According to Lombardi, the Broncos will open up their season on the road against the Seahawks in Week 1. He details this will be scheduled for a primetime matchup on Monday Night Football.

Both Broncos and Seahawks' fans knew Wilson would make his return to the Seattle at some point during the regular season. The NFL announced the opponents and locations for all 32 teams shortly into the offseason. But, a Week 1 primetime slate for this matchup is simply perfect.

After 10 years in Seattle, capped off with a Super Bowl Championship and nine Pro Bowl appearances, Wilson's return will be an emotional affair.

Wilson's departure left both sides heading in opposite directions. The Broncos enter the year tied with the sixth-best odds (+1600) to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook. The Seahawks hold +10000 odds to rank T-25th.
