Seahawks Reveal Starting Quarterback Plans for Final Preseason Game
By Tyler Maher
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has announced who the starting quarterback will be for the team's final preseason game on Friday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
According to Carroll, Geno Smith will start the game for Seattle before giving way to Drew Lock, who is expected to take the majority of snaps under center after missing last week's preseason game with COVID.
The split is not surprising, as the Seahawks are still trying to determine who their starting quarterback will be this year following the offseason trade of Russell Wilson. Smith briefly served as Seattle's starting QB last season when Wilson was on the IR and performed well in his absence, but Carroll is still weighing his options.
With the starting job still up in the air, it could go to whoever has the stronger performance this week.
Having so much on the line for their offense, the Seahawks are 7-point favorites against the Cowboys according to NFL odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.
