Russell Wilson will waste no time making his highly anticipated return to Seattle, as the Seahawks are set to host the Broncos on Monday night, and while we should ultimately get some moderate pregame drama, this contest might get ugly in a hurry. Geno Smith gets the start at QB for Seattle, who’s completed just 59% of his passes for 6,917 PYDS and 34-37 TD-INT throughout his eight-year tenure, yielding a career record of 13-21 as a starter.

Denver finished last in the AFC West with a record of 7-10 last season. However, it wasn’t all bad for the Broncos, as they posted a sturdy 7-6 record in matchups QB Teddy Bridgewater fully participated in; and their defense finished the year ranked second in points allowed and ninth in total yardage (18.9 PPG, 326 YPG). This was already a solid Broncos squad before the addition of Wilson, and they should ultimately soar to new heights with an elite QB under-center this season. So, I’ll back Wilson to take care of business against his former squad rather handedly on Monday night.

Jerry Jeudy has been very inconsistent since getting selected by Denver in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, considering he averaged 53.5 YPG on 3.3 REC during his rookie campaign with Drew Lock under-center (16 G); and last season, he averaged just 46.7 YPG on 3.8 REC with Bridgewater at the helm (10 G). Jeudy battled a lingering ankle injury for most of last season, so his numbers were a bit all over the place.

However, consistency was rarely an issue during his rookie campaign, as Jeudy racked up 55+ receiving yards in seven of his first nine NFL games. Last season might have been a down year for Jeudy, relatively speaking, but he still flashed his excellence a decent amount for a “down year,” as he tallied 69+ receiving yards in four of the ten contests that he participated in. So, I’ll back Jeudy to have at least 55 receiving yards, on Monday night, as he should ultimately improve by leaps and bounds with a much better QB under-center for Denver.

The Broncos’ defense typically isn’t a “sack machine”, considering Denver brought down opposing QBs for just 2.1 sacks per game last season, which ranked 18th in the league in that department, despite ranking near the top of the charts in scoring and yardage allowed (18.9 PPG, 326 YPG). However, Seattle’s O-line was terrible last year, as the Seahawks allowed three sacks or more in 10-of-17 regular-season matchups, which includes a whopping 4.3 sacks per game across the three contests Geno started.

Three sacks for the Broncos might feel like its lacking precedent at -150, but I still think they’ll eclipse that number on Monday night after Seattle allowed 3+ sacks in eight of its first ten matchups last season.
