Former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was booed and punched on his return to Seattle as the Denver Broncos lost 17-16 on Monday Night Football, ending the first week of the 2022 NFL season.

Wilson, who recently signed a five-year, $245 million deal with the Broncos, was greeted by huge Seattle crowds every time he took the field. Despite this, the quarterback played well, completing 29 of 42 passes for 340 yards and touchdowns.

But in the end, Denver had to pay the price for its inefficiency in the red zone, with running backs Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams playing the play on Seattle’s goal line, with the Broncos seemingly on the verge of scoring a touchdown. Kicker Brandon McManus also missed a 64-yard field goal with 20 seconds left in the Seahawks game.

Seahawks quarterback Jeno Smith threw two first-half touchdowns on the night, going 23-for-28 for 195 yards. Although he was 17 of 18 for 164 yards in the first half, Seattle didn’t score in the second. However, Denver failed to materialize, adding just three points to its tally after the break.

At the end of the game, there will be questions about the management of the game by new Denver head coach Nathaniel Hackett. The Broncos, facing fourth and fifth at the Seattle 46-yard line and with three timeouts remaining, ran for considerable time before deciding to have McManus attempt a long field goal rather than give Wilson a chance to do so. room down.
