Broncos break Seahawks early in 31-14 win

Published on September 19, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

The Seahawks turned the ball over three times in the first half – including two Matt Hasselbeck interceptions – in spotting Denver a 17-0 halftime lead, a margin the Broncos maintained in putting away Seattle, 31-14, today at Invesco Field.

The Seahawks finally got on the board on their first possession of the second half, following a 63-yard Golden Tate punt return. Hasselback passed 11 yards to Ben Obamanu to cut the margin to 17-7.

But Denver came right back with a 10-play, 80-yard drive. Knowshon Moreno scored from the 1 to lift the Broncos lead back to 17 points.

The Seahawks got into position to score again when Hasselbeck and Tate hooked up on a 52-yard pass-and-run that took the ball to the Denver 28. But Seattle turned the ball over on downs.

The Broncos then put together another 80-yard scoring march, this one in 14 plays, capped by Orton’s 21-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas. That made it 31-7 with about 10 minutes to play.

Seattle’s second score came on Hasselbeck’s 20-yard scramble, completing an 80-yard, eight-play Seahawks drive that reduced the margin to 31-14 with about six minutes left.

The Seahawks offense sputtered with three first-half turnovers, including the two Hasselbeck interceptions, and the Broncos took advantage to take a 17-0 lead into halftime.

The Seahawks took the opening kickoff and drove to first-and-goal at the Denver 6. But on the second play after a holding penalty on Seattle nullified a touchdown run by Justin Forsett, Denver’s Champ Bailey intercepted a Hasselbeck pass at the Denver 4, ending the threat.

Seattle’s second first-quarter turnover came on a a muffed punt by Walter Thurmond. The Broncos drove 48 yards in 11 plays after that, scoring on Kyle Orton’s 13-yard pass to Eddie Royal for a 7-0 Denver lead.

After a Seahawks punt, the Broncos put together a 10-play, 81-yard scoring drive. Correll Buckhalter covered the final yard for the touchdown that put Denver up 14-0 with 10:30 left in the half.

Hasselbeck was picked off again after the Seahawks drove from their own 20 in eight plays to a first down at the Denver 28. Hasselbeck’s pass intended for tight end John Carlson was intercepted by Brian Dawkins at the Denver 9.

The Broncos had a chance to go up three touchdowns when they moved 94 yards in 16 plays to inside the Seahawks 10. But the Seattle defense held and Denver settled for a 20-yard Matt Prater field goal in the closing seconds of the half to hike its lead to 17-0.
