Pete Carroll gets a break in his first season: The Seahawks face only three teams that made the '09 playoffs, and their interconference division is the AFC West, meaning less cross-country travel than usual—only three of their games are scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Pacific time. Carroll will know early where his club stands in the NFC West, as he'll see all three divisional opponents in the first six games.
