Honing in on the home games

Published on August 30, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

The defending NFC West champions will play at CenturyLink Field only three times in the first two months, but that also means the Seahawks will be home five times in the final eight weeks.

Here’s a closer look at a Top Five of those games to help you decide:

Sept. 25 vs. Arizona – It’s not only the home opener, after back-to-back road trips to San Francisco and Pittsburgh, the Cardinals have found a better option to get Larry Fitzgerald the ball in QB Kevin Kolb. They acquired Kolb in a trade with the Eagles after a season of watching Derek Anderson, John Skelton and Max Hall complete 50 percent of their passes – and try the patience of coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Oct. 2 vs. Atlanta – The Falcons were eliminated from the playoffs last season by the buzz saw that was the eventual Super Bowl champion Packers. But Atlanta remains loaded, with Matt Ryan passing to Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez (who combined for 185 receptions and 16 TDs last season) and handing the ball to Michael Turner (1,371 rushing yards and 12 TDs).

Dec. 1 vs. Philadelphia – A nationally televised Thursday nighter against the Eagles and ballyhooed QB Michael Vick. The Eagles won 10 games last season and came closer than anyone else in the playoffs to the Packers, losing 21-16 in the first round. The Eagles will be coming off a Nov. 27 game against the Patriots, so that coupled with a short week to prepare and the long trip to Seattle should play to the Seahawks’ favor.

Dec. 12 vs. St. Louis – This is a rematch of the 2010 regular-season finale that decided the NFC West title, so the Rams will be looking for some revenge. They also seem to be this season’s trendy pick to win the division, in large part because of second-year QB Sam Bradford.

Dec. 24 vs. San Francisco – And what better way to celebrate Christmas Eve than to have the Seahawks stuff the 49ers into the nearest stocking, which undoubtedly will be hung by the crazed throng in the south end zone that won’t care how the Seahawks win this one as long as they win this one.

Tickets are available for these games, as well as those against the Cincinnati Bengals (Oct. 30), Baltimore Ravens (Nov. 13) and Washington Redskins (Nov. 27). To purchase tickets, click here or call 888-635-4295.

The game against the Ravens just missed making the Top 5 list, because it’s likely will be the last time to see future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis in the flesh in Seattle.
