The Seahawks open up the 2012 season with a rematch of the final game of last season. What, you didn’t know that? Oh yeah, The NFL released the schedule for the upcoming season on Tuesday. You probably weren’t paying attention but don’t worry I was. There were five games that grabbed my attention as the most interesting of the coming season.

Week one: Seahawks at Cardinals: The Seahawks couldn’t have asked for a more compelling opening game. The Seahawks last match-up with the cardinals was a great game that went into overtime but that’s not what makes the first game so interesting. No, the interesting thing is that the Seahawks and Cardinals are both considered as challengers to the 49ers stranglehold on the NFC west and this first game will go a long way to showing which of them is going to be a contender.

Week three: Packers at Seahawks: as the Seahawks only Monday night game of the season this would be interesting no matter whom the Seahawks were playing.
