Raiders Vs. Seahawks: Oakland Drops Preseason Finale 21-3 To Seattle

Coach Dennis Allen rested his starters in the Oakland Raiders' preseason finale at Seattle Thursday night, and the Raiders' reserves couldn't make up for their absence in a 21-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Pretty is was not. far from it actually for the Raiders, who only managed to gain 101 yards of total offense thanks to a final drive led by No. 3 quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor completed 6 of 9 passes for 55 yards, shining better than No. 2 QB Matt Leinart in the loss.

Leinart was 3 of 14 for 11 yards and threw an interception. The Raiders defense surrendered 334 yards of offense.

The Raiders got a good effort from star punter Shane Lechler -- eight punts for a 43.3-yard average -- and backup kicker Eddy Carmona, whose 31-yard field goal prevented a second shutout performance from the offense this preseason.

The Raiders finished 1-3 in the preseason and gained five first downs to the Seahawks' 24 in the game. Before their regular-season opener on Sept. 10, final cuts could come as soon as Friday.
