Seahawks running back Christine Michael runs the ball against the Oakland Raiders in a preseason game, Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015, in Seattle. He was cut by the team three days later but was re-signed this week.

The Seahawks continue their quest for a wildcard playoff spot this Sunday, hosting the Cleveland Browns at CenturyLink Field.

KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel says fans will see two new running backs, and an interesting quarterback matchup.
