The NFL's regular season for 2018 is almost over, and then we see the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs. I suppose it's never too early to look ahead and take a look at the 2019 schedule.
Yes, the NFL has a fixed rotation, which means that 14 out of 16 games are known in advance. The other two matches are determined by the final score. We know that the Seahawks will finish second in NFC West, but the results of week 16 have confirmed that the Philadelphia Eagles will finish second in the NFC East, while the Minnesota Vikings is in second place for some time stand NFC North.
Here is the list of opponents Seattle will meet in the regular 201
Los Angeles Rams
San Francisco 49ers
Saints in New Orleans
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Los Angeles Rams
Pittsburgh Steelers Browns
The Bengals are one of two teams the Seahawks have never defeated under Russell Wilson, and the only team that has not outclassed Pete Carroll in his entire term of office head coach. Ideally, this Steelers game will not end the way the two previous trips to Pittsburgh took place, and the Seahawks will be closed.
Of course, we can not ignore the Seahawks seemingly playing the Panthers for the millionth time. The 2011 and 2017 season will ultimately be the only season in the decade in which the Seahawks and Panthers have not played against each other. In fact, they played in 2014 and 2015 in the regular season and in the postseason.
The 2019 timetable is due to be released in April. Traditionally, the Super Bowl champions are the opening night hosts. If the Seahawks do not win it by themselves, their only chance of being the first first game of the season is in the Rams, Steelers or Eagles, and only the Rams will certainly win the playoffs.
