It's time for the Seahawks vs Colts live stream, which marks the beginning of the Carson Wentz era in Indy. The 28-year-old quarterback hopes this NFL live stream will be his first step in revamping his career.

The year was 2017. Carson Wentz was taking the NFL by storm as the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles. He had led Philly to an 11-2 record in his second season in the league while throwing 33 touchdowns to just seven interceptions. His incredible year would end prematurely after tearing two ligaments in his knee against the Rams in week 13. The Eagles would rally around back up Nick Foles and go on to win the Super Bowl over the Patriots that season, while Wentz would rarely, if ever regain his 2017 form. He was even benched last season for rookie Jalen Hurts. 

Now after being traded to the Colts in March, Wentz is reunited with his former offensive coordinator in Philadelphia, Indy head coach Frank Reich. Reich is entering his fourth season with the Colts and hoping Wentz can not only provide stability at the quarterback position, but also regain his MVP caliber skillset from 2017.  

The Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, now in his 10th season, has provided the QB stability every NFL coach longs for. Wilson is Mr. Consistency in Seattle, playing in every game over the last nine years while winning at least 10 games and making the playoffs in all but one of those seasons. Still, even with a resume like that, the Seahawks strive to be better. 

The inactives are as follows:

Seahawks: L.J. Collier (DE), Stone Forsythe (T), Jake Luton (QB), Bless Austin (CB), Alex Collins (RB), Dakoda Shepley (OL)

Colts: Eric Fisher (T), Xavier Rhodes (CB), Kemoko Turay (DE), Will Fries (OL), Danny Pinter (OL), Isaac Rochell (DL), Chris Wilcox (CB)

Seattle hired Shane Waldron as their newest offensive coordinator. Waldron spent the last four seasons under Sean McVay of the Rams in a variety of roles with his offense. Aside from a new coordinator, Seattle has tried to bolster their offense by trading for veteran right guard Gabe Jackson, formerly of the Raiders and they used their second round pick on wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge out of Western Michigan.

The Seahawks are currently 3-point favorites against the Colts. The over/under is 49. The 2021 NFL season marks the league’s first 17-game regular season schedule.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.
