com/1r8KqJLUWC
Ameer Abdullah back to return, perhaps an indication Smith-Marsette was hurt or that he was demoted out of the job
Mike Zimmer told the Vikings that he felt this was the best offensive performance he's seen in the 8 years he's been here.
#Vikings Injury Update: WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette is questionable with a toe injury. #SEAvsMIN
Eric Kendricks starts out his press conference thanking Lil' Uzi Vert for his music and providing him motivation on the way into US Bank Stadium.
Patrick Peterson saw Matcalfs 3-cone time and said no way he runs a China route on me twitter.com/pff/status/144…
Danielle Hunter figured out the play-action fake but wasn't enough to prevent the 17-yard pass
Touchdown Seahawks, Wilson 10 yards to Metcalf who beat Bashaud Breeland easily.
To cap it off, Jordan Berry drops the punt to the one-yard line
Seattle's no huddle is hurting Minnesota's ability to substitute this drive. Everson Griffen had to play 3T next to Sheldon Richardson at nose the last two runs because Michael Pierce and Dalvin Tomlinson couldn't get subbed in in time.
