The 6-4 Seahawks return to Lumen Field Week 12 refreshed from the bye, as they welcome the 3-7 Las Vegas Raiders. Here are five things to know about this week's AFC West opponent:

Derek Carr: Downfield Passing Threat

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr looks to record his fourth-consecutive game of 200-plus passing yards against Seattle. Through 10 games, Carr has completed 217-348 passes for 2,435 yards and 15 touchdowns. Carr's five interceptions thrown are tied for No.10 best league-wide as he enters Week 12 completing 62 percent of his passes.

Carr's been one of the league's best deep passers over the last three seasons, ranking second in touchdown passes of 25-plus yards (23). Seattle will do it's best to keep Carr's former Fresno State Bulldogs teammate Davante Adams - or any other Raiders target from beating them deep.

Davante Adams: WR1

Raiders wideout Davante Adams is putting up some historic numbers in his first season playing with his friend and former college teammate, Carr, after moving to Las Vegas. Adams has caught 64 passes from his former Fresno State teammate, notching 925 yards (No.4) and 10 touchdowns (No.2).

Adams has been on an absolute tear over the last three weeks, recording five touchdowns and three-consecutive 100-yard games. This week, Adams takes on Seahawks rookie Tariq Woolen, who more than held his own against several veterans so far in his rookie campaign.

Josh Jacobs: Third Time's a Charm

Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is knocking on the door of 1,000 rushing yards, needing 70 Sunday to reach the mark for the third time in his career. The Alabama alum is averaging a career-high 5.1 yards per carry on 183 attempts, rushing for 7 touchdowns (T-5th).

In the Raiders Week 11 22-16 overtime victory over the Denver Broncos, Jacobs eclipsed the former team record of 928 rushing yards through 10 games (Marcus Allen-1985). Seattle's defense currently ranks No. 28 in rushing yards allowed per game (140.9). Slowing down Jacobs' and the Raiders high-powered rushing attack is a key priority for Sunday's matchup.

Mad Maxx: Chasing Sacks

Raiders fourth-year defensive end Maxx Crosby is one of the league's fastest-rising stars. Over his first 59 games, Crosby has recorded 34 career sacks. Nine of those sacks have come this season through 10 games (T-5th), along with 63 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Last week's win over the Broncos marked the third multi-sack game of the year for Crosby, tying for second-most league-wide.

The Eastern Michigan alum is the only Raider to record more than one sack this season.  

AJ Cole: Special Teams Threat

Raiders punter AJ Cole is off to another electric start, after earning All-Pro honors in 2021. Through 10 games, Cole is averaging 50 yards per punt for the second-consecutive year, with 16 punts downed within the 20-yard-line.
