Final: Broncos 23, Seahawks 20

The Denver Broncos handled Seattle 23-20 tonight at Sports Authority stadium.

Broncos backup kicker Steven Hauschka kicked a 51-yard field goal as time expired to win it for Denver.

Check out the sad totals here.

Seattle managed just 53 yards and two first downs against Denver's first-unit defense.

The Seahawks rushed for just 18 yards with Denver's first-unit offense on the field.

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson finished 13 of 22 for 93 yards. He was sacked five times, as Seattle offensive tackles Tyler Polumbus and James Carpenter had no answer for Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil repeatedly coming off the edge.

And receiver Sidney Rice has yet to show us much. He has just four catches for 22 yards in exhibition play.

Doug Baldwin's 105-yard kick return for a score was the highlight for Seattle.

So here's a couple questions to chew on as I head downstairs to the locker room.

1. How much blame do you put on the offensive line, and how much on Tarvaris Jackson for Seattle's struggles on offense?

2. Did Doug Baldwin seal a spot on the final roster by his play tonight?

3. What are your thoughts on how the first-team defense played tonight?

4. How much should the first-unit offense play in the final regular season game against Oakland next week?
