Week one in the NFL comes to a close with Monday Night Football, a broadcast that will feature familiar faces in new places. One of those is quarterback Russell Wilson, who was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos this offseason. In an intriguing scheduling twist, Wilson’s first game in a Broncos uniform will come in his old home stadium, with the two teams playing in Seattle tonight.
Green Bay Packers fans tuning in for tonight’s game may also be intrigued to see how Denver’s offense looks. Former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is now the head coach in Denver and may bring many familiar concepts to the Broncos offense, which features an interesting set of playmakers.
Another set of familiar people in new digs is in the broadcast booth. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman moved over from FOX to ESPN for this year and will call the Monday night games for the four-letter network. Their absence was notable on FOX’s Sunday broadcasts, as Packers-Vikings got the network’s #1 team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen instead of Buck and Aikman.
Here’s your game thread for tonight’s game, along with APC’s picks for this contest.
