Seahawks won’t go through the air as much in 2021

Due to the geography of the United States and the 30 cities that have NFL teams, Seattle is the most isolated of all of the NFL hometowns. Usually, the Seattle Seahawks lead the NFL in miles traveled in the air, as they did last year. However, the Seahawks will be second in the NFL next year in travel miles behind a division rival.

According to Brian Burke of ESPN, The 49ers will travel nearly 30,000 miles next year, with the Seahawks right behind. The other two teams in the NFC West are also in the top 8, along with two teams from Florida, and two teams from the AFC West.

The longest trips for the Seahawks next season will be to Houston, Minnesota, Green Bay, and two cross country road trips to Pittsburgh and to Landover/Washington (D.C.) metro. None of these games will see the Seahawks stay in the midwest or east coast between games as they are all sandwiched in between home games or trips to NFC West opponents. So, as per usual the Seahawks will unavoidably face a lot of air travel next year.
