 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Matt Hasselbeck and the Seattle Seahawks had no problem with Minnesota's upgraded defense.
Hasselbeck was 7-of-8 for 70 yards and a touchdown and the Seahawks racked up 187 total yards in three series against the Vikings' defensive starters in a 34-17 preseason victory on Friday night.
Maurice Morris got the start at running back ahead of Julius Jones and rushed for 62 yards on six carries in the first three drives against what was the league's top-ranked run defense last season.
With Adrian Peterson being used only as a decoy, the Vikings called passes on the first 11 plays Tarvaris Jackson was under center. He threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to new fullback Thomas Tapeh and hooked up with new receiver Bernard Berrian twice for 43 yards.
Raiders 18, 49ers 6
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Michael Bush made the most of his first game of any kind in nearly two years, scoring on a 5-yard touchdown run in his first game since breaking his leg in college more than 23 months ago.
While Bush was the offensive star for the Raiders, the 49ers didn't get much from any of their three quarterbacks competing for the starting job in the exhibition opener.
J.T. O'Sullivan, who got the start, turned the ball over twice in four drives. Alex Smith, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft, led the Niners to a field goal late in then first half but was unable to generate a first down on his other two drives. Shaun Hill threw an interception on his first drive.
Steelers 16, Eagles 10
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh backup QB Charlie Batch left the game midway through the second quarter with a broken right collarbone in the Steelers' 16-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in the first preseason game for both teams Friday night.
Ben Roethlisberger completed both passes he threw, a pair of 19-yarders, the second to Santonio Holmes for the game's first score to cap a brisk, eight-play, 80-yard drive.
Donovan McNabb and the Eagles also looked crisp, and McNabb played far more than Roethlisberger. The Eagles scored a touchdown and a field goal on their first two drives, during which McNabb completed 10 of 13 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown, but were shut out the rest of the night.
The Steelers' two biggest questions coming into the game were answered. With Alan Faneca gone, offensive line protected Roethlisberger and opened large holes for Mendenhall and Willie Parker, who was coming off a broken leg that ended his 2007 season
Parker did not appear to be slowed as he ran three times for 20 yards on the opening drive before he was pulled.
