Seahawks spoil Wilson's homecoming with win over Broncos

Russell Wilson got a rude welcome back to Seattle as the Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 17-16 in the NFL Monday nighter. 

Wilson, who was traded to Denver in the off-season after 10 years with the Seahawks, was lustily booed by “the 12th man” as he stepped on Lumen Field for the first time as a visitor. He threw for 340 yards and a touchdown in the loss. 

New Seahawks starter Geno Smith threw for 195 yards and two first-half touchdowns, while the Broncos offense fumbled twice on the one-yard line and Brandon McManus missed a go-ahead 64-yard field goal attempt with 20 seconds left.
