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.

Seahawks’ biggest question marks for 2018: Part 1 | Part 2

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
