O’Neil: Seahawks’ 2017 schedule by the numbers

A by-the-numbers look at Seattle’s 2017 schedule:

23 – Prime-time games the Seahawks have played under Pete Carroll, not including the four that are scheduled this season.

19 – Prime-time games the Seahawks have won under Carroll.

11 – Consecutive Monday night games Seattle has won, including all seven under Carroll.

8 – Consecutive home-openers the Seahawks have won. Seattle has not lost its first home game in any season since 2008 when the 49ers beat the Seahawks 33-30 in Week 2.

6 – Times in the past eight years that Seattle has won its home-opener by 20 or more points.

5 – Opponents on Seattle’s schedule that made the playoffs last season.

3 – Successive seasons the Seahawks will play in Green Bay. The Seahawks lost 27-17 in Week 2 in 2015 and were beaten 38-10 in Week 14 last season. Those are the only two double-digit defeats Seattle has suffered in any of the past five regular seasons.

2 – Consecutive road games in Seattle’s schedule as the Seahawks play at the Los Angeles Rams in Game 5 and at the New York Giants in their next game. However, there is a bye in between, meaning the Seahawks won’t play road games in consecutive weeks, something that has not happened in any Seahawks season going back to 1990.

1 – Game Seattle will play that starts at 10 a.m. Pacific. That’s a huge break since Seattle could have had as many as five games with 10 a.m. starts based on the sites.

0 – Regular-season games against Carolina, which is a huge switch as Seattle had played the Panthers in the regular season each of the past five years not to mention twice in the playoffs.
