The NFL announced the regular season schedule this afternoon, which you can view here.

For a second straight season the Seattle Seahawks received a nationally televised, regular season game.

New Seattle quarterback Matt Flynn will get a chance to play his old team, the Green Bay Packers, on Monday Night Football at CenturyLink Field on Sept. 24.

The Seahawks also have a Thursday night road game at San Francisco on the NFL Network on Oct. 18, and an international matchup as Seattle takes on Buffalo in Toronto, Canada on Dec. 16, the club’s first regular season game outside the United States.

The Seahawks had no scheduled nationally televised games in 2009 and 2010, and just two in 2008, Mike Holmgren’s last as head coach in Seattle – a Thanksgiving Day game in Dallas and a Sunday night tilt in Tampa.

The Seahawks regular season finale of the 2010 season against St. Louis was flexed into the schedule for a national audience on NBC with the NFC West title on the line, a game Seattle won 16-6.

Hawks preseason schedule released

The league released the preseason schedule today, and the Seahawks will face Tennessee and Green Bay at home, Minnesota and Oakland on the road.

Seattle usually plays a steady diet of AFC West teams during the exhibition season to cut down on travel, but likely only plays Oakland this year because the Seahawks play the AFC West during the regular season. Dates for the games have not been announced.

The regular season schedule is expected to be announced in mid-April, but Seattle’s opponents are already locked in.

The Seahawks will host Arizona, San Francisco, St. Louis, Atlanta,

Hawks not ready for prime time: No nationally televised games

Here are some quick thoughts on Seattle’s 2009 schedule.
Seattle opens up with four of six games at home, including St. Louis, Chicago, Jacksonville and Arizona.

Seattle head coach Jim Mora had to like that debuting as Seattle’s head coach in 2009.
