2016 Seahawks Preseason Schedule Announced

A look at the Seahawks 2016 preseason schedule, which opens at Kansas City and also includes games against Minnesota, Dallas and Oakland.

With the 2016 preseason schedule announced, take a look back at some of the best shots the Seahawks have had against our four preseason opponents.

The NFL announced its 2016 preseason schedule Thursday, with the Seattle Seahawks opening their preseason at Kansas City. The Seahawks will host Minnesota in Week 2 of the preseason, a team they played twice last year, once in the regular season and once in the wild-card round of the playoffs with Seattle winning both games. Seattle will host Dallas in Week 3 of the preseason, then close things out at Oakland, marking the 11th straight year Seattle and Oakland have faced each other in Week 4 of the preseason.

All four games will be televised locally on Q13 FOX.

Since moving from the AFC to the NFC in 2002, the Seahawks have usually played an AFC-West heavy preseason schedule, and in fact played all four teams from that division last year. This marks the first time since 2010 that the Seahawks won't face at least three AFC west teams in the preseason.

In six seasons under Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have a 15-9 preseason record, including 4-0 preseasons in 2012 and 2013. Seattle has gone 2-2 in each of the past two preseasons.
