The Denver Broncos play their first home preseason game on Saturday when they host the Seattle Seahawks.

Fresh off a 31-3 victory over the Chicago Bears, the Denver Broncos return home to Sports Authority Field at Mile High for a Saturday preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. Peyton Manning already has a day of practice in front of the fans at Mile High under his belt, but this Saturday's game will be real debut for the home crowd.

Manning was 4-of-7 for 44 yards and one interception in his debut against the Chicago Bears. His throws weren't perfect, but we're still waiting to see him in extended action. The damage done to his nerves and the recovery from his neck surgeries is still an ongoing process that will take more time to reveal itself.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, enter this contest looking to establish their starting quarterback. Matt Flynn and rookie Russell WIlson -- a former Colorado Rockies prospect -- each played a half in the team's 27-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans. Both were impressive, though Wilson had the better statistics with 12-of-16 passing for 124 yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception, something Flynn did in his 11-of-13 passing for 71 yards.

Game time: 7:00 p.m. MT
