The Seattle Seahawks have five prime-time games scheduled, including three straight in October as a part of their first 17-game regular season schedule.

Seattle opens the season on the road against Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts. The home opener follows the next weekend against the Tennessee Titans.

Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams, Sunday night at the Pittsburgh Steelers and Monday night against the New Orleans Saints make up the three-game prime-time run for Seattle in Weeks 5-7 in October. The game against the Steelers is the matchup added that fulfills the 17th game of the schedule for the Seahawks. It's the first expansion of the regular season for the NFL since the league went from 14 to 16 games in 1978.

Additional prime-time games come with a Monday night matchup at the Washington Football Team in Week 12 and a Sunday night meeting at home against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13.

Seattle's bye week also comes conveniently placed right in the middle of the schedule in Week 9 with eight games before the bye and nine afterward.
