The Seahawks will have a chance to get off to a fast start before playing a host of night games at midseason and finishing with four West Coast games in the final five weeks as the NFC is decided, according to the NFL schedule released today.
The Seahawks tied 2015 with a team-record five prime-time games: at Arizona in Week 7, home vs. Buffalo in Week 9, at New England in Week 10, home vs. Carolina in Week 13 and home vs. the Rams in Week 15. They have three home night games for the first time since 2006.
They have just two 10 a.m. starts: at the Jets in Week 3 and at New Orleans in Week 8. The Seahawks are 8-8 in 10 a.m. starts since Russell Wilson became QB in 2012.
The Seahawks also have just two possible cold-weather games: at New England on Nov. 13 and at Green Bay on Dec. 11.
