SeahawksSEATTLE — Second-year quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Colin Kapernick will have more on the line in Sunday’s heated NFC West showdown than a winning record, their pride and a chance to take an early divisional lead.

They each also stand to lose an eyebrow.

Wilson and Kaepernick, two star quarterbacks who are cordial acquaintances if not friends, set up a bet that the losing quarterback of the game has to shave one eyebrow. The bet was part of a promotional video for EA Sports’ ‘Madden 25’ video game.

It’s impossible to say for sure if either quarterback will go through with the bet after a crushing divisional loss. But these young guns tend to stick by their… guns. Only time will tell.

Kickoff is at 5 p.m. Sunday.
