Seahawks fans tickled over the NFL’s Week 18 schedule announcement
One NFL staff’s fan base was already uncomfortable with the league on Week 18, and now one other staff’s fan base has joined them.
On Sunday, the NFL introduced that the Titans and Jags will play for the primary time on Saturday. This has upset Jags followers ever since Jacksonville will now be in a short week For a sport with large penalties whereas the Titans get some further relaxation.
Seattle Seahawks followers now have purpose to complain, identical to Jags followers do.
The NFL has Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers stretch game To the “Sunday Evening Soccer” slot. This upsets Seahawks followers due to how the Lions-Packers sport has impacted their staff.
Seattle is scheduled to host the Los Angeles Rams at 4:25 PM on Sunday. Not solely did the Lions should beat the Packers to make the playoffs because the final wildcard staff within the NFC, however they also need the Seahawks to lose.
The Seahawks sport will likely be over earlier than the Lions and Packers begin, which suggests Detroit will know if they’ve an opportunity to make the playoffs. If the Seahawks win, the Lions will likely be eradicated from the playoffs. On this state of affairs Detroit may not be inspired to play so arduous in opposition to Inexperienced Bay, which might harm Seattle’s playoff probabilities, as a result of Seattle wants a win and the Packers a loss to get the wild card.
The one purpose the NFL is not scheduling Week 18 video games is to keep away from the state of affairs it created by placing the Lions/Packers within the SNF.

When it comes to honest competitors, it could have made rather more sense to place the Lions-Packers sport on Saturday evening and the Jags-Titans on Sunday evening, or have the Lions and Packers play similtaneously the Seahawks. However that would not be so good for the scores.
Additionally, the NFL might simply argue that the Lions will put together and play arduous regardless of the result of the Seahawks sport. They may simply be motivated to win to maintain the Packers out of the playoffs.
