2010 Look Back – Broncos Move to 1-1 with Home Opening 31-14 Win Over Seattle

Today we continue our look back at the 2010 season, and it was happy times for the Broncos in week two, as they got a home opener win over the Seattle Seahawks as Kyle Orton shined.

The Seattle Seahawks, fresh off a win over the San Francisco 49ers last week, entered Denver to take on a Broncos team whcih got embarrassed by the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday. Unfortunately for the Seahawks, Kyle Orton and Demaryius Thomas had other plans for Seattle.

The 2010 version of the Denver Broncos looked a whole lot like a John Elway version of the Broncos as they dominated the Seahawks in total yardage and time of possession while Kyle Orton passed for 307 yards and a pair of touchdowns, allowing Denver to easily dispose of Seattle 31-14.

The Broncos rushed to a 17-0 lead after a dominating first half which included a pair of Broncos takeaways and the debut of Thomas, who caught four passes for 56 yards in a long drive which ended with a 20-yard Matt Prater field goal just before halftime.

Early in the second half, Hasslebeck tossed a 11-yard TD pass to Ben Obomanu, narrowing the Denver lead to 17-7, but a 1-yard TD plunge by Knowshon Moreno put the Broncos up for good 24-7.

Orton had his best game of this season as he went 25-of-35 for 307 yards with two TDs. Matt Hasslebeck didn’t do as well, going 20-of-35 for 233 yards with a TD and three interceptions while rushing for a score.
