(SEATTLE) Sept. 21, 2014 – Seahawks fend-off Broncos 26-20 in Super Bowl XLVIII overtime rematch

(SEATTLE) Sept. 21, 2014 –  The Denver Broncos came to Centurylink Field in Seattle on Sept. 21, 2014 with revenge on their minds from the Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 domination of last February’s SuperBowl XLVIII in New York (while I was deployed to the Middle East).  While the Bronocs defeated the Seahawks 21-6 on Aug. 5, 2014 in preseason action earlier this year, this is their first regular season matchup since last season’s championship clash in New York.

 While confident as the defending champions, the Seahawks have shown vulnerabilities early this NFL season with star running back Marshawn “the beast” Lynch being limited by several defenses this year that have limited his ground gains to “small ball” including Lynch being kept to six carries for 36 yards in last week’s Seahawks 21-30 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sept. 14, 2014.

However, the Seahawks won 26-20 in an overtime victory.  On a personal note, it’s good to see the ole Seattle photo gang again (like buddies Matt and Josh pictured below) after being away on-deployment this past year.  More reportage on this Seahawks-Broncos matchup shortly folls!
