The Seattle Seahawks won their second straight exhibition game, 30-10 over the Denver Broncos tonight.
Matt Flynn struggled in his second straight, finishing 6 of 13 for 31 yards.
But Flynn didn’t get much help.
With starting receivers Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin nursing injuries, Terrell Owens made his first start for the Seahawks and laid an egg. The 38-year-old receiver was targeted five times but finished without a catch. Owens’ poor performance in the first half included a perfectly thrown deep ball by Flynn that slipped through his hands in the back of the end zone.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch got his first action of exhibition play, rushing five times for 32 yards, including a long of 14 yards.
Rookie Russell Wilson started and played the entire second half, completing 10 of 17 passes for 155 yards, and throwing two touchdown passes.
Wilson played mostly against second-and-third-team players on Denver’s defense.
Tarvaris Jackson did not play for a second straight game. Even Josh Portis got in for a series.
The defense was once again solid, forcing three, first-half turnovers against a Peyton Manning-led offense.
