The Super Bowl teams slogged through a preseason opener delayed by lightning and a flurry of flags Thursday night before linebacker Steven Jackson’s end zone interception of Terrelle Pryor’s pass sealed the Denver Broncos’ 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Denver cornerback Chris Harris couldn’t get away from football during the Broncos’ bye, eagerly tuning in to watch the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs face the Buffalo Bills last weekend.
When a defense in the NFL can stuff the run like the Broncos have been doing so far this season, it certainly makes things easier for the secondary.

Two dropped passes. Two fumbles. Three field goals. OK, so Peyton Manning and the Broncos’ offense weren’t exactly flawless.
In their 14th straight regular-season win, the Broncos rolled over the Oakland Raiders 37-21 on Monday night.
It’s hard to imagine what the scoreboard might look like if the Broncos ever do play the perfect game.
The Raiders were eager to see how their retooled offense and revamped defense stood up against the mighty Broncos. The answer on both accounts: not very well.
Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor has seen the scores. Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have put up 40-plus points in their first two games and made offense look easy.
