Seahawks Host the Eagles on NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football

The Seahawks return to the national spotlight tonight when they meet the Philadelphia Eagles at 5:20 p.m. (PT). It will be Seattle’s first prime time game since being flexed in to NBC’s Sunday Night Football telecast in Week 17 last season.

The game will be televised on NFL Network (check local listings in Seattle) and broadcast on 710 ESPN Radio and 97.3 FM in Seattle. On NFL Network, Brad Nessler will serve as the play-by-play man, joined in the booth by Mike Mayock. It will be Seattle’s second appearance on the network, and first since a 24-14 loss vs. San Francisco on December 14, 2006.

On 710 ESPN Radio and 97.3 FM is former Seahawks receiver Steve Raible in his 30th year of broadcasting, joined by Hall of Famer Warren Moon, with Jen Mueller handling sideline duties. The game will also be broadcast nationally on Westwood One with Ian Eagle, Trent Green and Laura Okmin. Seattle holds a 33-25 prime-time record, including Thanksgiving Day games, a 1-4 record in games played on Thursday and 0-2 record in Thursday night games.

Philadelphia leads the all-time series by a 7-5 advantage. The Eagles have won three of the last five meetings dating back to 2001, including their last visit to CenturyLink Field, a 26-7 victory on November 2, 2008.
