Denver Broncos vs Seattle Seahawks (By: FairPlayBet)
Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks in the opening round of the 2018/19 NFL season. One of the best games early in the season. Two sides who both have had major role in the recent years. They met in the 2014 Superbowl when Seahawks easily won. Still, two years later Denver won the Superbowl by beating Carolina Panthers. Seattle had one more finals which they lost from NE Patriots in 2015. So, we can say thee two sides, Broncos and Seahawks are among those best in last few years.
Last season was to say modest for both. Denver Broncos were only 5-11 while Seattle Seahawks 9-7 but they too missed the playoffs. Now both are aiming to get back into playoffs but IMO Denver Broncos have much better chances for it.
Seattle has remained without many more or less important guys, they heavily regrouped and IMO wont have any major role this time. Pete Carroll is amazing coach but with curent groups of guys probably wont be able to achieve much. Offense probably is going to be their weakest point while now will need to face Broncos whose best part is defense. So, this is probably going to be very tough game for the visiting team.
For Seattle right guard D.J. Fluker is out (hamstring injury). Also the right tackle Germain Ifedi injured his ankle in the final preseason game and is questionable for today.
Also I like the fact that Seattle traditionally play poor on the road early in the season. They were not able to win road game in September in last five years. On the other side it is completely opposite with Broncos when playing at home early on. They have lost just once out of their last twenty home games when those were matches from the first two weeks of the regular season.
Russell Wilson is the QB for Seattle while Case Keenum for Denver. Keenum is 2-0 all time in meetings with Seattle Seahawks. Note he wasn't amazing in those two games but he still was solid enough, never allowed turnovers and secured victories for his team. He has arrived from Minnesota as a free agent and IMO will repeat great year he had with the Vikings.
