Seattle Seahawks too good for NFL primetime

The NFL has decided that the Seattle Seahawks are too good to play home games on primetime television.

It seems that there is a price to pay for becoming too good, and the Seahawks will pay for it next season.

The league has come to the conclusion that their home contests during primetime games in recent years have been to 'uncompetitve' for the league's liking, and now they have taken action on Seattle as a result.

This means we won't see many home games for the Seahawks in 2014 until they decide to stop being good. All sounds ridiculous doesn't it, but it's true according to reports.

NFL insider Curtis Crabtree explains, "The Seattle Seahawks will host the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 4 for the kickoff of the 2014 NFL season. However, it’s the only time this year the defending Super Bowl champions will be at home for a nationally televised prime-time game."

The NFL has decided to obviously give the Seahawks more than just one primetime game during the 2014 season.

But the Seattle will have to go on the road for those three other games.

For all of their dominance, it doesn't exactly create excellent TV viewing, with the NFL taking necessary measures to curb the problem.
