NFL schedule release: Here’s when Russell Wilson returns to Seattle

Russell Wilson will start his first season with a new team in a very familiar place on Monday Football Night.

The release of the NFL schedule is giving fans a trailer for the upcoming season. While the game still needs to be played — and won’t be played for four months — the release of the schedule acts like a movie trailer to hype any blockbuster we’re all looking forward to.

Fans won’t have to wait long to see the first big blockbuster event of the season.

According to Denver beat author Viclon Bardi, the Broncos will kick off the season with a Monday night football game against the Seahawks in Seattle. That means Russell Wilson will start the season that ended last season, but he’ll be on the other side for the first time ever.

Wilson’s return to Seattle wasn’t the only notable debut. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will be in the booth for their first Monday Night Football live broadcast. This will be the first time the duo has assembled a game outside of FOX after ESPN poached them in their own blockbuster trade in the offseason.

Of course, another notable return is Drewlock against his old club. But, in the context of all the other pomp and circumstance that will be on show in Seattle during the first week, let’s not pretend this is just a footnote.
