Flacco, first-team offense solid early in uneven Broncos loss at Seattle


SEATTLE – Joe Flacco and Drew Lock had successful opening drives, but that was about it for the Broncos’ offense in their 22-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night at CenturyLink Field.

Flacco completed three of his four pass attempts for 19 yards in his only possession, which ended with a Brandon McManus 25-yard field goal.

In the second quarter, Lock entered and was 5-of-7 passing for 55 yards and another McManus 25-yard field goal gave the Broncos a 6-0 lead.

But then Paxton Lynch entered the game for Seattle and his productive play, combined with all kinds of Broncos penalties, allowed the Seahawks to rally and then pull away in their preseason opener.
