The Seattle Seahawks are back in action on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Last year they wrapped up their regular season at home versus their NFC West rivals, and they’ll start 2023 the same way. In fact, we’re even getting the same announcers!

FOX has enlisted Kevin Kugler and Mark Sanchez to call this particular matchup for the third consecutive time. It’s a hell of a tale that Sanchez went from being eventually replaced by Geno Smith to calling Geno’s games as a broadcaster. Also, until Aaron Rodgers proves otherwise, Sanchez is the last New York Jets QB to win a playoff game.

As always, the incomparable 506 Sports does the coverage maps, and you can see that as expected the games are pretty much limited to Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, California, Oregon, Idaho, and most of Montana. The rest of the United States is getting the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, as the NFL insists we have to care about this rivalry.
