Broncos Vs. Seahawks Final Score: Steven Hauschka Hits 51-Yard Field Goal To Deliver Denver 23-20 Victory

The Denver Broncos held off a fourth-quarter charge by the Seattle Seahawks to emerge with a 23-20 victory on Saturday evening. With two seconds left on the clock, head coach John Fox elected to send out Steven Hauschka to attempt the 51-yard field goal. He nailed it for the victory.

The highlight of the fourth quarter, possibly the game, came after Matt Prater kicked a 40-yard field goal. Doug Baldwin returned a kickoff for a 105-yard touchdown. That brought the game to 20-17 in favor of the Broncos. Seattle kicker Jeff Reed connected on a 53-yard field goal to tie the game.

Tim Tebow replaced Kyle Orton in the third quarter and finished the night 6-of-11 for 93 yards. Brady Quinn did not play in the game, but he should appear in the Thursday's contest against the Arizona Cardinals.

Rookie tight end Julius Thomas led all receivers with four receptions for 70 yards while Eddie Royal had 62 yards and Eric Decker finished with 45. Kyle Orton should have plenty of options to choose from during the regular season.

Before the 17-point fourth quarter by the Seahawks, the Broncos defense did a great job shutting the Seahawks defense down. The defense had five sacks, including two from Von Miller and one from Jeremy Jarmon. Elvis Dumervil and Wesley Woodyard accounted for the other two sacks.

Broncos' D.J. Williams Leaves Game With Sprained Elbow

Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams left Saturday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks in the first quarter after a tackle. He has been diagnosed with a sprained right elbow. He is out for the rest of the game.

Williams is the team's starting weak side linebacker. Wesley Woodyard is his backup and entered the game for him, picking up half of a sack (the other half went to Elvis Dumervil). Williams has been a starter for the Broncos since he was drafted in 2004. He has moved around and played all of the linebacker positions, from the strong side, the weak side, the middle, the two middle positions in a 3-4 defense and finally back to the weak side in 2011.

Kyle Orton went 12-of-17 for 144 yards and one interception in the first half. He may come out for the third quarter, possibly just for the first series. Knowshon Moreno broke off a few nice runs and has 46 yards on nine carries. Willis McGahee scored the only touchdown of the game with a two-yard rush early in the second quarter. Rookie tight end Julius Thomas is the leading receiver with three catches for 50 yards. Eric Decker had a key 24-yar reception on the scoring drive.

Kyle Orton is 6-of-8 for 74 yards, but he also threw an interception that ended a promising drive inside the Seahawks' zone. Knowshon Moreno has 39 yards on seven carries, good for over five yards per carry.

Broncos Vs. Seahawks, Preseason Game No. 3: Local Radio, TV Coverage

The Denver Broncos (1-1) are fresh off a 24-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills that saw Brady Quinn serve as the No. 2 quarterback to starter Kyle Orton. This time around, Tim Tebow is expected to be the guy who replaces Orton in the game. This game should also give Broncos fans a better look at the running back tandem of Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee. The latter already showed in the last game that he can be an effective red zone threat, rushing for a touchdown and receiving one as well.

It will be interesting to see how rookie safety Rahim Moore plays after receiving a $20,000 fine for his hit on the Bills' Donald Jones. It probably won't change much since Moore wasn't attempting a dirty hit. It was a football play that was a hard hit. It happens.

The Seahawks (1-1) have their own quarterback issues. Matt Hasselbeck left as a free agent for the Tennessee Titans, which led the Seahawks to go with former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. Receiver Sidney Rice was brought in from Minnesota as well. It's a familiar pairing that could prove workable. Marshawn Lynch is not expected to play in this game for the Seahawks.

Denver: KUSA 9
