Among the positives from the Seahawks' injury-marred preseason loss to Minnesota: the play of defensive tackle Poona Ford. The 2018 undrafted free agent appeared to force a fumble when he brought down running back Alexander Mattison in the backfield for a loss (Mattison was ruled down). Ford finished with three tackles on Minnesota's first three possessions, not counting one that was negated by a penalty. Preseason performances can be misleading because of the varying levels of competition, but the Vikings started four of their five first-team offensive linemen with the exception being at right tackle. So Ford was not doing that damage against backups. He's in line to start, at least while Jarran Reed misses the first six games while serving a suspension, and is one of the Seahawks' breakout candidates.
