Week 1 NFL picks: Broncos vs. Seahawks.

Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season has a number of revenge games on slate, two of which feature marquee matchups for quarterbacks playing their former teams.

Monday night’s matchup between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks caps the action with Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson’s return to Lumen Field for the first time since the March trade between the two squads.

Denver is favored by 6.5 points, according to Tipico Sportsbook.

For the most part, NFL experts have picked the Broncos to win on the road. However, there are a few outliers.
