The Seahawks defense led by Marcus Trufant had two INT’s including one that he ran back 32-yards for a TD, they also sacked Kyle Orton twice.

Denver comes into week two after a week showing in week one against the Jaguars. Rookie QB Tim Tebow made his debut but wasn’t a factor. QB Kyle Orton had a decent debut but it wasn’t enough. He completed 21 of 33 for 295 yards and a TD/INT ratio of 1/1. Starting RB Knowshon Moreno ran for 60 yards with a TD, while WR’s Brandon Lloyd led all receivers with 117 yards and Eddie Royal and Jabar Gaffney added a combined 11 catches for 132 yards and Gaffney’s TD catch.

In non-conference play in the L/2 years, they are 2-6 SU, but have cashed in 5 of 8 ATS. When favored in the L/2 seasons, the Broncos have only managed to churn out an 8-8 SU record & an atrocious 4-12 ATS.
