Broncos see quiet, steady progress in Seattle

SEATTLE – With all the drama that has surrounded the Broncos the past seven months, they could use some run-of-the-mill football from time to time.

And Saturday night they got just that from their starters.

All in all, the trip to Seattle was a fairly quiet evening on both sides of the ball for the regulars.


Playing into the third quarter, Orton threw for 177 yards in the opening half – he finished with 182 – and the Broncos scored twice in their first two possessions.

He hit 17 of his first 20 attempts, playing out of the shotgun the majority of the time. Things unraveled a bit when the Broncos tried to go to a no-huddle look late in the second quarter and had trouble getting organized – they used their third timeout with 7 minutes, 27 seconds left in the half.
