With the Seattle Seahawks 2021 schedule now announced, 12s now know which games are when and which games are on prime-time and which they have to work their personal schedules around. Of course, if the Seahawks are involved, 12s won’t miss any games but what about NFL fans in general?
Seattle has been an entertaining team to watch since Pete Carroll became the head coach in 2010. Russell Wilson is one of the more popular players in the NFL. Fans want to watch the Seahawks, DK Metcalf and Russell Wilson and company play.
But which games should be must-see for football fans in 2021 for Seattle? Maybe the following four.
Seahawks four must-watch games this coming season
Week 5 at 5:20 pm PT at home versus the Los Angeles Rams
This is not a make-or-break game for the Seahawks as it is too early in the season. But it might go a long way towards how much of an offensive change Seattle has actually made and how the Rams adjust to the same. Los Angeles always gives Seattle fits, but the Rams defense just has its way with the Seahawks.
Shane Waldron left the Rams to come to Seattle to be the new offensive coordinator. While the Rams know how their own offense works, Waldron should also know about the Rams defense, having gone against it in practice, so this should be an intriguing matchup.
Week 10 at 1:25 pm PT at the Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers versus Russell Wilson. That should say it all. But also, both teams are capable and might be expected to be contending for the number one seed in the NFC. This midseason matchup could be pivotal.
Week 13 at 5:20 pm PT at home versus the San Francisco 49ers
Late-season inter-division game that could decide the NFC West and possibly the entire NFC, or at least go a long way towards setting up the eventual winner? And on Sunday Night Football? And possibly by this time, Trey Lance will be the starter at quarterback for the 49ers and it’s a Lance versus Wilson matchup? Why would a person not watch?
Week 16 at 1:05 pm PT at home versus the Chicago Bears
The Bears have an excellent defense, a new quarterback (Justin Fields) who resembles Russell Wilson a little. With better quarterback play, the Bears could win the NFC North. This late-season battle should be one that determines playoff seeding in the NFC.
