Seahawks cornerback Tharold Simon was disqualified after striking Broncos tight end Gerell Robinson in the helmet following a third-quarter touchdown run by Kapri Bibbs. Broncos and Seahawks players jawed at each other after the score, but the flags flew when Simon made contact with Robinson. The Seahawks were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Peyton Manning played in two series and was business as usual, completing 10-of-13 passes for 78 yards. Russell Wilson also led a touchdown drive, aided by five Broncos penalties. The teams combined for 25 penalties for 226 yards. It was a grim, extended affair lengthened by a lightning delay in the first quarter.
Both teams escaped the game without serious injuries to a starter.
