The NFL released regular season schedules on Tuesday, and Seattle’s includes a pair of nationally televised games at Qwest Field.

Philadelphia comes to Seattle on Dec. 1 for a Thursday night game that will be televised on the NFL Network. The following week, the Seahawks will play their first Monday night game since 2007 when they host St. Louis.

A few more notes:

–The Seahawks went 5-5 in 2010 against their 2011 opponents, including their season-ending loss to the Bears in the NFC playoffs. The Seahawks play the Bears at Soldier Field in Week 15.

–Five of Seattle’s eight road games will begin at 10 a.m., a start time that has been historically problematic for the Seahawks. Seattle went 1-1 in two 10 a.m. games last season.

–Five opponents made the playoffs in 2010.
