Seahawks Win Super Bowl Rematch in Overtime

Seahawks Win Super Bowl Rematch in Overtime

Jay Drowns/Getty Images(SEATTLE) — Marshawn Lynch scored on a six-yard touchdown run on the first drive in overtime, giving the Seattle Seahawks a 26-20 win over Denver in a rematch of Super Bowl 48.

Lynch capped off an 80-yard drive that denied the Broncos (2-1) a comeback win over the team that beat them for the championship in February.

Peyton Manning led a furious fourth quarter rally, erasing a 14-point deficit with a game-tying touchdown pass to Jacob Tamme with 18 seconds remaining in regulation. A successful two-point conversion knotted the game at 20-20, sending the contest into overtime.

However, Seattle (2-1) ensured a win as Russell Wilson led the team down the field on the opening possession of overtime. Wilson finished the game with 258 passing yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 40 yards.

The Seahawks led 17-3 at halftime as Wilson connected with both Ricardo Lockette and Lynch on touchdown passes in the first half to take the early lead. Lynch was later tackled in the end zone for a safety, sparking the Broncos comeback.

Manning’s day ended with 303 passing yards and two touchdowns but also threw a pick in the fourth quarter.

Broncos Happy to Have Welker Back

Broncos Happy to Have Welker Back

Dustin Bradford/Getty Images(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — The Broncos are happy to have Wes Welker back on the field after the new NFL drug policy deal was announced on Wednesday.

Welker was re-instated just in time for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks after the NFL’s new policy on performance enhancing drugs was passed.

Welker was originally suspended for four games and was not eligible to return until Oct. 6.

“It feels great, it feels great,” Welker said. ” … You really realize how much you miss it.”

Welker continued, “It seemed like every other day, I was kind of going back and forth about whether I was coming back or not.”

Quarterback Peyton Manning is among the players welcoming back Welker on the field. “Good to have Wes back,” he said. “Guys were excited when he walked in the offensive meeting this morning…I know he’s been excited to get back out here.”

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) — Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman still is confident in his abilities after Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen said Sherman was a “normal guy and not a shutdown corner” after their win over Seattle on Sunday.

“You know, when a guy wants his name in the paper, he’s gotta say something crazy,” Sherman said about Allen on Wednesday. “It’s humorous. I guess he wants something to tell his grandkids: ‘Remember the day I caught a couple of balls on Richard Sherman? No touchdowns, but I caught a few.'”

Sherman and the Seahawks are preparing for a Super Bowl rematch against the Broncos on Sunday.

Sherman added that he is still a shutdown cornerback although he isn’t perfect all the time. “I played pretty well,” he continued. “But it’s really funny that two little Chargers say I was exposed. One had 50 yards, and one had 60. It makes you laugh.”

Sherman was referencing Allen, who had five receptions for 55 yards, and Eddie Royal, who had seven receptions for 69 yards, respectively.

The Seahawks signed Sherman to a record four-year deal during the offseason.

ESPN: Welker Suspended 4 Games

Hyoung Chang/Denver Post(NEW YORK) — The NFL has suspended Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker four games for using amphetamines, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

According to ESPN, Welker tested positive in a sample given shortly after the Kentucky Derby. ESPN also reports Welker claims the test was tainted, but his appeal was denied.

Welker caught 73 passes and a career high 10 touchdowns for Denver last season.

The five-time Pro Bowler has played in 154 career regular season games catching 841 passes for 9.358 yards and 48 touchdowns.

Broncos’ Prater Apologizes for Suspension

Broncos’ Prater Apologizes for Suspension

National Football League(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — One day after being suspended by the NFL for violating it’s substance abuse policy, Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater apologized to his friends, teammates, and fans. 

“I’m definitely going to make some changes in my life,” Prater said following Monday’s practice. “Not drink at all or risk doing anything stupid like that [and] keep myself out of certain situations like not go to places where people are drinking.”

“Now I’m going to dedicate myself to working out and getting stronger in the time I have off,” he continued. “I’ll come in here and be here five days a week hitting the weights and I’ll have to kick at a high school field.”

The violation, which is alcohol-related, could have earned Prater a year-long suspension, but it was reduced to just four games. Because of a bye week in Week 4 for Denver, Prater will not be able to compete until a Week 6 matchup with the New York Jets on October 12.

Prater will be allowed to attend team functions and use the weight room, but cannot be on the field or sidelines with the team during his suspension.

Welker Leaves Game with Concussion

Welker Leaves Game with Concussion

Hyoung Chang/Denver Post(DENVER) — Wes Welker missed three games during the 2013 season after suffering a pair of concussions. On Saturday night, the Broncos wide receiver left the game when he sustained another one following a hit from Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger.

“It was determined it was a concussion,” said Denver head coach John Fox. “He’ll go through the protocol. The biggest thing on him is, of course, player safety.”

The hit came late in the second half as the Broncos were driving. Welker caught an 11-yard pass from Peyton Manning on the previous play, and as Manning went back to him on the next snap, Welker went into a slide and Swearinger made the tackle.

Replays showed that as the wideout slid, Swearinger led with his shoulder and forearm, hitting Welker in the head. The safety was assessed a personal foul as Welker got up and walked to the sideline before entering the locker room.

There is no timetable for Welker to return to game action. Denver went on to lose 18-17 to the Texans.
