In a classic Seahawks win, they beat former QB Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos 17-16 in Monday’s season opener. We discuss Kevin’s prediction of a Seahawks win, Wilson’s performance, baffling decision making by Denver coach Nathaniel Hackett and what the game says about Seattle’s chances of winning the NFC West.

Was it their best win of the season?
