The 2022 NFL regular season won’t begin for nearly four months, but with free agency and the draft on the books, most teams won’t experience any significant roster changes by the start of the season. training camp in July.
With that in mind, with the Seahawks currently having a full roster of 90 men heading to OTAs later this month, it’s never too early to take a look at the schedule and predict how the season will to come will unfold.
How will Seattle behave in 2022? Here is a brief overview of the cumulative win and loss totals for the 17 scheduled games:
Week 1: Broncos 24, Seahawks 17
2022 record: 0-1
Electricity will be in the air when Russell Wilson returns to Lumen Field to face his former team and while the Seahawks will be ready to throw their best punch, it won’t be enough to beat a superior Broncos team on Monday Night. Soccer. Overcoming a lost fumble from a Darrell Taylor strip-sack in the first quarter, a late touchdown pass from Wilson to KJ Hamler sealed a narrow win over Drew Lock in the ultimate revenge game.
Week 2: 49ers 20, Seahawks 10
2022 record: 0-2
Starting the post-Wilson era with two straight losses wouldn’t be ideal, but even with an untested Trey Lance set to start for the 49ers, this game doesn’t look good for the rebuilding Seahawks. With Nick Bosa teeming with Lock behind a young and inexperienced offensive line and the running game unable to find much traction, the offense can’t be ignored and San Francisco uses a steady dose of its own running offense to pull out late for a victory in its home opener.
Week 3: Seahawks 23, Falcons 16
2022 results: 1-2
There won’t be an easy game on Seattle’s schedule, but drawing Atlanta home will be a nice reprieve after facing two playoff-caliber teams to open the season. Harassing Marcus Mariota early and thwarting the Falcons’ ground game, the Seahawks quickly took a two-point lead behind a big day from Rashaad Penny and never looked back, holding on for a seven-point victory behind.
Week 4: Seahawks 30, Lions 24
2022 results: 2-2
In terms of games to launch on Seattle’s schedule, a road trip to Motown might be high on the list. Coach Dan Campbell has a rising team that could be ready to surprise in the NFC North, but the defense still has holes and struggled last year to slow the run. At the controls of Penny and Ken Walker III, Seattle drives in over 200 rushing yards, Jordyn Brooks intercepts Jared Goff and Lock connects to DK Metcalf on a long touchdown pass to steal a quick road win to make it 2-2 .
Week 5: Saints 26, Seahawks 14
2022 review: 2-3
Winning in New Orleans will always be a difficult task and assuming Jameis Winston recovers from a torn ACL, the Saints could be the best team in the NFC South. The Seahawks stay early with a touchdown pass from Lock to Tyler Lockett, but two interceptions in the second quarter doom the visitors and stage easy touchdowns capped by sliding back Alvin Kamara touchdown passes. As the crowd goes wild, Seattle is ruled out after halftime in a nasty loss on the road.
Week 6: Cardinals 27, Seahawks 23
2022 review: 2-4
For the past decade Seattle has actually had great success at Arizona despite all the injuries at State Farm Stadium and the absence of wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will increase the team’s chances of upsetting the road. Unfortunately, not having Wilson this time around will prevent the Seahawks from putting enough points on the board to ultimately win this one as Kyler Murray and Hollywood Brown connect for a late touchdown to secure the victory.
Week 7: Seahawks 31, Chargers 30
2022 review: 3-4
On paper, the Chargers should electrocute the Seahawks into submission in this game with Justin Herbert in high school and Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack devouring Lock in the pocket. But there isn’t a team in the NFL that more regularly finds ways to stumble in winnable games and while they’re in the hunt for an AFC West title, that will end up being a rare blemish with Penny and Walker scoring three combined touchdowns on the floor and Jason Myers making a game-winning field goal in front of a 12-second road crowd in the dying seconds.
Week 8: Seahawks 20, Giants 14
2022 results: 4-4
Under new coach Brian Daboll, the Giants are set to take a step up in the win/loss column and they have plenty of exciting young talent on both sides of the ball. But with slicks of rain falling from the sky, Daniel Jones and Lock combine to throw for less than 250 yards and no touchdowns and Walker takes advantage of a career day with 145 rushing yards and a pair of scores to outscore Saquon Barkley in a low-scoring affair that will likely be a sight for sore eyes.
