Like every home opener for the Seahawks since 2012, this year’s will feature Russell Wilson.

The catch is obvious. He’ll be playing for the other team.

One of the most anticipated games of the year –Denver at Seattle — serves as the Week One Monday night contest, according to Vic Lombardi of Altitude Sports.

The league could have held that one for a much bigger audience, either in the late-afternoon window on CBS or FOX or a Sunday night on NBC. Chances are that this specific Week One game will be televised by ABC, not ESPN.

Regardless, it will be a memorable final act to the opening week of the season. And it will make the official start of his tenure with the Broncos memorable and emotional.

  1. Just so I get this straight… the best game for the benchmark game of the first week of the season is a broken down Russell Wilson versus Geno Smith? Doesn’t bode well for the rest of the games that week.

  2. Does this game count as two?

    No, it doesn’t.

    It may make the difference at the end of the regular season, but since it’s played in week one, no one really cares.

  3. Can’t wait to see Pete pacing and chompin’ that gum when Russ throws one of them lob jobs to Jeudy. If Jeudy isn’t incarcerated

  4. The league hopes it still won’t be obvious to some people that Seattle is tanking, so we get primetime Geno Smith or Drew Lock.
