The Seattle Seahawks draw Fox's second-ranked crew for their Week 2 game at Denver. Kickoff is at 4:05 p.m. ET.

Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa last worked a Seahawks game in Week 2 of the 2008 season. The assignment for Sunday was made before the Seahawks' 31-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1, but more victories along those lines would make Seattle more attractive to networks.

It's the first time since 2008 that Seattle has drawn one of the two highest-ranked crews. Fox's top-ranked crew featuring Joe Buck worked Seattle's game at Dallas that season, the final game of Walter Jones' career and the last time the Seahawks had real stability at left tackle (pending Russell Okung's return from injury).

CBS has eight crews. Fox has seven. The networks rank their crews, with higher-ranked ones drawing more attractive assignments such as Super Bowls, playoff games and marquee matchups.

Earlier: 2008, 2009.
