After months of anticipation and debate about the prospects for the 2022 season, the moment fans have been waiting for has arrived: It’s time for the Seattle Seahawks to take on the Denver Broncos in the final game of Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season and the first game of the post-Russell Wilson era in Seattle.
Following an underwhelming preseason, the games are now meaningful, and thanks to the ineptitude of the rest of the NFC West, the Seahawks enter the matchup against Denver sitting in first place atop the division. It’s the first chance for Wilson to show that he was worth a pair of first round picks and a pair of second round picks, while for Geno Smith it’s an opportunity to demonstrate why Pete Carroll gave Smith the nod over Drew Lock to lead the team this season.
For fans who aren’t necessarily excited about the new Monday Night Football announcing crew of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, the ManningCast is back for another seasons and will be available on ESPN2, as well as streaming on ESPN+.
In any case, here are all the details fans need on the matchup, including broadcast information, streaming options, radio commentary and more:
