Seahawks to play into November without fans

660

Home field advantage will not be a thing for the Seahawks until possibly November this season.

The team announced today that the first three home games will be played without fans at CenturyLink Field due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That means a Sunday Night game against New England in Week 2, a game against Dallas in Week 3 and Minnesota in Week 5 will be fan-less.

In a statement, the Seahawks said, “While CenturyLink Field has become the best home field advantage in the league thanks to the energy and passion of the 12s, the health and safety of all of our fans, players and staff remains our top priority.”

The first game where fans could potentially attend would be November 1st against San Francisco.

It looks like Lewis is securing the right guard position while Brandon Shell is starting at right tackle. The big question is still at center with Ethan Pocic battling B.J. Finney and Kyle Fuller for the starting job.

The Seahawks will have one more practice tomorrow before their scrimmage Saturday at CenturyLink Field. You can watch live coverage on Q-13 Fox or at www.Seahawks.com.
