Denver Broncos: Stars from opening victory over Seahawks

Denver Broncos: Stars from opening victory over Seahawks”

The game ended with another interception as the Broncos got the win. I'm fired up for him.

The proof matched their words in Sunday's 27-24 season opening home win over Seattle.

Baldwin limped off the field after spending a minute or two on the field in the first quarter. But Keenum responded with a 4-yard strike to a tiptoeing Thomas, putting the Broncos back on top for good with 11:11 left.

Receiver Demaryius Thomas overcame a shaky beginning (a drop and a penalty) to catch the go-ahead touchdown pass with 11:11 remaining.

Miller was in the Seahawks' backfield seemingly as much as Seattle running back Chris Carson, who was pick-pocketed in the second half as Miller simply snatched the ball out of his hands in one of the best plays of opening weekend.

He's not happy, but he wasn't about to sacrifice a $500,000 game check or leave his teammates without one of their most important defensive leaders. "Nobody got down. We just kept working and playing regardless of the score". "... I realize that, it's something I'm going to fix, something I'll be better at".

In his first comments to reporters since rejoining the team on Wednesday, Thomas said he didn't want to continue his holdout into the regular season and miss out on his game checks worth $500,000 apiece.

He made his return in the Seahawks' Week 1 opener in Denver and played 65 snaps, making five tackles, grabbing an interception and recording two pass breakups despite practicing only for a week. "He really just handled it as well as you could possibly handle it, and so did our players".

Carroll admitted Dickson's distance had him anxious the Seahawks' coverage unit would be stretched so far they would not be able to wrap up the Broncos' returner.

"I still don't like playing against Russell, I mean, running around out there 20 yards, getting everybody exhausted", Miller said after Denver's 18th win its past 19 home openers.

The Broncos had an answer, needing all of seven plays to go 75 yards and tie things up at 7-all. "If we all stick together, we're going to be fine".

So with the game on the line Sunday, Keenum went about the business of cleaning up the mess he helped to make. Of the two returned punts, Denver only managed 9 yards, and the Aussie rookie finished with an impressive - and league leading - debut net average of 57.5 yards. By reporting, Thomas won't miss any game checks - $500,000 per game - and he shores up a defense that saw many of its more prominent players depart in the offseason for a variety of reasons. His third sack on the day shut down the Seahawks and the Broncos' offense then kept itself out of trouble the rest of the way.

"Obviously, not exactly how you draw it up, but man, it doesn't matter how, it matters how many", Keenum said. "Because if we take care of the ball - if I take care of the ball, because those are all on me - we're going to be really, really hard to beat".
