I was prepared for this weeks preseason game. I found a friend who had the NFL Channel, grabbed a bag of Tim’s Jalapeno Chips, and a 6-pack. Then, disaster happened. No, I am not referring to the devastating loss that ensued, though that is almost as terrible. We started watching the game, flipped the channel during commercial, and when we flipped back, it said that game wasn’t available in our area. Since the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks are the closest teams to Montana, I have no idea what they were talking about. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I got updates at the end of each quarter. Let me break down this train wreck for you. I got an update at the end of the first quarter, Seahawks-17, Broncos-7. The one touchdown was scored by Wes Welker on an 11-yard pass from Peyton Manning. Second quarter, Ronnie Hillman fumbles on the way into the end zone, allowing the Seahawks to make a 106-yard return to score yet again. Not until the fourth quarter did the Broncos see points again, with a Matt Prater field goal. The Broncos had four turnovers in the game, resulting in 17 Seahawk points. “It definitely weighs the heaviest in a game like this,” Quarterback Peyton Manning said. “Any time that leads to points – two 14-point swings on a kick return and fumble recovery that took a total of 20 seconds – those are game-changing plays. They are hard to overcome. We’ll learn from it. Those are correctable mistakes.“ The Broncos lost, 40-10. Another scary moment, or three, was when Champ Bailey and Wes Welker came out of the game with injuries. Welker, his right ankle, which is just a sprain, and Bailey his left foot, which is also just a sprain. The worst of the night was defensive end Derek Wolfe, who just 5-minutes into the game, lay motionless on the field. The team announced that the defensive end was being evaluated for a cervical spine injury. He had movement in all of his extremities. “So far the reports we’ve gotten are positive in the sense that there are no broken bones,” Head Coach John Fox said at halftime. “CT scan was positive and right now we’re waiting on an MRI so, so far all the news is good,” according to denverbroncos.com. Later on, the result of the MRI turned out to be positive as well. Defensive End Derek Wolfe injured in 40-10 loss against Seattle This morning, Wolfe took to Twitter. “Thanks for the prayers everyone, ill be ok and will be back on the field soon #broncosup.”
