The first Monday Night football game of the 2022 season will be Russell Wilson returning to Seattle to take on the Seahawks as the Denver Broncos starting quarterback.
Week 1 has featured a handful of games that featured a quarterback playing their former team. From Carolina Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield playing the Cleveland Browns, to Joe Flacco leading the New York Jets against the Baltimore Ravens. But perhaps the biggest matchup was saved for the final game of the opening week of the 2022 season.
Russell Wilson makes his debut with the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. They will be on the road, facing his former team in the Seattle Seahawks.
Trade rumors have circulated around Wilson in recent years, but the move actually transpired after they traded him to the Broncos in exchange for quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, and multiple draft picks. Prior to the season opener, the Broncos and Wilson agreed to terms on a five-year, $245 million contract extension.
As for the Seahawks, they will not be going with Lock as the starter to face his former team. Rather, head coach Pete Carroll announced immediately following the preseason finale that Geno Smith would be the QB1 to start the season. Smith did start three games for Seattle last year when Wilson was sidelined with a broken finger, and ended up with a 1-2 record.
