Sluggish Offensive Performance, Seahawks Lose to 49ers 27-7: Live Game Log – Sports Illustrated

  • September 20, 2022

There might not have been a more surprising result in the NFL in Week 1 than the Seattle Seahawks 17-16 win over Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos. 
The two teams entered the 2022 season with drastically different expectations, as the Seahawks were dubbed one of the worst teams in the NFL and a contender for the first overall pick in the 2023 draft.
Now, though, one week later and spirits are high in Seattle as there is plenty to be confident about. 
Quarterback Geno Smith showed flashes of being a potential quarterback to build around and why Pete Carroll had confidence in him over the offseason. While his stat line wasn't overly flashy, he finished the game completing 23 of 28 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns, doing enough to secure the win. 
Defensively, the Seahawk defense produced a pair of goal-line stands that kept the Broncos out of the end zone, stifling the Denver offense when they absolutely needed to. 
Now, they take on a San Francisco 49ers team, led by quarterback Trey Lance and looking to bounce back from a Week 1 loss to the Chicago Bears. If the Seahawks' defense plays as well as they did against Denver, it could be a long day for Lance.
