There's no denying the Seattle Seahawks are a much different team on the road than at home, but can it all be placed on their location forcing them to travel more than any other team? Travel from west-to-east has been a debated topic in the NFL and we have found data that is certainly interesting, though not largely conclusive on whether or not the Pacific teams are at a significant disadvantage.
Keep in mind the longest road winning streak in NFL history belongs to the 1988-90 49ers, who actually won 21 consecutive games away from Candlestick Park when including the playoffs.
Regardless of whether or not you think there's a problem here, it shouldn't be that hard on the NFL to schedule more of these West/East games for 4:15 p.m. ET.

In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.
