Seahawks 26, Broncos 20: First impressions

Bob Condotta: Other than the last drive in regulation, this was a nice return to form for the Legion of Boom after the uncharacteristic performance in the San Diego heat last week. Kam Chancellor forced a fumble and then intercepted Peyton Manning with a little more than two minutes to go.

Jayson Jenks: The Seahawks’ defense was good in all phases, but perhaps the most important one was this: They held Denver to less than two yards per carry and made the Broncos’ one dimensional. That allowed Seattle’s pass rush to pin its ears back and make Peyton Manning uncomfortable, which they did time and again in the second half.

Jerry Brewer: With a 17-3 lead entering the fourth quarter, the Seahawks should’ve cruised to victory and celebrated another thorough domination of Peyton Manning and Denver’s vaunted offense. Instead, mistakes by both the Seattle offense and defense contributed to a disastrous fourth quarter that nearly ruined a good effort. It was an incomplete effort that leaves plenty of concerns, but when the Seahawks are at their best, they’re still a much superior team.

Larry Stone: Russell Wilson watched the master, Peyton Manning, execute a brilliant game-tying drive at the end of regulation, then pulled off one of his own in overtime to give Seattle the victory.

Percy Allen: A lot of praise will be given to Russell Wilson, who guided the Seahawks on an 80-yard touchdown drive in overtime. However, left tackle Russell Okung showed grit and resolve when he played the second half with a shoulder injury. It was obvious he wasn’’t completely healthy, but he was effective and it was a gutty performance.
