Previewing the Broncos vs. the Seahawks

Calm down! It’s just a game. In fact, it actually means less than most games the Broncos will play this year. In fact, it’s no more important than the Arizona game the week after the bye. In fact, it actually means LESS than that game because it’s more important to win at home. Hey, this game against Seattle is as meaningless as it gets. Except, it’s not. It should be....
