After hearing Seahawk fan aren't even paying us attention on Week 1, and looking at their Week 2 game against the 49ers. My first thought was this could work to our advantage (If the team is doing the same).
After looking through the schedule, I noticed we have the potential to be in a lot of "trap games" this season. These types of games have got us a few times over the years, just look at the KC game last season.
So here's the run-down of who our opponents have the week AFTER the Panthers:
Seahawks: 49ers- Huge divisional game as home opener.
Bills: Jets- Another division game. I'm not too worried about the Bills but if they are looking at week 3, we may slaughter them.
Giants: Chiefs- This one isn't a big game at all. But maybe they will be looking past both teams for their Week 5 game against the Eagles.
Cardinals: 49ers- Huge division game. They will probably be more worried about the 49ers than us this early.
Vikings: Giants- This is a big game on MNF. Depending on both teams records, this could push someone to the top of their division.
Rams: Seahawks- YET ANOTHER NFCW divisional game. That division might be a race for the top at this point, Rams might be looking to stop the Seahawks climb. Also a MNF game.
49ers: Saints- This will probably be billed early as a preview for the NFC Championship Game.
Patriots: Broncos- The hate between Brady/Manning might be flowing early. Could we take advantage of Tom's unfocused play? Sunday Night Game.
Dolphins: Jets- Divisional game. Doubt either will be in the running for the playoffs but they may still put up a fight against each other to put them in the basement.
The rest are NFCS games (and the Jets, who might be playing for #1 Pick by that time) so they will be focused on us. BUT, if the past is any indication, we could turn it on late again and run the table on our division.
