Former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was booed and beaten on his return to Seattle as his Denver Broncos suffered a 17-16 defeat on Monday Night Football to close out the first week of the 2022 NFL season.

game story

Wilson, who spent the first 10 seasons of his NFL career in Seattle – and won the Super Bowl in 2013, sought a deal from the Seahawks this off-season and eventually joined Denver in March in exchange for a handful of players and a draft pick. the other way.

Wilson, who recently signed a five-year, $245 million contract extension with the Broncos, was greeted with fierce boos every time he entered the field from the famous Seattle home crowd. The quarterback played well, though, completing 29 of 42 passes for 340 yards and touchdowns.

But Denver was eventually paid to pay for its incompetence in the red, with both their backs, Melvin Gordon and Jafonte Williams flailing in cut-off games on the Seattle goal line, and it looked like the Broncos would score. Kicker Brandon McManus also missed a 64-yard field goal attempt 20 seconds left to see the Seahawks hanging.

Seahawks quarterback Jeno Smith threw touchdown passes in the first half of the night, finishing 23 of 28 for 195 yards. Although he was 17 of 18 for 164 yards in the first half, Seattle kept quiet in the second half. However, Denver couldn’t capitalize on that, adding only three points to its points after the break.

There will be questions about managing new Denver coach Nathaniel Hackett’s game late in the game. The Broncos had their fourth and fifth gamers on the Seattle 46-yard streak and with three timeouts remaining, they ran long on the clock before deciding to make McManus attempt a long field goal, rather than giving Wilson the opportunity to go for him fourth down.

And in some troubling news for the Seahawks, Salameh Jamal Adams suffered what coach Pete Carroll said after the game “a serious injury to his left quadriceps tendon”. Adams was knocked off the field after Wilson was nearly sacked in the first quarter, and was eventually driven away on a wagon.

What Wilson said… “I wouldn’t be where I am without this place”

Broncos quarterback, Wilson: “For me, Seattle has been wonderful to me. Anyone who thinks of any other words, don’t know my heart, they don’t know what this city means to me.”

“Tonight was special, it was on the other side of what I’m used to, but it was still a special environment and a place I’ve always loved.”

[On the boos]: “It didn’t bother me, you know, it’s a hostile environment, it always has been, I didn’t expect them to throw a round of applause every now and then.

“I’ve played in some of the biggest games on the planet, and more people are watching it than anywhere else. This was a special game, just because I was able to see some of my best friends and play against them and be around them.

“And to be on the field again, this stadium was special to me. I wouldn’t be where I am today without this place, and so I am grateful for that.”
