A comedy of second half errors cost the Broncos in their Week 1 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night.

They scored just three points after halftime, thanks to two fumbles on the one-yard line, another failed RedZone attempt and a late missed field goal from Brandon McManus. It was a 64-yarder attempt and Denver’s veteran kicker gave it a good shot, but missed just wide.

Nathaniel Hackett will have a lot of questions to answer, kicking a field goal rather than letting Russell Wilson go for it on fourth down in the final moments.

We’ll have plenty more on what the coach has to say about the team’s brutal 17-16 loss. Denver is now 0-1 on the 2022 season.
