2011 NFL Schedules: NFC West To Play AFC North, NFC East

With the 2010 NFL regular season over, the attention turns to both the NFL playoffs and 2011 NFL schedules. While we don't know the dates and times games will take place in the 2011 season, we do know the opponents now. In 2011, the NFC West will play it's traditional six in-conference games, as well as inter-conference games against the NFC East and AFC North.

The schedule breaks down as follows:

Seattle Seahawks
Home: Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals
Away: Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, St. Louis Rams, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers

St. Louis Rams
Home: Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals
Away: Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers

San Francisco 49ers
Home: Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers
Away: Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals

Arizona Cardinals
Home: St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers
Away: St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals

Now, for the fun matchups. The Seattle Seahawks host Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta and Cincinnati in 2011. Not exactly the easiest schedule in the world. On the away side, Seattle travels Dallas, New York, Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Just looking at the schedule, it looks like a rough year for the Seahawks. The inter-divisional matchups aren't kind at all, and the travel schedule is rough, to say the least. Then again, the whole NFC West has to deal with the same issues, so it could be anyone's ballgame again in 2011.
