The second preseason game of 2021 for both the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will take place on Saturday.
In 2019, Denver was 1-3 (2-3 counting the Hall of Fame game) in the preseason and Seattle was 3-1. The Broncos finished that season 7-9 and the Seahawks finished 11-5. In 2020, Denver ended up an unimpressive 5-11 while Seattle was a much better 12-4.
The Broncos won their last game 33-6 over the Vikings. QB Drew Lock had an impressive performance going 5 of 7 for 151 yards and two TDs. One of those TDs was an 80-yard touchdown on a coverage breakdown, but the stats are good, nonetheless.
CB Patrick Surtain II was excellent in his first showing since being drafted. This looks to be a big improvement for a Broncos defense that is already pretty good.
We will likely see QB Teddy Bridgewater get some playing time to give clarity on who will get the starting role. Both are decent QBs and they’ll be playing hard so this will be the main advantage for the Broncos in the game.
According to Football Insiders’ DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average), the team ranked 29th in the league in 2020. This is a measurement of successful plays considering both total yards and yards towards a first down, with extra “points” awarded for big plays.
There is an offensive and defensive component to the stat. The Broncos were 30th in offense and 13th in defense.
The Broncos put a lot of points on the board last game, but they were playing against almost no starters on the Vikings. Seattle should be playing starters so this will be a much better test. Offense is what they were lacking last season so we will see what they’re made of in this one.
The Seahawks lost 20-7 to the Raiders in their last preseason game, but we shouldn’t take too much away from that loss since almost no starters played for Seattle.
There were some positives from the loss. WR Zay Jones looked good early and DL Rasheem Green looks like he’ll help a defensive line that wasn’t great last year.
In 2020, Seattle ranked 5th overall in DVOA (6th in offensive, 16th in defensive).
We might see QB Russell Wilson make his preseason debut in this game, although he will likely be limited. QB Geno Smith is apparently cleared to play after a concussion, but he’s a toss up as well.
The Seahawks will need to look further down the depth chart for QB. If the starters in the rest of the offense get reasonable playing time, things will be fine.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Seattle Seahawks +5
The Seahawks are the bet in this matchup. Home underdogs are profitable in the preseason and having Pete Carroll as a coach (35-17 ATS in preseason) helps as well, despite the question marks at QB.
