So much for four straight prime-time games: On Tuesday, the NFL announced changes to the schedule, including moving the Seahawks’ trip to Philadelphia from Sunday Night Football to a 10 AM PST kickoff. Seattle’s trip to take on the Eagles was replaced by the Packers’ trip to San Francisco to take on the 8-1 49ers.
While obviously Sunday Night Football would have been preferred, the new slot allows the Seahawks to try and continue two streaks. The first is Seattle’s 5-0 record on the road in 2019. The second is one that would have seemed inconceivable just a few seasons ago:
Seahawks are now on a six game winning streak in 10 AM PST kickoffs, having last lost in this time slot in New Orleans on 10/30/2016. The terror that accompanied these starts on the schedule seem like a lifetime ago— Alistair Corp (@byAlistairCorp) October 27, 2019
The most important thing, of course, will be to take down a 5-4 Philadelphia team that fancies itself as a playoff contender in the NFC.
