A recap of the day’s activities:
The run defense. It has been, in a word, stout. Or perhaps stellar. Or even studly.
After giving up 71 rushing yards to the San Francisco 49ers and old nemesis Frank Gore in their opener, the Seahawks held the Broncos to 65 rushing yards and a 1.7-yard average in Denver on Sunday.
The Seahawks effort against Gore (38 yards on 17 carries) looks even more impressive after he gained 112 on 20 carries against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night; and the Broncos’ Knowshon Moreno had 60 rushing yards on 15 carries in Denver’s opener against Jacksonville Jaguars, but was held to 51 yards on 24 carries by the Seahawks.
