Seahawks Vs. Broncos: Denver Takes 7-3 Lead On Willis McGahee TD Run

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 Seahawks held a 3-0 lead for a good portion of the quarter, but a late drive by the Broncos ended with Willis McGahee punching the ball into the end zone with no time left on the clock.

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.
