Rams have tough early slate as 2015 NFL schedule is released

The St. Louis Rams released their 2015 NFL season schedule Tuesday, which includes games against four playoff teams in their first five games, starting with the defending NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks at home for the season opener on Sept. 13.

The lone game on prime-time television for the Rams is a Thursday, Dec. 17 home game against Tampa Bay that will be shown on the NFL Network. The Rams close out the season with two tough road games at Seattle (Dec. 27) and San Francisco (Jan. 3).

This season marks the third in a row and fifth in six years that the Rams will play in the Edward Jones Dome in Week 1 and the first time that the team will host the Seahawks for a season opener. The teams last played in Week 1 at Seattle in 2009.

If the Rams follow through on their proposed move to Los Angeles, the Dec. 17 home game against Tampa Bay could be the last at the Edward Jones Done.
