Earlier, the NFL announced that Sunday afternoon games can be flexed, based on national appeal, into Sunday night games starting this season at Week 5 of the NFL schedule. Previously, games could not be flexed from an afternoon game into a Sunday night game until Week 11. The change will not affect Thursday, Saturday, or Monday games.

The last time the Seahawks had a game "flexed" into prime time was on Dec. 23, 2012, when their Sunday afternoon game with the San Francisco 49ers was bumped into the evening slot. The Seahawks won 42-13.
