Seahawks schedule announced

The Seahawks will open their 2014 season in primetime against the Green Bay Packers, play the rival San Francisco 49ers twice in a three-week span in November, and will host a Super Bowl rematch in Week 3.

The NFL announced its regular season schedule Wednesday, and as the defending Super Bowl champions, the Seahawks kick off the season on Thursday, Sept. 4 against the Packers.

The Seahawks play in primetime four times: the opener, on Monday night at Washington on Oct. 6, at San Francisco on Thanksgiving, and on Sunday Dec. 21 at Arizona. Though with flex scheduling, it is possible Seattle could be moved to Sunday night for another game, or moved out of that Dec. 21 game if NBC decides it wants a different matchup.

The Seahawks will play just three 10 a.m. PT games, though those early games have proven to be less of an issue in recent years. Following an early bye in Week 4, the Seahawks will play three of four on the road in October, traveling to Washington, St. Louis and Carolina.

The Seahawks will end the season with a tough stretch of games playing at Kansas City in week 11, home against Arizona the following week, then at San Francisco, at Philadelphia home against San Francisco and at Carolina before closing with St. Louis.

And no, it’s not your imagination, the Seahawks have been ending their season with the Rams a lot lately. This will be the fourth Week 17 meeting between the Seahawks and Rams in Seattle in the past five years.

Here’s the full schedule:

Sept. 4 (Thursday) 5:30 p.m. vs. Green Bay

Sept. 14 1:05 p.m. at San Diego

Sept 21. 1:25 p.m. vs. Denver