Week 9: Cardinals 34, Seahawks 17
2022 review: 4-5
While Seattle gave Arizona a hard time just four weeks earlier, Hopkins’ return coupled with the Cardinals dominating at Lumen Field doesn’t bode well for Carroll’s team. Murray gets off to a quick start with a pair of touchdown shots to Hopkins and Zach Ertz and the visitors take a 21-3 second quarter lead. Lacking the firepower to come back, the Seahawks blew themselves up on their home turf and fell back below .500.
Week 10: Buccaneers 27, Seahawks 13
2022 review: 4-6
There’s a chance this looks like a home game in Europe with the Seahawks having a strong following in Germany. But as Carroll’s side enter the half just three points behind after a DK Metcalf scores on a 40-yard bomb and Sidney Jones knocks out Tom Brady late in the second quarter, the GOAT is avenged with touchdown strikes against Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, helping the Buccaneers break away in the second half for a fairly comfortable victory in the International Series.
Week 11: GOODBYE
Week 12: Raiders 33, Seahawks 24
2022 review: 4-7
Playing at home will give the Seahawks a chance to upset and Lock plays with home money throwing touchdowns early to Lockett and Noah Fant to give his team a 17-14 halftime advantage. But talent eventually won out in the league and Derek Carr caught fire from the break, leading Las Vegas on three unanswered goals to push the lead to 27-17. Seattle’s defense managed to hold the opposition out of the end zone down the stretch, but a pair of late field goals sealed the team’s fate with a third straight loss.
Week 13: Rams 37, Seahawks 20
2022 review: 4-8
Back on the road at SoFi Stadium, Bobby Wagner gets his revenge by intercepting Lock and producing 14 tackles in his first game against his former team. On the other side, Matthew Stafford has too many weapons to keep this game close for long and connects with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson for a pair of first-half touchdowns to create a 21-point midfield advantage. -weather. As Lock throws a pair of touchdowns in foul weather, this game is on the books after three quarters.
Week 14: Seahawks 25, Panthers 18
2022 review: 5-8
Every time the Seahawks and Panthers get together, weird things seem to happen on the field, and with both teams set to be cellar dwellers this year, expect the weirdness to go up a notch. notch. With Lock and Sam Darnold dueling – if you want to call it that – in the rain, Christian McCaffrey proves to be a problem for Seattle and breaks free for a 65-yard touchdown run. Luckily, Darnold throws a telegraphed interception to Quandre Diggs, who goes 54 yards for a pick six, and a late touchdown from Penny secures a “scorigami” victory.
Week 15: Seahawks 26, 49ers 23
2022 review: 6-8
After falling short against their bitter rivals at the start of the season, Seattle gets off to a good start in the Thursday Night Football spotlight with rookie Boye Mafe strip-sacking Lance deep in San Francisco territory in first practice and paving the way for a Penny Touchdown. As the 49ers slashed the Seahawks for 173 rushing yards, the inability to finish in the red zone at Lumen Field ended up costing them as a late field goal from Myers ended up being the deciding point.
Week 16: Chiefs 38, Seahawks 16
2022 results: 6-9

Holding on to slim playoff hopes, Seattle stuns the Arrowhead Crowd with a methodical long touchdown to open the game as Lock connects with Dee Eskridge on a contraband rollout to give his team a 7-0 advantage. After that, however, Patrick Mahomes burns the Seahawks secondary with 418 passing yards and four touchdowns and Chris Jones thrice fires Lock, turning this game into a Christmas Eve massacre and putting a dagger in the coffin of the playoffs. from Seattle.
Week 17: Seahawks 23, Jets 20
2022 review: 7-9
With little to play for other than draft positioning, Seattle ushers in the new year with a solid performance against an improving New York Jets team that isn’t quite ready for prime time. Jamal Adams fills in the stat sheet against his old team with a sack and an interception, while Geno Smith saves for a broken Lock and enacts revenge of his own with touchdown passes to Metcalf and Will Dissly. Zach Wilson nearly brings the Jets back in the final moments, but a failed fourth conversion leads to a tough loss on the road.
Week 18: Rams 30, Seahawks 20
2022 review: 7-10
If the Rams have already locked down the NFC West and potentially the top seed in the conference at this point, the Seahawks could play against reserves and have an excellent chance of eclipsing their 2021 record. But for this simulation, Los Angeles has still something to play for and while Seattle fights back better than in Week 13, Kupp and tight end Tyler Higbee prove too much to handle and a steady effort from Smith is wasted. in a season-ending 10-point loss.
