Seattle Seahawks sign Geno Smith to one-year deal as Russell Wilson's backup.

SEATTLE, Wash. — There is still so much to be decided about the 2020 NFL season, but on Thursday, we got the schedule question out of the way.

The Seahawks will open up in Atlanta on Sep. 13 against the Falcons before coming home for one of their three home primetime games. The fourth is away in week 12 for Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Seattle is going through virtual training camp right now, unable to meet in person or workout together. There was a report last week from Mike Florio, an NFL insider, that said the league is considering a season without fans, but they are considering more heavily people attending games at their own risk.

Seattle finished the 2019 season second in the NFC West with an 11-5 record.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, a plan is being formulated with flexibility if there are complications with the coronavirus pandemic.
