Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady could become the first quarterback to start a game in three foreign countries. He won two games with the New England Patriots in London and another in Mexico City.
The schedule for the three NFL games in London next season was also announced, with the Green Bay Packers becoming the final team to play in Europe.
The Packers will take on the New York Giants on Oct. 9 at the home of Premier League soccer team Tottenham, a week after the Minnesota Vikings play the New Orleans Saints at the same stadium.
On Oct. 30, Wembley Stadium will host the Denver Broncos against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who played games there for seven straight seasons until 2019 before playing at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year.
The final international game will be between the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 21 in Mexico City.
The full 2022 regular season schedule for the Seahawks and the rest of the NFL will be released on Thursday, May 12.
