SEATTLE – A Thursday night home season opener against Green Bay, an early Super Bowl rematch with Denver and a Thanksgiving Day game at San Francisco highlight the Seahawks’ 2014 regular-season schedule, announced Wednesday by the NFL.
Seattle’s schedule also features a Monday night game at Washington as well as a Sunday night contest at Arizona. In all, the Seahawks will have four nationally televised contests in prime time, matching their total of 2013. More could be added later under the NFL’s flex scheduling policy.
Seattle will play seven games against teams that made the playoffs in 2013. The combined record of Seattle’s opponents a year ago was 143-112-1, a .561 winning percentage that makes it the sixth-toughest schedule in the NFL.
• Trufant returns: Marcus Trufant, who started 125 games in a Seattle career that lasted from 2003 to 2012, signed a contract with the team so he can then officially retire as a Seahawk today.
Trufant, a cornerback, was a first-round pick in 2003 out of Washington State.
