After an extended absence, the Seattle Seahawks are back in prime-time and even have a Monday Night Football matchup schedule. The 2011 NFL schedule was released on Tuesday afternoon, allowing us to pick apart matchups and take a look at when, exactly the Seahawks will be play. And in one two-week stretch in December, the Seahawks will have back-to-back prime-time games, hosting the Philadelphia Eagles on Thurs. Dec 1 and following it up with a Monday Night Football matchup on Dec. 12 at Qwest Field.
The Seahawks follow their prime-time excursion with a rematch against the Chicago Bears in week 15. The Bears knocked out the Seahawks in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs this past season. The season ends with a week 17 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals in Tempe, which holds a bit less intrigue than the week 17 matchup with the St. Louis Rams.
