Seahawks get two primetime games in 2012
By Brady Henderson
The Seahawks’ 2012 schedule includes two primetime games and another in Canada.
The NFL released schedules for all 32 teams on Tuesday. Opponents had previously been set.
The Seahawks will open the season the same way they closed out last season — with a road game against the Cardinals. They’ll play on “Monday Night Football” two weeks later when they host the Packers, the team Matt Flynn spent four seasons with before he signed with Seattle.
The Seahawks’ second primetime appearance will be a Thursday Night game against the 49ers in San Francisco in Week 7. Seattle’s bye comes in Week 11. Four weeks later, they’ll take on the Buffalo Bills at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. That will be the Seahawks’ first regular-season game outside the United States.
Here is the schedule, with the four preseason games listed first and home games in bold:
Saturday, Aug. 11: Tennessee Titans, 7 p.m.
