Coming off of a tough loss, the Seahawks will be looking to fire on all cylinders. Add in the greatest home field advantage in the world, and it makes things even more difficult for the Broncos.
It’s all too important that the defense step up early because I’m betting the offense won’t come out firing. If they can weather Seattle’s early barrages of crowd noise and forced mental miscues, then the Broncos can instill their keys to victory.
While Denver’s plethora of new starters and added pieces are gelling, their personnel is still vastly different this time around, and it’s hard to imagine this being anything else than a close, nail-biter of a game.
An epic rematch awaits the football world Sunday afternoon when two powerhouses of the NFL meet in their rematch of the Super Bowl.
Let’s just hope the Broncos don’t go sleepless in Seattle.
