Seahawks 2013 preseason schedule announced

The Seahawks – and the rest of the NFL for that matter – released their 2013 preseason schedule today.

The Seahawks open at San Diego (game to be played Aug. 8-11, exact dates to be released later). In Week 2, they host the Denver Broncos (Aug. 15-19).

Week 3 is a game that will be televised nationally and one that will get a lot of attention – the Packers in Green Bay. I'm sure they'll be a few cheeseheads who haven't forgotten the catch/non-catch call from last season. That game is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Aug. 23.

And, the Seahawks will end the preseason at home against the Oakland Raiders and the just traded Matt Flynn.

Other tidbits:

• The NFL's slate of 11 nationally televised preseason games will feature the entire 2012 playoff field, one of the highlights of the 65-game 2013 NFL preseason schedule.

• The 2013 preseason will kick off on Sunday, Aug. 4 (NBC, 5 p.m.) in Canton, Ohio, when the Dallas Cowboys face the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame Game.
