2012 Seahawks Schedule – Some Quick Thoughts

by Joe on April 17, 2012

The Seahawks schedule is out for the 2012 season. Overall the Seahawks have a pretty tough looking schedule both in terms of the teams they are playing and the travel.

Seattle regularly travels more than any other team in the NFL and this year will be no different. Road trips to Miami, Carolina, Buffalo (played in Toronto), and Detroit will all be some long flights. Luckily they have the Jets, Patriots, Cowboys, Packers, and Vikings at home.

2012 Seahawks Schedule

Here are a few more thoughts about the 2012 Seahawks Schedule:

1. Three sets of back to back road games – At the Rams on Sept 30th and then at Carolina Oct 7th, at San Fran Oct 18th and then at Detroit on Oct 28th, and at Miami Nov 25th and at Chicago Dec 2nd. At least the San Francisco game is on a Thursday giving them some more rest between trips and it is good they have the bye week before the trip to Miami.

2. I think the toughest three game stretch is Oct 14-28th with the Patriots coming to Seattle and then at San Francisco and Detroit. Those will all be tough games.

3. Three of the last four games are at home and all four of those games should be Seahawks victories.

4. Without putting too much thought into it:

  • @Cardinals Sept 9th – Win
  • Cowboys Sept 16th – Win
  • Packers Sept 24th – Loss
  • @Rams Sept 30th – Win
  • @Panthers Oct 7th – Win
  • Patriots Oct 14th – Loss
  • @49ers Oct 18th – Loss
  • @Lions Oct 28th – Loss
  • Vikings Nov 4th – Win
  • Jets Nov 11th – Win
  • @Dolphins Nov 25th – Win
  • @Bears Dec 2nd – Loss
  • Cardinals Dec 9th – Win
  • @Bills Dec 16th – Win
  • 49ers Dec 23rd – Win
  • Rams – Dec 30th – Win

Is that 11 wins?

5. Two primetime games: Monday night against the Packers and Thursday night against San Francisco. Maybe one of the later games gets flexed in as well.

All in all it looks like an awesome schedule. We have some big name opponents coming into Seattle and overall I think we play more tough teams at home than on the road. Only a few more months to go!!!
