Seattle Seahawks schedule this week
Week 4 – @ San Francisco 49ers
|Sunday, Oct. 3||4:05 PM||FOX|
- Point spread: 49ers -3.5
- Moneyline: TBD
- Over/under: 50.0
- Sportsnaut prediction: 49ers 31, Seahawks 23
Following a vicious Super Bowl hangover, San Francisco has proven that it’s back in a big way. Numerous key starters return from injuries, including starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo and pass-rusher Nick Bosa. This Seahawks D won’t be able to stop San Francisco’s talented offense.

Week 1 – Seattle Seahawks won 28-16 @ Indianapolis Colts
- When: Sunday, Sept. 12 @ 1:00 PM on FOX
- Spread: Seahawks -2.5
- Moneyline: Seahawks -145; Colts +125
- Over/Under: 49.5
- Sportsnaut Prediction: Seahawks 31, Colts 26
A Carson Wentz renaissance in Indianapolis? Don’t hold your breath, Colts fans, despite the brilliance of Frank Reich. Wentz is dealing with monumental expectations, and any slip-up will be heavily scrutinized. He proved in Philly he’s not ready for that. Russell Wilson overwhelmed Indy with four touchdown passes in Week 1, as the Seahawks rolled to an easy road win.
Week 2 — Seattle Seahawks lost to the Tennessee Titans at home in overtime, 33-30
- When: Sunday, September 19 at 4:15 PM EST
- Spread: Seahawks -6.0
- Moneyline: Titans +210; Seahawks -260
- Over/Under: 54.0
- Sportsnaut prediction: Seahawks 35, Titans 28
Week 3 — Seattle Seahawks lost to the Minnesota Vikings on the road, 30-17
- When: Sunday, September 26 at 4:05 PM EST
- Point spread: Seahawks -2.0
- Moneyline: Vikings +105; Seahawks -125
- Over/under: 54.0
- Sportsnaut prediction: Seahawks 31, Vikings 24
Seattle has now dropped two consecutive after a season-opening win. As with Week 2, this loss was all about a lack of a strong defense. Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-38 passes for 323 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Even without Dalvin Cook in the mix, Minnesota’s offense dominated against the Seahawks’ defense. That’s going to be a continued issue for this team.
Seattle Seahawks schedule predictions
Week 5 – vs. Los Angeles Rams (TNF)
|Thursday, Oct. 7||8:20 PM||FOX, NFLN|
These Rams just seem like too tough of a foe for Seattle to knock off, regardless of the venue. Seattle’s defense is bound to be overwhelmed by Los Angeles’ upgraded aerial attack, although the Rams’ own losses in the secondary will make this duel in the Emerald City a scoreboard-lighting fireworks show.
- Week 5 prediction: Rams 37, Seahawks 34
Week 6 – @ Pittsburgh Steelers (SNF)
|Sunday, Oct. 17||8:20 PM||NBC|
This one could get ugly. It’ll probably come down to the last possession, but given the Seahawks’ superior ability to run the ball and Wilson’s superiority to Ben Roethlisberger, bet on the visitors to get it done at Heinz Field.
- Week 6 prediction: Seahawks 17, Steelers 16
Week 7 – vs. New Orleans Saints (MNF)
|Monday, Oct. 25||8:15 PM||ESPN|
Football is a game of inches, and when one extremely turnover-happy QB is on one side, chances are, that team is going to lose — especially if they’re on the road. That’s what the Saints have in starter Jameis Winston. This isn’t the same New Orleans juggernaut from years past.
- Week 7 prediction: Seahawks 31, Saints 20
Week 8 – vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
|Sunday, Oct. 31||4:05 PM||CBS|
Trevor Lawrence is going to keep the Jaguars competitive, but the hostile environment of Lumen Field, combined with the Jaguars’ collective inexperience, is going to be magnified in a setting like this.
- Week 8 prediction: Seahawks 26, Jaguars 17
WEEK 9 BYE
Week 10 – @ Green Bay Packers
|Sunday, Nov. 14||4:25 PM||CBS|
Simple exercise here: Aaron Rodgers returned to Green Bay, so the Packers are going to get the “W” at Lambeau Field. They just have too much offensive firepower for Seattle’s pencil-thin secondary to contend with. Davante Adams should have a huge, double-digit catch afternoon with multiple touchdowns.
- Week 10 prediction: Packers 41, Seahawks 30
Week 11 – vs. Arizona Cardinals
|Sunday, Nov. 21||4:25 PM||FOX|
Being at home is more significant to the Seahawks than almost any other NFL team. They should be able to rattle Cardinals QB Kyler Murray, who hasn’t had to really deal with that 12th Man smoke in a true pressure situation to date.
- Week 11 prediction: Seahawks 21, Cardinals 17
Week 12 – @ Washington Football Team (MNF)
|Monday, Nov. 29||8:15 PM||ESPN|
That Washington defense is going to present some serious problems for a Seahawks offensive line that will be under the microscope as Wilson’s every move and body language are analyzed this year. The Football Team can also burn Seattle over the top with Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel and Dyami Brown.
- Week 12 prediction: Washington 23, Seahawks 20
Week 13 – vs. San Francisco 49ers (SNF)
|Sunday, Dec. 5||8:20 PM||NBC|
Venue matters here, because if the Seahawks seize the early momentum, San Francisco’s offense isn’t as suited to play from behind since it’s so dependent upon the running game. Unless Trey Lance adds in a few surprise wrinkles to change the game, Seattle should take care of business.
- Week 13 prediction: Seahawks 28, 49ers 24
Week 14 – @ Houston Texans
|Sunday, Dec. 12||1:00 PM||FOX|
Another easy one. No one has less talent on their roster than the Texans do. Seattle might roll up something like 500 yards of offense in this game. Anything less could be viewed as a disappointment.
- Week 14 prediction: Seahawks 35, Texans 10
Week 15 – @ Los Angeles Rams
|Sunday, Dec. 19||4:25 PM||FOX|
Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, DeSean Jackson and Tutu Atwell will probably give Los Angeles a five-deep receiving corps for new signal-caller Matthew Stafford to work with. Too many weapons for Seattle to handle on the back end, particularly without the 12th Man fans bellowing in support.
- Week 15 prediction: Rams 38, Seahawks 27
Week 16 – vs. Chicago Bears
|Sunday, Dec. 26||4:05 PM||FOX|
Andy Dalton being atop the quarterback depth chart in Chicago makes it extremely difficult to forecast the Bears’ season. They certainly don’t have an easy slate, and a road trip to Seattle is no exception. This should be a throwback, low-scoring game that Wilson helps the Seahawks pull out, but if Justin Fields is, as expected, in action by this point, don’t be shocked if the visitors pull out an upset.
- Week 16 prediction: Seahawks 20, Bears 19
Week 17 – vs. Detroit Lions
|Sunday, Jan. 2||4:25 PM||FOX|
As tough as it’ll be for Jared Goff to succeed as the Lions’ new quarterback, it’ll be doubly tough to do so against the Seahawks. Goff has faced many times before, but under far more favorable circumstances as a member of the Rams. This has blowout written all over it.
- Week 17 prediction: Seahawks 38, Lions 13
Week 18 – @ Arizona Cardinals
|Sunday, Jan. 9||4:25 PM||FOX|
Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has more juice in his legs than Wilson at this point, and the Cardinals’ front seven is far and away superior to the group Seattle has. Arizona imposing its will at the line of scrimmage, combined with home-field advantage, leads to a Seahawks defeat.
- Week 18 prediction: Cardinals 27, Seahawks 23
