Bring on the Seahawks!

The starting players will only be in for a series or two. But bring on the Seahawks!

The Broncos' four-game preseason schedule has been announced, and it starts with — gulp! — a rematch of Super Bowl XLVIII. Seattle blistered Denver 43-8 in the Super Bowl that was played Feb. 2 in East Rutherford, N.J.

The last game of the 2013 season pits the same two teams in Week 1 of the 2014 preseason. The Broncos will play the Seattle Seahawks at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in the practice game sometime between Aug. 7-10.

The two teams will also meet in the regular season, although the preseason schedule lines up in a way that it's doubtful the Broncos and Seahawks would open the NFL regular season on Thursday night, Sept. 4 at Seattle.
