2021 Seattle Seahawks Schedule Revealed, 5 Prime Time Games
The 2021 NFL schedule was released for all 32 teams including the Seattle Seahawks who will be featured in 5 nationally televised games in prime time this upcoming season.
Seattle opens the 2021 season on the road at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis against the Colts lead by their new quarterback and former Philadelphia Eagles signal-caller Carson Wentz.
The following Sunday, the Birds of Elliott Bay open their home schedule at Lumen Field when they host the Tennessee Titans.
Seattle begins the first of three consecutive prime time games in week 5 when they play host to NFC West division rival Los Angeles Rams for a bit of a homecoming for Yakima native Cooper Kupp.
Week 6 sends the Hawks to the Steel City for a Sunday Night Football match-up against Pittsburgh. The trifecta continues in week 7 when the New Orleans Saints visit Lumen Field for a Monday Night Football tilt.
Seattle gets a well-time "bye" week at the virtual midway point of the expanded 17-game season in week #9.
The next two prime time games occur beginning in week #12 when Seattle plays on Monday night again -- this time visiting the Washington Football Team in out nation's capitol.
The following week, week #13, Seattle will take on another NFC West foe when the San Francisco 49ers head north to the Emerald City for another Sunday Night Football contest.
At first blush, knowing what we know up to now, we have the Seahawks going 10-7 which SHOULD be enough to get them back into the playoffs for the 10th time in the last 11 seasons.
