Happy Seattle Seahawks schedule release day, everyone!
It’s been four months since we last saw our Seahawks in action, but we’re not just four months away from seeing them return to the field in their quest for a second Super Bowl title in franchise history. This season’s opponents list includes the entire NFC East and the AFC North, two of the stronger looking divisions in the NFL. We’ll also see Seattle and the Detroit Lions clash again in a rematch of their 2022 classic.
The full 2023 NFL regular season schedule is set to be released on Thursday, May 11 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. ESPN2 and NFL Network will have a schedule special but honestly you need to reassess some things if you’re going to watch a two- or three-hour broadcast speculating about games that are still months away from happening.
This post contains everything from rumored dates and times across the league, any pertinent Seahawks news, and more. When the whole Seahawks schedule is out, that will come in a separate article. We don’t know if the preseason schedule will come out at the same time, but if that does then we’ll update accordingly.

Strength of schedule
Seattle’s strength of schedule, based on their 2023 opponents’ combined records from the 2022 season, ranks 11th. Somehow, someway, this is the third straight year they have been exactly 11th. This is a functionally useless metric and it shouldn’t have been more apparent when you look at what happened to Seattle’s opponents in 2022. But this is still nevertheless info you might be interested in!
