Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon has already been champing at the bit for another shot at the Seattle Seahawks.

“They are able to laugh now,” Gordon said following his team’s 17-16 loss on Monday night. “I seen Pete Carroll. He was doing his little celebrating on the sideline. Thats cool. Hopefully we are able to meet those boys again, you understand, in the Super Bowl, hopefully. The target is to definitely have the final laugh. They are able to giggle now.”

Their season opener couldn’t have gone much worse for the Broncos.

They lost in Russell Wilson’s go back to Seattle and watched the Lumen Field crowd serenade the Seahawks’ new starting quarterback, Geno Smith.

The type of Denver’s defeat was beyond puzzling aswell.

The offense had all three timeouts with 1: 03 on the clock and a 4th-and-5 on Seattle’s 46-yard line. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett let a lot more than 40 seconds run-down before he called a timeout. He then chosen a go-ahead 64-yard field goal attempt instead of putting the ball in Wilson’s hands to obtain a first down.

The Broncos didn’t dispose of a guaranteed win, but Hackett didn’t put his squad in the very best position ahead away victorious. It leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of everybody involved.

Concerning Gordon’s desire to have a way of measuring revenge, he could need to wait some time.

The Seahawks still have a hard road ahead to help make the playoffs, and Monday exposed some wider problems for the Broncos. Don’t bet on a Denver-Seattle matchup happening at Super Bowl LVII.

The 2024 season may be the Broncos’ next crack at their Week 1 opponent, and that is only because they’re slated to handle off against an NFC West foe. Their next scheduled game contrary to the Seahawks isn’t until 2026.
