First, running back Ronnie Hillman punched it in from one yard out, giving Denver a 7-0 lead with 9:09 remaining in the first quarter. Hillman finished the game with 15 yards on six carries.
Broncos 7, Seahawks 0.
Breakdown: Sometimes in the NFL, touchdowns are really pretty (see the Brock Osweiler throw two GIFs from now). Sometimes in the NFL, it's an ugly mass of sweaty 300-pound men collapsing into one another, with one group of men ever-so-slightly able to push the other mob back. This is one of those touchdowns, with the Broncos' Big Nasties out-nastying the Seahawks'. Ronnie Hillman said he "just fell back" into the end zone thanks to his blockers, and that's a fair statement.
Ryan Clady absolutely destroys Michael Bennett in this play. Actually, Clady destroys Julius Thomas too. No wonder Bennett was holding onto Thomas' helmet for what seemed like a minute after the play completed. After that type of domination I'd be holding for dear life too, to anything I could find.
After a Seahawks field goal and touchdown put them up 10-7 in the second quarter, rookie running back Kapri Bibbs helped Denver take back the lead, scoring from three yards out. (Please pardon the pixelation; video of the run can be found here.)
Broncos 14, Seahawks 10.
Breakdown: Here we see trips right with a single tight end. Watch center Will Montgomery closely. He makes this play happen, doing a terrific job engaging one Seahawks defensive lineman just long enough before taking out a linebacker as well. The rest of the linemen do just enough to give running back Kapri Bibbs an inch; Bibbs makes the most of it, running through the collapsing hole with speed and confidence. This was all Montgomery and Bibbs.
The Ospreys then kicked another field goal, taking a 16-14 lead in the fourth quarter. Undaunted, Brock Osweiler led the team down the field and hit Jordan Norwood on a beautiful 34-yard pass for the game-winning score.
Denver 21, Seattle 16.
Breakdown: Many people criticized Brock Osweiler's interception in the third quarter for his failure to look off the safety. Watch him do exactly that on this 34-yard touchdown to Jordan Palmer, with the Seahawks in (what looks like) a single high safety look.
Osweiler's pocket was collapsing as well, and he threw the football in just over three seconds. This was probably the most impressive play of the third-year quarterback's preseason career.
Denver would go on to win the game, handing Seattle their first preseason loss in over two years. Not exactly "revenge," but we'll take it!
