Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus missed the game-winning 64-yard field goal. Seattle Seahawks It ruined Russell Wilson’s return Monday night.
Wilson had the ball in the final minutes of the game and ran down the game-winning field many times in these moments. However, he failed to gain enough yardage to give McManus a better understanding of his goal on the game-winning field.
With 4 and 5, New Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett Instead of giving Wilson a shot to gain five yards to keep it all going, he decided to go for the second-longest field goal in NFL history.
Despite the distance, the ball continued to leak left and Seattle head coach Pete Carroll celebrated the win on the sidelines. Geno Smith Wilson’s replacement got to his knees and scored an upset victory.
Starting the game for the first time in eight years, Smith had a lot to love. He opened the game with a touchdown drive, giving tight end Will Disley an easy score to make it 7–0.
Smith was very efficient, going 23-for-28 in 195. yards and two touchdowns. He defended the ball without any interceptions.
Wilson went 29-for-42 for 340 yards in the air, but most importantly, the Broncos’ red zone chances were terrible. Simply put, they should have won the game if he had the ball twice at the 1-yard line and once at the 3-yard line.
They didn’t score a touchdown on those occasions.
Both running backs, Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams, fumbled on one and Seattle recovered both. Wilson nearly missed a touchdown after that, but his tight end went out of bounds on the second leg. He failed to find the end zone on the next play.
It was the first time since 1987 that a team had lost two fumbles on the goal line.
Carroll told everyone he believed in his team despite losing Wilson, with the 12s having a rabid Seahawks fanbase who would yell throughout the game for their new quarterback, It upset the old quarterback.
Wilson is still chasing his first victory, and in week two Houston Texans of Denver.
Smith and the Seahawks will head to San Francisco with momentum to look to face the 49ers as well. Chicago Bears in week 1.
