Super Bowl rematch set for September 21

The Broncos were aggressive about overhauling their defense this offseason after getting routed 43-8 in the Super Bowl by the Seahawks and they won’t have to wait too many weeks before getting a chance to see how the unit measures up to Seattle this time.

Denver will travel to Seattle on September 21 for a Week Three date against the Seahawks. The 4:25 p.m. ET start will be broadcast by CBS and shares the stage that week with DeSean Jackson’s early Sunday return to Philadelphia.

It has been a long time since two Super Bowl participants squared off the next season. The last rematch between conference champions came all the way back in October 1997 when the Packers beat the Patriots to repeat the result of their Super Bowl matchup earlier that year.

The Seahawks will also visit the Broncos to kick off their preseason schedule on August 7, which means we’ll be seeing the two teams meet under three different circumstances in a little less than eight months.

    Seattle stomped Denver in the preseason last year too.

    I hate to say it, but I don’t think Denver can beat Seattle at home or anywhere else, unless they shake things up and complete a couple bombs, but Fox teams don’t do that much.

    Probably the same outcome.

    Note to Fox; you might want to prepare for crowd noise this time around.

    If Denver is twice as good as they were last year, and Seattle is half as good, the score would still be something like 21 to 16.

    Only Denver isn’t twice as good, and Seattle isn’t half as good.
