Two of the most talent-rich rosters in the NFL will take the field Sunday as the Denver Broncos (2-0) travel to Northwest to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks (1-1) at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
"I think we've got to caution ourselves from trying to make this a revenge for the Super Bowl game," tight end Julius Thomas said. "This is the 2014 season, but we're still playing a very tough opponent-probably what a lot of people consider one of the better teams in this league. When you're going up against a playoff team three weeks in a row, you've got to keep on making a statement to everybody else in the league about what type of team we're going to be this year. So we're going to approach it as if we're playing a really good team this season."
Neither the Broncos or Seahawks are statistically dominant, two weeks into the 2014 season, but both teams seem to recognize that the marathon that is the NFL has just gotten started. The Seahawks and Broncos are 4th and 5th in points scored this season, respectively. The Broncos have the edge in the passing game on both sides of the ball (theoretically), while the Seahawks clearly have an advantage in the running game on both sides.
Kickoff is set for 2:25 p.m. MDT on Sunday, September 21, 2014 - that's 1:25 p.m. local time Seattle.
