With the win, the Seahawks finished the exhibition season 4-0 for the first time in franchise history.
So does an undefeated preseason mean anything? Seahawks head coach Jim Mora thinks so.
"It's always good to win," Mora said. "If you're a competitor, regardless of what you're doing, you're trying to win. So, I'll take the wins. Now, we're back at 0-0. If you have a competitive fiber in your body, you go out on the football field, or any endeavor, you're not playing to lose, I can tell you that."
Of course, Mora was noncommittal on what players performed well in the position battles on the defensive line, at receiver, tight end, kicker and other positions.

Mora said the coaching staff will go back and watch film, analyze how all the players have done throughout the preseason games, OTAs and training camp and make a final decision.
The players are off until Monday, when the regular practice week begins for St. Louis.
Mora did say the players have made the decision a tough one after the team's performance against Oakland.
"A lot of men in that room are making our job as an organization awfully tough because of the way they've performed in the preseason," Mora said. "That's a good thing, and I told those guys that."
Players injured include Jordan Kent (ankle), Courtney Taylor (eye), Courtney Greene (knee) and Andre Ramsey (leg).
Players that seemed to help themselves include Olindo Mare, who had two out of three touch backs on his kickoffs compared to Brandon Coutu landing his kickoffs on the seven and the five yard line.
Wide receiver Ben Obomanu cemented his status as the team's No. 5 receiver, finishing with two receptions for 58 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown. Obomanu also played well as the gunner on the punt team and showed good hands on punt returns.
Defensive linemen Michael Bennett and Nick Reed continued to make the coaching staff's decision on whether or not to keep them on the active roster a hard choice.
Reed finished with another sack and a forced fumble, and led the team with seven tackles. Bennett was active most of the night, finishing with a fumble recovery, three quarterback hurries and two tackles.
The other player in the competition, Baraka Atkins, finished with three tackles and a quarterback hurry.
Logan Payne also put himself in the conversation at receiver with a big day, grabbing two passes for 63 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown for a score.
Mora said he decided to start all of the offensive starters for a series because he wanted Edgerrin James to play with the first unit. James rushed two times for 11 yards and did a nice job of reading the seams in the zone blocking scheme.
And Aaron Curry played well in his first game at Qwest Field, earning his first sack at home. Curry was surprised to find himself coming clean on the first series of the game.
“I thought something was up,” Curry said about his sack Oakland quarterback JaMarcus Russell “I mean who comes free in the NFL? So I was just licking my chops, wide-eyed and just knew it was time to make a play.”
Overall, the Seahawks played well against another bad team. The AFC West should be a cakewalk for San Diego.
Now the real season begins.
