The Broncos will open the 2014 NFL Preseason Thursday night in a rematch of last year's Superbowl against the Seahawks.

Peyton Manning played the first 1½ quarters and threw an 11-yard touchdown to Wes Welker in last year's, 40-10, preseason loss.

"Probably no more than first quarter," said Broncos Head Coach John Fox. "We will just have to see how it goes on both sides of the ball. That's pretty typical of the first preseason game, just no more than the first quarter."against Seattle. Manning will start, but is not expected to play significant minutes.

The Seahawks starters are also expected to play "no more than a series," according to Seahawks Head Coach, Pete Carroll.

Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
