Seahawks overcome Wilson and Broncos

Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes in the first half and Denver tinkered twice at the 1-yard line in the second half as the Seahawks beat the Broncos in the NFL on Monday night.

When Russell Wilson returned to Seattle – this time as Bronco playing with his old team – the Seahawks won 17-16.

Brandon McManus missed a field goal attempt from 64 yards with 20 seconds left to allow the Seahawks to get away with another savage NFL win involving Wilson as quarterback, but this time against the Seattle opposition.

There will be many questions about the handling of Denver manager Nathaniel Hackett’s late game clock and the decisions made in his first game.

Denver faced fourth and fifth at Seattle 46 and there were three timeouts remaining, but the Broncos were out of time for a long time before Hackett called a timeout and decided to have McManus try the long goal on the field.

Football was missing and instead of Wilson leading his 36th career comeback in the fourth quarter or extra time of his career, the Seahawks celebrated to the singing of “Geno! Geno! “

Smith and the Seahawks did very little in attack in the second half, but their first half was pretty good.

Smith threw a 38-yard touchdown to Will Dissly on his first possession of the season and hit Colby Parkinson for a 25-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Smith had 23 of 28 for 195 yards, but in the first half he was 17 of 18 for 164 yards.

Wilson had 29 of 42 for 340 yards and a touchdown. But Denver failed to overcome its inefficiency in the red zone with Melvin Gordon III and Javonte Williams tinkering with broken plays on the Seattle yard line.
