2012 Seattle Seahawks schedule game by game breakdown / predictions

Two prime time games!

On Tuesday afternoon, the 2012 NFL schedules were released. The Seahawks will have two prime time games, a Monday Night Football, and a Thursday Night Football appearance, plus they will be taking on the Buffalo Bills in Toronto for the first time in franchise history.

A few old foes make there way up to Seattle, and of course the division rivals, plus the Seahawks get to travel to the site of Super Bowl XL once again to take on the up and coming Lions.

We got the NFC North, and the AFC East to look forward to this year, so it’s not going to be an easy road to the playoffs at all.

But who wants easy?

We want a team that can battle through a tough schedule and come out on top, right?

So here is my game by game breakdown for the upcoming season.

Sun, Sept. 9 @ Arizona: To start the season off on the road is always tough, but this is probably the best opponent to do it against. Coming off a season where their big free agent QB sucked, an ensuing QB controversy might help the Seahawks chances against them. Hawks 17 – Cards 14

Sun, Sept. 16 Dallas: Home openers are always special, and to do it against America’s team is something these 12’s will be amped up to see. Tony Romo and the gang will be trying to get over the hump once again this season, so this will be a strong test early for the Seahawks. Hawks 24- Cowboys 31

Mon, Sept. 24 Green Bay: Monday Night Football! Once again a chance for the Hawks to showcase their talents to the east coast, and, a chance for new QB Matt Flynn to go up against his old team and Aaron Rodgers. Hawks 21 – Packers 45

Sun, Sept. 30 @ St. Louis: A team that struggled mightily last year, will once again be trying to prove they are on the ups in the NFC West. Not a team to be taken lightly by any means, the Seahawks will have to buckle down and win this one no matter what. Hawks 24 – Rams 10

Sun Oct. 7 @ Carolina: The first trip to the east coast for the Seahawks will bring them face to face with the Panthers. The Hawks seemed to break the curse of the 10:00 A.M. east coast starting time last year at the new Meadowlands, let’s see if that trend can continue. Hawks 14 – Panthers 12

Sun, Oct. 14 New England: The Hoodie and the Brady Bunch make a rare appearance to the Pacific Northwest this season. Always a tough game no matter where you play them, hopefully the 12th man can interrupt Belichick’s offensive schemes. Hawks 10 – Pats 21

Thur, Oct. 18 @ San Francisco: Wow! What a week this will be. Four days after playing the Pats we head into the Stick to play the 9ers.

Another tough game for the Hawks, and a must win if they want to win the division. Hawks 17 – Niners 20

Flynn's Seahawks vs. Rogers Packers

Week 3 is a chance for Matt Flynn to go up against Aaron Rodgers on Monday Night football.

Sun, Oct. 28 @ Detroit: As mentioned above, the Hawks return to the field of Super Bowl XL. Last time we played here it was a field goal fest, but I highly doubt that will happen again given the Lion’s high powered aerial assault. Hawks 35 – Lions 38 OT

Sun, Nov. 4 Minnesota: A welcome back for Hutch (Braincramp), and a good time to get a home win. The Vikes weren’t the toughest team to play last year, and I assume that will be the case again this year.

I hope. Hawks 28 – Vikings 14

Sun Nov. 11 New York Jets: Tebow-Mania strikes Seattle! I wonder how much of an impact he will have on the team this year.

Regardless, Pete Carroll should want this one pretty bad. Hawks 17 – Jets 24

Sun, Nov. 18 BYE WEEK

Sun, Nov. 25 @ Miami: Another trip to the east coast for the Hawks. At least the scheduling committee granted us some warm weather destinations this year. Hawks 24 – Phins 17

Sun, Dec. 2 @ Chicago: And so the final month of the season starts in Chicago. A place that has always been a tough game for the Hawks.

Cold weather, gritty defense, loud fans. If the Hawks want to contend, these are the types of games they need to win on the road. Hawks 10 – Bears 17

Sun, Dec. 9 Arizona: Home for the first time in 4 weeks, and against the Cards again, another must win game. By this time in the season the Cards should have their QB situation resolved, unless Kevin Kolb is injured again that is. Hawks 31 – Cards 28

Sun, Dec. 16 @ Buffalo (Toronto): The Hawks go north of the border for some football this time, against the Bills and their Canadian fans in Toronto. Hawks 14 – Bills 10

Sun, Dec. 23 San Francisco: Win, win, win. That is the only thing that should be on the minds of the Hawks at this point of the season. Especially against this opponent in our building! Hawks 21 – 49ers 20

Sun, Dec. 30 St. Louis: The last time these two teams met on the final day of the year, the division title was on the line. Hawks 28 – Rams 7

Let’s hope that will be the case again this year!

Prediction: A 9-7 year.

    Can’t wait for the Monday night game against Green Bay! Might have to make the trip down.

    Seahawks should have a top 5 defence this year. They also should be able to control the clock with a good running game. The season will depend on how Flynn does. With a full camp and another year under their belt this is an up and coming team. I see them at 10 plus wins and challenging for the division title. Look out NFL here comes the Seahawks in a much improved division.
