Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson threw 156 touchdown passes at Lumen Field as the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks. On Monday, night, he threw his first there as a visitor, as quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

While Seattle quarterback Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass on the game’s opening drive, Denver’s first two possessions resulted in a field goal and punt, respectively. On their third possession, Wilson and the Broncos lined up on a third-and-two. Wilson went deep to his left to Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy had blown past cornerback Coby Bryant on the play. Wilson did underthrow the ball, but Jeudy still had no problem getting by safety Josh Jones for the 67-yard touchdown.

Naturally, Wilson’s first touchdown pass in Seattle as a visiting player generated a buzz among football fans.

Indeed, it wasn’t the prettiest pass that Wilson has ever thrown. But when the receiver is that open, it doesn’t have to be. Wilson was heavily booed before the game and when he first took the field on Monday. Naturally, his touchdown did nothing to quiet down the 12s in Seattle.

The long touchdown didn’t seem to bother Smith. He kept his strong first half going, answering Wilson’s bomb with his second touchdown of the night to put the Seahawks back ahead.
