Here is all you need to know about watching or listening or streaming the Seattle Seahawks in week one of 2020.
The Seattle Seahawks will play the Atlanta Falcons in week one of the 2020 season. Seattle will travel to Atlanta. There have been no preseason games in 2020, of course, so it will be interesting to see how rusty or fresh or rusty fresh the teams are. Both Seattle and Atlanta have seasoned quarterbacks who won’t need a lot of time to adjust to in-game action. So who wins and who loses might simply come down to who shakes off the rust first.
The Atlanta Falcons went 6-2 down the stretch in 2019 with basically the same core group of players they have this season. Atlanta missed the playoffs last year. The Seahawks went 4-4 in their last eight games of 2019 and made the playoffs. But Seattle has added Jamal Adams on defense.
Of course, 2020 is a completely different season and no one knows exactly what to expect. Teams have been tackling each other and so to hit another team’s players will be odd. And refreshing.
Will there be more injuries than normal to start 2020 due to teams not having preseason games? Possibly. But hopefully, Seattle and the Falcons will remain healthy and Seattle will win. In fact, hopefully, Seattle will win every single game, including the Super Bowl. This is all we 12s can hope for and wish for.
