If true, it’d be the Seahawks vs. Broncos in Week 1 for the second time in three seasons.

We’re still a day away from knowing the Seattle Seahawks’ 2024 regular season schedule, but we know there will be leaks and “process of elimination” confirmations from now until the 5 PM PT reveal on May 15.

Longtime Sports Radio KJR host Dave “Softy” Mahler is hearing that for the second time in three seasons, the Seahawks’ Week 1 opponent will be none other than the Denver Broncos.

However you feel about Softy’s sports takes, he’s historically been reliable as far as schedule leaks, so I’m inclined to believe this is true. It’s safe to say this is not Sunday Night Football material, so it’ll be a 1 pm PT kickoff on either CBS or FOX.

We’re two years removed from the Seahawks’ emotionally charged 17-16 win over the Broncos on Monday Night Football back in 2022. It was Russell Wilson’s return to Seattle and the start of Geno Smith’s incredible comeback story. Both teams have since changed head coaches and substantially overhauled their respective rosters. The touchdowns were scored by Will Dissly, Colby Parkinson, and Jerry Jeudy. All of them have new teams. Pro Bowl safeties Quandre Diggs, Jamal Adams, and Justin Simmons all played in the 2022 game. All of them have not only been cut, they’ve yet to sign with a new team. Russ is with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Bo Nix was taken in the first round as his replacement. The 2024 matchup will be almost entirely different from the previous meeting.

I suppose we have to wait this out for 24 hours, but it looks like the Mike Macdonald era will begin against Sean Payton’s Broncos.
