After a safety to start the game, Denver quickly fell behind the Seahawks 5-0. The next drive didn't go much better for the Broncos. Knowshon Moreno started the drive off with a 3-yard run. Then Peyton Manning hit Demaryius Thomas on a crossing route but he only made it 2 yards before Kam Chancellor stopped him dead in his tracks with a huge hit to remind the Denver pass-catchers that they're called the "Legion of Boom" for a reason.
On third down, Manning hit Julius Thomas on a short pass but the tight end failed to get the ball past the first-down marker.
On two drives, the Broncos have gained only 8 total yards and have been forced into a safety. The Seahawks defense has been flying to the football and giving the Broncos little room to work with after the catch.
