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.
