Seahawks Vs. Broncos Final Score: Seattle's Dominant 2nd Half Leads To 30-10 Victory Over Broncos

The Denver Broncos dropped to 1-1 in the preseason following Saturday night's home loss to the Seattle Seahawks 30-10. The Seahawks scored three touchdowns in the second half to turn a one-point deficit into a 20-point victory.

The Broncos led at halftime, 10-9, on the strength of a Matt Prater field goal and a Willis McGahee touchdown, but that was all the offense the team was able to get with Peyton Manning on the field. Manning was 16-of-23 for 177 yards and two interceptions. The first interception was batted down by a defensive lineman and landed in the hands of K.J. Wright. McGahee led Broncos rushers with 28 yards on eight carries.

After Manning led the team during the first half, Brock Osweiler took over for the remainder of the game ad didn't do much to distinguish himself. He was 5-of-11 for 38 yard. Osweiler's rookie counterpart on Seattle, Russell Wilson, a former Colorado Rockies prospect, threw two touchdown passes when he led the offense during the second half of the game. He connected with Tyrell Sutton for a 34-yard score and Cooper Helfet for an eight-yard score. Wilson was 10-of-17 for 155 yards.

With Seattle's explosive offense in the second half and Denver's lackluster performance, the Seahawks out-gained the Broncos in total yards, 405 to 247.

The Broncos will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Aug. 26, at 2:00 p.m. MT.

Seahawks Vs. Broncos Score Update: Seattle Takes 16-10 Lead

The Seattle Seahawks lead the Denver Broncos, 16-10, after three quarters of play. Seattle running back Kregg Lumpkin capped a 14-play, 80-yard drive with a 16-yard touchdown run.

Rookie quarterbacks took over their respective team's offense at the start of the second half. Second-round draft choice Brock Osweiler is 2-of-4 for 24 yards for the Broncos. Meanwhile, Seattle's Russell Wilson, a third-round selection, is 4-of-8 for 38 yards. He also has rushed three times for 20 yards.

Wilson, unlike Osweiler, is actually competing for the starting quarterback position. His competition is Matt Flynn and he was hardly outstanding in the game. He was 6-of-13 for 31 yards in the first half. Two performed about evenly in the team's first preseason game and are close to doing it this week -- just with weaker production.

Also note, Wilson had been a Colorado Rockies prospect until last summer, when he decided to return to school and commit to football.

Seahawks Vs. Broncos Halftime Score: Denver Leads Seattle, 10-9

The Denver Broncos put a field goal on the board at the end of the second quarter to take a 10-9 lead over the Seattle Seahawks at halftime. However, that was a frustrating scoring drive for the Broncos, as Jacob Tamme dropped a third-down pass that would have been a touchdown.

Peyton Manning played the entire first half and was 16-of-23 for 177 yards. He did throw two interceptions to blemish his night, and on each one the Steve Hauschka wound up kicking a 43-yard field goal. The Seahawks picked up their other field goal after recovering a Lance Ball fumble.

On the Broncos' second-quarter scoring drive, Manning ran the offense in a two-minute drill situation starting with 2:39 left in the half. Manning threw 11 straight passes and completed eight of them. Tamme, who dropped a potential touchdown, did put the team in position for that by picking up 13 yards on the previous pass.

Brandon Stokley is Manning's leading receiver with three catches for 41 yards.

The Denver Broncos lead the Seattle Seahawks, 7-3, after one quarter of play at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Saturday evening.

The Broncos opened the game with the ball in their possession, but they wound up going three-and-out. On the Seahawks' ensuing drive, Broncos safety David Bruton blocked a punt. However, the Broncos failed to capitalize, as Peyton Manning threw an interception while at the nine-yard line. A tipped ball fell into the hands of K.J. Wright.

Former Broncos kicker Steven Hauschka wound up kicking a 43-yard field goal after the turnover for the Seahawks. But then Peyton Manning and Willis McGahee led the team on an 80-yard scoring drive. McGahee picked up 30 yards on the ground and Manning threw for 47 yards. Lance Ball picked up the other three yards.
