The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet in Week 2 of the preseason with one team trying to determine who its starting quarterback will be while the other hopes to move closer to finalizing a supporting cast. Here’s what to expect in the contest and which players to keep an eye on.

Quarterbacks

The Seahawks won’t risk Russell Wilson in this game. The Broncos still have to make a decision between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater, as both played well in Week 1. Expect both quarterbacks to get work. This competition is likely to come down to the final preseason game, but Lock appears to have the slight edge at the moment.

Running Backs

Javonte Williams should see more work in this game. The Broncos have huge expectations for him and with Melvin Gordon sidelined, Williams is suddenly looking to be the team’s starter. For the Seahawks, DeeJay Dallas continues to impress and should take most of the snaps. Alex Collins could also see more work.

Wide Receivers

K.J. Hamler and Jerry Jeudy are likely to play again given Denver’s need to evaluate the quarterbacks. Courtland Sutton is unlikely to play. The Seahawks are not going to take any chances with D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, so don’t expect to see them on the field.

Tight Ends

Gerald Everett is unlikely to play for Seattle, as is Will Dissly. The Broncos will probably hold Noah Fant out as well, although he has a better chance to play than Seattle’s tight ends.
