Seahawks 30, Raiders 24: Postgame reaction thread

What’s this? A winning streak?

The Seattle Seahawks took care of business Sunday against the winless Oakland Raiders, cruising to a big lead early and then holding on for a 30-24 victory at CenturyLink Field.

It wasn’t always pretty, especially on offense, but Seattle was without six starters and three key reserves.

The win pushes the Seahawks record to 5-3 at the halfway point in the season.

Seattle will host the New York Giants next week before heading to Kansas City for another 10 a.m. start.

The Seahawks still have five division games left, including two each against the 49ers (4-4) and Cardinals (7-1).

Let’s get to your thoughts:

1. Who gets the game ball? Who was the goat?

2. What do you blame most for the offensive struggles: injuries, play calling or execution?

3. All things considered (opponent, location, injuries) how do you grade Seattle’s performance?

4. Are you happy with 5-3? How would you rate the team's first half of the season?

5. What do you expect moving forward? Against the Giants? Down the stretch?
