Wilson to start opener

Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson will start Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders, as well as the regular-season opener against the Cardinals in Arizona on Sept. 9, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said tonight.

Carroll stressed that Wilson, the team’s third-round draft choice, won the starter job, rather than free-agent acquisition Matt Flynn losing it.

Wilson led six consecutive scoring drives against the Chiefs on Friday night in his first NFL start.
