NFL Kickoff 2023: Seahawks will get preview of Detroit Lions offense

The 2023 NFL season will begin tonight as the Detroit Lions matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. While NFL fans will tune in for entertainment purposes, Seahawks defensive coaching staff will likely get a archive film for game planning for the Lions in week 2.

Last season, Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff threw for 4,438 passing yards, 29 touchdowns, and registered a career-high QBR of 99.3.

Despite not making the playoffs, the Lions ranked no. 3 in the NFL in total touchdowns scored. Perhaps this is why many NFL analysts believe they have a chance to pull the upset on the road in Kansas City. Loaded with talent, including rookie running back Jahmyr Gibbs, wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and more, the Lions may be a force to be reckoned with in 2023.

Seahawks defensive passing coordinator Karl Scott and defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt should use film from tonight to begin strategizing a way to stop the Lions offense in week 2.
