The Seattle Seahawks, like every NFL team, will play just three preseason games in 2021. As part of the NFL expanding the regular season to 17 games, the preseason was shrunk by one fewer game. This is a good thing as four preseason games was basically a waste of time anyway.
But assuming, dear 12, that you want to watch any possible game that the Seahawks are involved in, no matter if it really counts or not, then this article will let you know when, where and how you can watch Seattle win.
I will say, though, that the preseason games will likely showcase a lot of players trying to make the roster and not a lot of assumed starters. As we all know, the starters don’t play a lot of preseason plays anyway and that was with four games. Having just three games means less Russell Wilson and more Geno Smith.
How to watch and when the Seahawks play their 2021 preseason games
Saturday, August 14th at 6 pm PT at the Las Vegas Raiders on Q13 FOX in Seattle
Well, doesn’t a trip to Las Vegas in August sound, well…hot. At least the stadium is indoors. The first Seattle preseason game will probably feature a series or two from Wilson and company but don’t expect too much else. No injuries in the preseason is better than rusty play at the beginning of the season.
Saturday, August 21st at 7 pm PT versus the Denver Broncos at Lumen Field on Q13 FOX
The first of the Seahawks two preseason home games should see more first-team players for a longer period of time. It wouldn’t be surprising, though, to see Seattle keep players like Jamal Adams out completely. Again, the most important thing about the preseason, besides finding those players that will complete the back end of the roster, is not getting anyone hurt.
Saturday, August 28th at 7 pm PT versus the LA Chargers at Lumen Field on Q13 FOX
This game could be the most interesting of all the preseason games because players will be battling for a roster spot. It doesn’t matter if the Seahawks are playing the 2021 Chargers or the 1985 Bears, players will be trying their hardest to state their case towards making the team. Who is the fourth receiver on this team? Who fills out the cornerback room? The answers will be found in this game.
