You can watch the schedule release on ESPN and NFL Network but... why? I mean seriously?

Seahawks strength-of-schedule ranking
Seattle has the joint 11th toughest strength of schedule. Last year it was tied for 13th and they ended up playing a historically bad NFC East, the New York Jets, and Atlanta Falcons, so it’s not like it played out as anything especially daunting.
