SEATTLE (AP) Tarvaris Jackson led Seattle on three first-half scoring drives, and Terrelle Pryor struggled through his worst performance of the preseason with a chance at earning Oakland's starting quarterback job in the Seahawks' 22-6 preseason victory.

Jackson led the Seahawks to a trio of field goals from Steven Hauschka, including kicks of 51 and 56 yards. Jackson got the bulk of time in the first half after Russell Wilson made a brief cameo, leading the Seahawks to their first touchdown on their opening drive.

Hauschka also hit from 22, 43 and 53 yards.

Pryor had turned the Raiders' quarterback situation into a real competition with his performance during the preseason. Matt Flynn sat out Thursday with a sore elbow, and Pryor was given an entire half to try and show he deserved the job. He was lackluster, completing 3 of 8 passes for 31 yards and an interception.
