Kam Chancellor and the Seahawks' defense have started off the game on fire.

Kam Chancellor laid a big hit on the Broncos second drive of the game, and on the third drive of the game, he picked off a Peyton Manning pass on third down to give the Seahawks great field position. Manning threw the ball to tight end Julius Thomas but the pass sailed over his head for an easy interception for Chancellor.

We heard so much about the matchup between Manning and the "Legion of Boom" Seattle secondary. So far the Seahawks' defense is dominating this strength-on-strength matchup. Chancellor, who had a huge NFC Championship game, is making the biggest impact in the first quarter.

The Broncos narrowly avoided a turnover on the play before Manning's interception when a Knowshon Moreno fumble was recovered by the offensive line.

Denver now has 11 total yards of offense and zero first downs through three drives. They are losing the game 8-0. Even though the Seahawks have struggled on offense a bit, the Broncos have had no luck for moving the ball on Seattle's top-ranked defense.
