DenverBroncos-Logo 3Seattle, Wash — The Denver Broncos lost an overtime battle to the Seattle Seahawks here Sunday 26-20.
Unable to launch their running game against the Hawks in the first half, Broncos settled for a field goal after the Hawks drew first blood with a 20-yard field goal by Steve Hauschka following a trick play using quarterback Russell Wilson as a receiver on a pass from Jermaine Kearse. Score at the end of the quarter was 3-3.

When both teams came out for the second half the Bronco defense succeeded in sending the Hawks to punt out city. Unfortunately the Bronco offense got caught in the same punt out city syndrome.
Then the fourth quarter turned into a wild horse race as the Broncos managed to pull themselves out of punt out city after a missed Seahawk 46-yard field goal. The Broncos picked up a safety forced by DeMarcus Ware to make the score Hawks 17 Broncos 5. Then on the next Seahawk possession Bronco Chris Harris intercepted a Wilson pass and runs it back to the 19 yard line, and with some help from Demaryius Thomas and Montee Ball, Julius Thomas scores a touchdown to make the score 17-12 with the PAT.
Then after a visit to punt out city the Seahawks pay Bronco quarterback Peyton Manning back with an interception and 51-yard return that results in a 28-yard field goal for Hauschka to make the score 20-12.
Then with seconds on the play clock Peyton Manning roared down the field to score a touchdown and a game tieing two point conversion by Demaryius Thomas. Jacob Tamme scored the touchdown. Game tied 20-20 at the end of regulation play.
The die was cast when the Seahawks won the coin toss for overtime and marched down the field on short unstoppable runs powered by Wilson’s legs to a game winning touchdown by Marshawn Lynch. Seahawks beat the Broncos in overtime 26-20.
Both teams get a bye week, and the Broncos with a 2-1 season play the Arizona Cardinals Oct. 5 at Denver. The Cardinals are 3-0 after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 23-14 Sunday, and the New York Giants 35-14 and the San Diego Chargers 18-17 in the two weeks before.
