The 2022 Seattle Seahawks schedule is officially out, and what a season opener we have in store! Week 1 is a home game against none other than Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. It’s going to be a playoff-like atmosphere and an emotional scene with Russ set for his Seattle return... but on the opposition’s side of the field.
The first road game will be against the San Francisco 49ers (1:05 PM PT, FOX). We’ve enjoyed a lot of wins over the 49ers with Wilson at quarterback, but under Pete Carroll the team went 1-3 with non-Wilson QBs at the helm. It’s a key early season divisional matchup against last year’s NFC Championship finalists.
Seattle’s season finale will come against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, and for no reason whatsoever I’m just going to bring up that all of the Seahawks’ division titles under Pete Carroll have been clinched in December or January home games against the Rams. As was reported earlier, one of their road games is a trip to Munich, Germany to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their bye week is immediately after that game, after which they face on Thanksgiving weekend.
As expected, Seattle’s primetime game allotment took a big hit sans Wilson. Just one MNF game and then the late season TNF game against the 49ers, and no Sunday Night Football appearances initially scheduled for the first time since 2012 — they were flexed into SNF that season but the original release had the Seahawks without an SNF appearance.
