According to Mike Klis of 9News, the Denver Broncos will open the 2018 regular season against the Seattle Seahawks. It will take place in the afternoon slot on September 9th. It’s also a Super Bowl 48 rematch between two teams that are barely shells of the teams that faced off in that game.
The Broncos hold a 34-21 record over the Seahawks all-time, but mostly from their stint as division rivals in the 80s and 90s. In recent history, the rivalry has been controlled by the Seahawks who have won two of the last three games since 2010.
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are notorious for slow starts to the season, so this could be a good opportunity for the Broncos to jump out to an early start. After all, the Broncos are also notorious for their fast starts.
Not only that, the Broncos have won 17 of their last 18 home openers.
The streak of #Broncos home openers continues. They have opened at home each season since 2011. The last time Denver opened on the road was 2010 in Jacksonville. The Broncos also are 17-1 in their last 18 home openers. https://t.co/oVC20R5lPy— Ian St. Clair (@IanStClair) April 19, 2018
