The Seahawks will begin their defense of their Super Bowl championship at home against the Packers on Thursday, Sept. 4. It’s one of four prime-time games on Seattle’s 2014 regular-season schedule, which was announced Wednesday.

Another highlight is a Thanksgiving-night road game against the 49ers at brand-new Levi’s Stadium. That will be the third and final game on the NFL’s Thanksgiving slate, the NFL saving what has become the league’s best rivalry for last. Seattle will host San Francisco two weeks later.

The Seahawks will host Denver in Week 3 in a rematch of Super Bowl XLVIII, and after a Week-4 bye they will travel to Washington to play the Redskins on “Monday Night Football”. Seattle’s final prime-time game is against the Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz. in Week 16.

Seattle finishes the regular season at home against St. Louis for the third consecutive season.

Also of note: Seattle’s schedule includes three games starting at 10 a.m. PST, only one of which (Week 8 at Carolina) is on the East Coast.
