Seahawks to open 2018 schedule with road games against Broncos, Bears
The NFL released the regular season schedules for all 32 teams Thursday, and the Seahawks are opening the season with back-to-back road games against the Broncos and Bears. Seattle’s game in Chicago will be a Monday night contest – the first of five primetime games.
Here’s the complete schedule:

The Seahawks open the season with three of their first four contests on the road, but the close of the season will be a bit friendlier – Seattle will play at CenturyLink all but one week in December.
With so much turnover this offseason, Seattle’s schedule will also bring plenty of interesting reunions: The Seahawks will see their former defensive coordinator Kris Richard in a game against the Cowboys in Week 3 and their former offensive line coach Tom Cable in a Week 6 contest against the Raiders. Their first game back from their bye week, a road matchup against the Lions, will see them opposite ex-Seahawks tight end Luke Willson and cornerback DeShawn Shead. Tight end Jimmy Graham will make a trip back to CenturyLink with the Packers in Week 11. And of course, their first game playing against cornerback Richard Sherman will come in a Sunday Night home game on Dec. 2.
As was announced late last year, Seattle will travel to London for a game against the Raiders on Sunday, October 14.
Seattle’s preseason schedule was released last week (times and dates still to be determined):
Week 1 – Seahawks vs. Colts
Week 2 – Seahawks at Chargers
Week 3 – Seahawks at Vikings
Week 4 – Seahawks vs Raiders
