Late score leads Broncos over Seahawks

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Brock Osweiler's 34-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Norwood in the fourth quarter gave the Denver Broncos the lead in a 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.

Both teams started their preseason schedule just over six months after Seattle routed Denver for its first Super Bowl title.

The game was delayed for 45 minutes because of lightning with 1:30 remaining in the first quarter after Ronnie Hillman's 1-yard touchdown gave the Broncos a 7-0 lead.

That came at the end of Peyton Manning's second and final series for Denver. The five-time NFL MVP was sharp, completing 10 of his 13 passes for 78 yards.

It was a better start than Manning had Feb. 2, when the Seahawks scored the fastest points ever in a Super Bowl after a snap sailed over Manning's head and into the end zone 12 seconds into the game, sparking the 43-8 win.

Terrelle Pryor, acquired from Oakland in April, led the Seahawks to the Denver 3-yard line in the final minutes of the game but was intercepted in the end zone by linebacker Steven Johnson.

Pryor passed for 137 yards. Starter Russell Wilson completed four of his six passes for 37 yards and led Seattle to a touchdown on its second possession, Christine Michael's 1-yard score in the second quarter.

Steven Hauschka kicked three field goals for the Seahawks, including two of at least 40 yards. Kapri Bibbs ran for a touchdown for Denver and Broncos star Demaryius Thomas led all players with 52 yards receiving on five catches.

Second-year Broncos running back C.J. Anderson left the game and was diagnosed with a concussion and cornerback A.J. Jefferson (ankle) was banged up for the Seahawks.
