Seattle Seahawks 2015 schedule information had been leaked before, but now fans have a full schedule to enjoy. The Seahawks open the 2015 season on the road, first with a game against the St. Louis Rams in Week 1 (Sept. 13), and then against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 (Sept. 20). The home opener for the Seahawks comes on Sept. 27, when the team will host the Chicago Bears. Those are the only three games that the team will have during the month of September, but October then holds four more games for them.
Some of the more noteworthy games for the Seattle Seahawks are on the road this season, with games against the San Francisco 49ers (Oct. 22), Dallas Cowboys (Nov. 1), and Baltimore Ravens (Dec. 13) coming away from CenturyLink Field. In its entirety, the Seahawks have one of the toughest schedules in the NFL, a task that the two-time defending NFC champions will likely embrace. There will also be a lot of attention on the Week 2 game against the Packers, as that is a re-match of the NFC Championship Game.
NFL.com gave a review of the Seahawks’ schedule, stating that the key games are in Week 2 against the Packers, in Week 8 against the Cowboys, and in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals. One prediction that got made is that the Week 17 game could actually decide which team wins the NFC West. That would make for a very competitive game to wrap up the regular season. The analysis of the schedule didn’t just end there, though, as an overall statement was made.
“The season might have ended in heartbreaking fashion, but the ‘Hawks succeeded in establishing themselves as one of the power teams of the NFL. Winning the division for a third straight season won’t be an easy task with the competition improving in the offseason. The bad news for that competition is that the Seahawks didn’t rest on their laurels this spring.”
An interesting aspect of the Seahawks’ 2015 schedule is that they will have played four of the six divisional games by Week 11. In Weeks 14 and 15, the Seahawks play the Ravens and Cleveland Browns, two AFC opponents that could be looking to the 2016 NFL Draft by that point. The team then finishes off the season with a home game against the St. Louis Rams on Dec. 27, and then a road game against the Arizona Cardinals to close it out on Jan. 3.
As previously reported on the Inquisitr, early Super Bowl odds have already been revealed by Las Vegas. The Seahawks are the favorites at 6-1 odds, followed by the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers at 7-1, and then the Indianapolis Colts at 8-1. Other teams listed include the Arizona Cardinals at 25-1, and the San Francisco 49ers at 33-1. No matter what the odds may state, the revelation of the 2015 Seattle Seahawks schedule brings hope about how close the new NFL season has become.
