Renton, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks 2018 schedule was announced today by the National Football League. The Seahawks schedule features five prime time games, making it the sixth-consecutive season with four or more. Four prime time games will be played at CenturyLink Field, with two Sunday night games, one Thursday night game, and one Monday night game. The Seahawks will also play a Monday night game at Chicago. Seattle has three or more prime time home games for the third-consecutive season, and for the fourth time since the 2006 season.
Aiming to return to the postseason after missing the playoffs in 2017 following five-consecutive playoff berths from 2012-16, the Seahawks will play five games against 2017 playoff teams in 2018, facing the L.A. Rams, Minnesota Vikings, and Kansas City Chiefs at CenturyLink Field, and the L.A. Rams and Carolina Panthers on the road.
The Seahawks will kick off the 2018 season with back-to-back road games, first at Denver (9/9) and then at Chicago (9/17) on Monday Night Football. Seattle returns home to host Dallas (9/23) in their home opener before going back on the road to play at Arizona (10/30).
A home game against the L.A. Rams (10/7) leads into Seattle traveling to London as the road team to face Oakland (10/14), before returning for a Week 7 bye.
The team will travel to Detroit (10/28) then return home to play the L.A. Chargers (11/4) before heading to L.A. to face the Rams (11/11). Seattle makes its second appearance in prime time in Week 11, hosting Green Bay (11/15) on Thursday night.
Following a road game at Carolina (11/25), Seattle has back-to-back home prime time games, hosting San Francisco (12/2) on Sunday Night Football and then Minnesota (12/10) on Monday Night Football.
Since Pete Carroll took over in 2010, the Seahawks are 22-4-1 in prime time games and their .833 winning percentage is tops in the NFL during that span.
Seattle's only road game in December comes at San Francisco (12/16) before two home games vs. Kansas City (12/23) on Sunday Night Football and closing the season with Arizona (12/30).
