Once again the Denver Broncos get another win in the preseason in dominating fashion against the Seattle Seahawks, 30-3. The offense and defense were clicking all night and put another great performance together as a team.
Teddy Bridgewater looked great as he got the start against the Seahawks. He had a nice short field after a Justin Simmons interception that ended up as six points for the Broncos when Bridgewater hit K.J. Hamler for a 2-yard touchdown. Bridgewater had a few nice completions and nice fourth-down conversions when out there.
Drew Lock played well when given his time to play. He bounced back after back-to-back sacks in his first drive, forcing a punt. He then had the opportunity for a 1-minute drill before halftime and got three points before heading into the locker room. He went on to play well for the rest of the game before getting pulled out at the end of the third quarter.
The defense played amazing all night forcing three turnovers and only allowing a field goal. The defensive unit has tremendous depth throughout all positions as they have yet to allow a touchdown in the preseason.
With the second preseason game concluded, here are the top three plays of the game versus the Seahawks.
3. Jonathan Cooper with a vicious strip-sack and DeShawn Williams with the recovery
Jonathan Cooper played amazing all night against the Seahawks and possibly made his stamp on making the 53-man roster.
The defense was in a fourth-and-4 situation in the second quarter leading by 14. With a four-man pressure, the secondary played great coverage and allowed Cooper to make a play on the quarterback. He beats the left tackle and got the strip-sack and DeShawn Williams, who had a great night as well, recovered the fumble and got ran down quickly.
2. DeShawn Williams with a diving INT; Team goes crazy on the sideline
Once again, DeShawn Williams makes another great play on the ball and yes, it’s a big man INT.
On a 3rd-and-10, the Seahawks ran a screenplay for the running back. Williams read the play perfectly and jumped the pass, catching the INT. It was a really impressive play from the nose tackle. The other part of this play being so good is the team on the sideline going crazy. They all ran to the end zone after the INT to celebrate.
This team and defensive unit are going to be really special.
1. Drew Lock with the scramble and flip pass to Seth Williams for a gain of 33
This play is flying under the radar a bit from last night. Maybe if a certain player from the Kansas City Chiefs did this play, maybe it’ll get more recognition but since it’s Drew Lock, it doesn’t get talked about much.
Nonetheless, it was a great play, regardless of who the quarterback is.
On a 3rd-and-3 and needing a first down, it seemed like Lock had no one open during his progressions. As the pocket started to collapse, he rolled out left and flipped out a pass to rookie Seth Williams who then gets into the red zone. Lock did a great job improvising on the play and making something out of nothing.
The Denver Broncos played their second preseason game against the Seahawks Saturday night and the first team defense looked as advertised.
The Broncos will finish their preseason at home against the Los Angeles Rams Saturday night. We may know who QB1 is before the last game but it can also be the last game of the QB battle to determine the starter for Week 1. It’s going to be an interesting week leading up to the last preseason game!
