Saturday Seahawks notes and links: Schedule for 2015 taking shape

So recall that one thing that happens tomorrow is that the exact lineup of opponents for 2015 will be set.

Not that there is much drama — given the schedule rotation, only two opponents each year are up in the air. But each of those will be determined tomorrow depending on the outcome of Seattle’s games and those elsewhere.

Let’s take a quick look.

Here are the home opponents for 2015:

St. Louis

Arizona

San Francisco

Chicago

Detroit

Cleveland

Pittsburgh

Same-place finisher in NFC South

And here are the away opponents:

St. Louis

Arizona

San Francisco

Green Bay

Minnesota

Baltimore

Cincinnati

Same-place finisher in NFC East

So the other home opponent will be either Atlanta or Carolina depending on which of those teams wins the ┬áSouth and if Seattle wins the the West (and yay! — a possible fourth straight year of playing the Panthers!)

As for the other road game, Dallas is already assured of winning the NFC East. So if Seattle wins the West, then the Seahawks will head there in 2015 — and you wonder if that might be a really tempting game for Thanksgiving (though I guess you also wonder if the NFL would put the Seahawks on the road on Thanksgiving for two straight years). If Seattle doesn’t win the West, then it would travel for a second year to Philadelphia, which will finish second in the East.

Remember that the order of the games — dates and times and all that — won’t be set until April. But after to tomorrow, we’ll know for sure who the Seahawks are playing.

Seattle, of course, has bigger worries tomorrow. But how the final schedule unfolds is one thing to watch as the day develops.
