Seahawks schedule: 3 teams Seattle could likely face in Prime Time
I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing like watching the Seattle Seahawks in prime time. Whether it’s Thursday, Sunday, or Monday night, a night game involving the Seahawks feels different, and almost always delivers a great game.
Not only does it deliver a great game, but Pete Carroll’s teams deliver under the lights. Since taking over as head coach in 2010, the Seahawks are 33-10-1 in prime-time games.
On Thursday night, the NFL will be releasing the full schedule for all thirty-two teams, including our Hawks. While this team may not have the same star power or championship aspirations as in years past, I still believe the Seahawks carry enough intrigue and stories, leading them to play in multiple prime-time games. We don’t know the schedule yet, but we do know our opponents.
A prediction on the three most likely prime-time games for the Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks are in arguably one of the toughest and most fascinating divisions in the NFL. You have the defending super bowl champion LA Rams that look primed to make one more run at the title. The San Francisco 49ers blew the NFC championship, but come back hungry and dominant in the trenches. They’d likely be the super bowl favorites if not for their mess of a QB situation.
The final team in Seattle’s division is the Arizona Cardinals. The hot-start to cold-finish squad appeared to be heading into a make-or-break season before contract extensions were handed out to GM Steve Keim and Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury, but not to their star QB Kyler Murray.
Their confusing offseason and legitimate awkwardness with their apparent franchise signal-caller likely played a role in the Cardinals trading a 1st round pick to acquire Murray’s college teammate and friend Hollywood Brown. The roller coaster continued as we found out shortly after the draft All-Pro wideout DeAndre Hopkins will miss the first six games of the season for a violation of the PED policy.
With that in mind, I’m predicting that the Arizona Cardinals will host the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football in Week 7. Seattle will get the short end of the stick, seeing a fresh Hopkins eager to get back on the field, and a likely hot Arizona team that is trying to fight their perception of being front-runners.
This will also be our first chance to see the new Amazon Thursday Night Football setup and crew. I don’t have many concerns about Amazon stepping into football, and I’m absolutely stoked to see the all-time legend Al Michaels and the college football legend Kirk Herbstreit combine for a fantastic broadcasting duo.
