It’s that wonderful time of the year! Tonight at 8 PM ET on NFL Network and ESPN, we’ll have the full release of the 2017 NFL Regular Season schedule. How many primetime games will the Seattle Seahawks get? What about 10 AM PT road trips out east? Will the NFL once again stick Titans-Jaguars on Thursday Night Football? So many questions, and we’ll soon know the answers to all of them in just hours.

This post contains everything from rumored dates and times across the league, any pertinent Seahawks news, strength-of-schedule, and more. A separate post will be made once the Seahawks schedule is out.

Seahawks strength-of-schedule ranking

The Seahawks are near the bottom of the NFL in terms of opposition winning percentage from the 2016 season. They’re tied with Minnesota at 25th (at .455), although we know that some great teams are destined to fall off (see: last year’s Panthers), while some awful teams (Jaguars?) may be better than they were last season.

What we know about the Seahawks schedule

  • Almost guaranteed to open the season on the road. The Mariners and Sounders are home on September 10th, so unless the Seahawks play a Monday night game, it’ll be a road trip to start the year.
  • Almost guaranteed to play week 2 at home. Due to a Mariners home game in week 3, week 2 is free for the Seahawks to play at CenturyLink Field. NFL teams can’t have three straight road games to start the season.
  • All of their non-NFC West road games could be 10 AM PT kickoffs. This is unlikely considering at least one of these games is good enough for primetime, but all of Seattle’s non-divisional road opponents are in the Central or Eastern time zones, so theoretically we could see five 10 AM start times.
