The Denver Broncos (1-1) are fresh off a 24-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills that saw Brady Quinn serve as the No. 2 quarterback to starter Kyle Orton. This time around, Tim Tebow is expected to be the guy who replaces Orton in the game. This game should also give Broncos fans a better look at the running back tandem of Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee. The latter already showed in the last game that he can be an effective red zone threat, rushing for a touchdown and receiving one as well.
It will be interesting to see how rookie safety Rahim Moore plays after receiving a $20,000 fine for his hit on the Bills' Donald Jones. It probably won't change much since Moore wasn't attempting a dirty hit. It was a football play that was a hard hit. It happens.
The Seahawks (1-1) have their own quarterback issues. Matt Hasselbeck left as a free agent for the Tennessee Titans, which led the Seahawks to go with former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. Receiver Sidney Rice was brought in from Minnesota as well. It's a familiar pairing that could prove workable. Marshawn Lynch is not expected to play in this game for the Seahawks.
