Colts To Open 2021 Season At Home Against Seattle Seahawks

The NFL will release its full 2021 season schedule tonight, but we now know the Colts' Week 1 opponent. 


Mark your calendars: The Colts will kick off the 2021 NFL season Sept. 12 at 1 p.m. against Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks at Lucas Oil Stadium.

After some public signs of frustration and early spring rumors, Wilson is in a "fantastic place" with the Seahawks heading into the 2021 season. The Seahawks have made the playoffs in eight of Wilson's nine seasons as Seattle's starting quarterback; they've won the NFC West in four of those years. Wilson is a seven-time Pro Bowler who threw for a career high 40 touchdowns in 2020.

Seattle's defense also returns two of the NFL's best players on that side of the ball in six-time first-team All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner and three-time Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams.

The Colts and Seahawks have met 12 previous times, the most recent being in 2017 (a 46-18 Seahawks win at CenturyLink Stadium). Seattle's last trip to Indianapolis was in 2013, with the Colts winning, 34-28.
