Seahawks Dominate On All Fronts In 40-10 Win Over Broncos
The Seahawks used a dizzying array of big plays to blow out the Broncos in the first half and coast to a 40-10 win in front of 67,635.
Topping the list of highlights was a 107-yard kickoff return by Jermaine Kearse and a 106-yard return of a fumble by Brandon Browner (each longer than Seattle’s regular-season records).
Browner also forced a fumble as the Seahawks caused three turnovers in the first half, helping overcome 209 yards by Denver’s Peyton Manning-led offense.
Offensively, the Seahawks rebounded from a sluggish outing in the exhibition opener at San Diego, setting the tone for the game with a 65-yard, 10-play the first time it had the ball, culminating in a 12-yard pass from Russell Wilson to Kearse.
The Seahawks never punted in the first half, and Wilson finished with a quarterback rating of 141.3 in the kind of performance that rekindled memories of the second half of last season when Seattle began to establish itself as a legitimate Super Bowl contender for 2013.
