Now that Russell Wilson has signed a contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks, we can focus our attention on other things like the NFL regular season schedule, which is set to be released on Wednesday, April 17th at 8 PM ET.

Sensible people like us know that in this era of social media and insider sources who can spit things out like rapid fire, we are going to have many pieces of the puzzle filled out before the “official” release on ESPN and NFL Network, who will then take up an absurd amount of time analyzing matchups that are so far in advance that the NFL Draft hasn’t even happened yet. If that sounds familiar, it’s because I used a variation of this line last year and it still rings true in 2019.

Anyway, this post contains everything from rumored dates and times across the league, any pertinent Seahawks news, strength-of-schedule, and more. When the Seahawks schedule is out, that will come in a separate article. And please do not source anything from this Twitter account, which was in a trolling mood.

Seahawks strength-of-schedule ranking

Based on the 2018 win-loss record of their 2019 opponents, the Seahawks have the seventh-easiest schedule. Seattle had the seventh-easiest SOS in 2017... that didn’t work out so well. As always, beware that some great teams are destined to fall off for whatever reason, while some lousy teams will emerge and have respectable to terrific seasons.

What we know about the Seahawks schedule

  • Almost guaranteed to open the season at home. The Mariners and Sounders are not playing in Seattle on the first Sunday of the regular season, so that theoretically paves the way for the Seahawks’ first Week 1 home opener since 2016.
  • They’re not going to London or Mexico City this year. All of the London and Mexico City games are finalized, and the Seahawks aren’t involved.
  • A maximum of five games will be 10 AM kickoffs. All of the Seahawks’ non-divisional opponents are in the central or eastern time zones, so they’re all eligible to be 10 AM games. Hopefully the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles are high-profile matchups (on paper!) that warrant a primetime or late-afternoon appearance.
