The Seahawks will be seeking to prove its opening-day 31-6 blowout of the Niners was no fluke. Matt Hasselbeck made an efficient 18 of 23 passes for 170 yards, with a TD pass to the resurgent WR Deion Branch and formerly anonymous WR Deon Butler. Seattle’s offense committed just one turnover on the afternoon. Defensively, the first game of the Carroll era brought a big play in the form of cornerback Marcus Trufant's 32-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter, as Seattle made life miserable for both quarterback Alex Smith (26-of-45, 225 yards, 2 INT) and running back Frank Gore (17 carries, 38 yards).The trick for the Seahawks will be to continue their first-rate play on the road, where Seattle was just 1-7 SU last year with all seven losses coming by double-digits . The Hawks were outscored, 260-117, away from Qwest Field last season, and their lone road win came at 1-15 St. Louis. Coach Carroll is 2-2 in his career against the Broncos, including 1-0 while with the Jets (1994) and 1-2 with the Patriots (1997-99). The Broncos' Josh McDaniels will be meeting both Carroll and the Seahawks for the first time as a head coach.
The Broncos Week 1 didn't go nearly as well after losing 17-24 in Jacksonville. The Broncos outgained the Jags, 363-299, but had trouble finishing off drives and lost the turnover battle by a 2-0 margin. Kyle Orton made 21 of 33 passes for 295 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the loss, playing the bulk of the game over celebrated rookie backup Tim Tebow. Tebow was in on a few first-half plays against Jacksonville, carrying twice for two yards and also lining up once at wide receiver. The Denver defense, under the tutelage of new coordinator Don Martindale for the first time, allowed Jaguars quarterback David Garrard to complete 16-of-21 for 170 yards with three touchdown passes. A unit missing top pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, who was lost for the year with a torn pectoral suffered in training camp, managed just one sack against Garrard on the afternoon.
