Seahawks schedule announced

The Seahawks' schedule includes two prime-time appearances, a game against Buffalo that will be played in Toronto, and a two-game homestand against division opponents San Francisco and St. Louis to conclude the regular season.

Week 1car-mark-1-cl.gifat Arizona CardinalsSunday, Sept. 91:15 p.m.
Storyline: Seattle has not won its first road game of the year since 2006 when it beat Detroit 9-6 in the regular-season opener. Seattle is 1-5 at Arizona since the Cardinals moved into their new stadium in Glendale, Ariz., in 2006.
Week 2cow-mark-1-cl.gifvs. Dallas CowboysSunday, Sept. 161 p.m.
Storyline: Seattle has lost three games to Dallas over the past four seasons by a combined score of 8595-39. However, all three games were played in Dallas. This is the first time since 2005 that Dallas will play in Seattle. Seattle is 2-8 vs. the NFC East over the previous four seasons.
Week 3pac-mark-1b-cl.gifvs. Green Bay PackersMonday, Sept. 245:30 p.m.
Storyline: Seattle's new quarterback is Green Bay's old backup, but that's not the only reason Matt Flynn will be centerstage in this game. The Packers led the league in scoring at 35 points last year. The Seahawks ranked No. 28 in overall offense, and they are going to be hard pressed to keep pace.
Week 4ram-mark-1-cl.gifat St. Louis RamsSunday, Sept. 3010 a.m.
Storyline: Seattle has won 13 of its past 14 regular-season games against the Rams, and defeated St. Louis by a combined total of 54-20 in two meetings last year.
Week 5pan-mark-1-cl.gifat Carolina PanthersSunday, Oct. 71 p.m.
Storyline: Seattle is 0-2 at Carolina, which is one of only two NFL cities where the Seahawks have never won. Baltimore is the other. The Seahawks never played the Colts in Baltimore and are 0-2 on the road vs. the Ravens.
Week 6pat-mark-1-cl.gifvs. New England PatriotsSunday, Oct. 141 p.m.
Storyline: Pete Carroll spent three seasons as Patriots coach before he was fired after the 1999 season. He remade himself as a football in nine seasons at USC and now faces his former franchise for the first time.

Storyline: Seattle has lost three consecutive road games at San Francisco, none of those games decided by fewer than 13 points.

Storyline: Seattle is 7-4 against Detroit since entering the league.
Week 9vik-mark-1-cl.gifvs. Minnesota VikingsSunday, Nov. 41 p.m.

Week 12dol-mark-1-cl.gifat Miami DolphinsSunday, Nov. 2510 a.m.
Storyline: Seattle is 1-5 at Miami during the regular season, the Seahawks only regular-season road victory coming in 1990.
Week 13bea-mark-1-cl.gifat Chicago BearsSunday, Dec. 210 a.m.
Storyline: This is the sixth time in seven seasons the Seahawks and Bears will play in the regular season. They've also met twice in the playoffs in that time. This is the third year in a row the Seahawks play at Chicago, Seattle winning there each of the previous two regular-season meetings.
Week 14car-mark-1-cl.gifvs. Arizona CardinalsSunday, Dec. 91:15 p.m.

Storyline: Buffalo has won the last two meetings between these teams by a combined score of 72-19, but this one is exported to Canada making a unique setting.
Week 16for-mark-1-cl.gifvs. San Francisco 49ersSunday, Dec. 231:15 p.m.
Storyline: The 49ers' 19-17 victory at Seattle on Christmas Eve was a physical, tightly played contest between two teams, and the fact that one of San Francisco's coaches shouted, "Merry Christmas" as he walked through the press box to the elevator won't do anything to lessen the emotional intensity this time around.
Week 17ram-mark-1-cl.gifvs. St. Louis RamsSunday, Dec. 301:15 p.m.
Storyline: Seattle has won seven in a row at home vs. the Rams, and six of those seven consecutive home victories against St. Louis were by 10 points or more. The Rams have not won in Seattle since a 33-27 overtime victory in October 2004.
