Setting NFC West itinerary at 2012 midpoint
By Mike Sando
We're down to two NFC West games in Week 9 as byes factor into the schedule for the first time this season.
I'll be spending Sunday at CenturyLink Field for the Seattle Seahawks' game against the Minnesota Vikings. I'm also booked for the San Francisco 49ers' home game against the Chicago Bears on "Monday Night Football" in Week 11.
The chart accounts for NFC West game-day coverage to this point. So far, there have been four trips to Candlestick Park, three to University of Phoenix Stadium and one apiece to the Edward Jones Dome and CenturyLink. I've set in bold and underlined the games I've attended or almost certainly will attend.
It's looking like the Week 8 trip to Arizona for the 49ers-Cardinals game could mark the final trip to University of Phoenix Stadium this season. The Cardinals play five of their final eight games on the road.
Seattle still has three division games at home, so it's looking like I'll spend much of December there.
The Tailgate32.com guys will be in Seattle this weekend. I'm hoping to meet up with them there. We recently got together in San Francsico for the Seahawks-49ers game. Here's their video account from that game.
