RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks will open their title defense on Thursday, Sept. 4, against the Green Bay Packers.

The Seahawks announced their 2014 schedule Wednesday. It will be the first meeting with Green Bay since Seattle’s disputed Hail Mary win over the Packers in 2012.

Seattle will host Denver in a Super Bowl rematch in Week 3 followed by the Seahawks bye week. Seattle travels to Washington for a Monday night game on Oct. 6, hosts Dallas in Week 6 and travels to Carolina in Week 8.

The Seahawks close the season with five of six against division rivals beginning in Week 12 vs. Arizona. The Seahawks travel to San Francisco on Thanksgiving night, and host the 49ers two weeks later.

Seattle is at Arizona for a Sunday night game in Week 16 and hosts St. Louis in Week 17.
