At long last, the return of NFL football is here. Week 1 of the 2022 regular season got underway with a Buffalo Bills win on Thursday Night Football. Sunday's schedule is jam-packed before a premium nationally broadcast game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks on Monday night.
The storylines are plentiful for this Monday Night Football clash, notably the immediate return of Russell Wilson to his former team and city of Seattle. Fans should be in for a slugfest, one dominated by the Broncos, who enter as hefty 6.5-point favorites.
Denver also sits at -290 on the moneyline, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds. Geno Smith has big shoes to fill in his debut as Seattle's clear-cut starting quarterback. Wilson spent 10 seasons in Seattle and is the franchise leader in completions (3,079), passing yards (37,059) and passing touchdowns (292).
