Booed upon arriving on the field at Lumen Field, quarterback Russell Wilson was unable to have the final laugh on his return to Seattle. The Denver Broncos lost 17 to 16 against the Broncos on Monday.
Compromised during the last offseason, the pivot faced his former team to close the first week of activities of the 2022 NFL season, but his strong performances weren't enough. Wilson thus completed 29 of his 42 relays, for 340 yards. He threw his only touchdown pass to receiver Jerry Jeudy, who went for 67 yards on the play.
The Broncos will, however, be able to look to their running backs to explain the loss. Twice the visitors came within yards of the pay zone, but Melvin Gordon lost the ball the first time and then Javonte Williams also lost the oval object the second time.
For the winners, center Geno Smith did well, completing 23 of 28 stints for 195 yards, in addition to finding a receiver in the end zone twice.
