For the third time in six games, the Seahawks will play in prime time on Sunday Night Football.
The NFL announced Thursday that Seattle's Week 7 game at Arizona has been moved from the 1:05 p.m. time slot to 5:20 p.m., and will be televised on NBC.
Tampa Bay at Las Vegas was originally scheduled as the Sunday night game, but has been moved to the afternoon slot, "out of an abundance of caution to ensure that a game would be available for fans on Sunday Night Football." The league says it still expects the Buccaneers-Raiders game to be played Sunday, but the Raiders have recently placed offensive lineman Trent Brown and defensive back Damon Arnette on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Wednesday his entire starting offensive line was sent home this week having been exposed to Brown.
The Seahawks will now have gone six games while only playing once in the afternoon (1:05/1:25 p.m.) time slot that is usually their most common kickoff time. The Seahawks hosted Dallas in that time slot in Week 3, but their other two home games were on Sunday night, and their two road games have both kicked of at 10 a.m. PT.
