Seahawks Vs. Broncos: Red Bryant Deflection Leads To K.J. Wright Interception

There's something especially entertaining about a defensive lineman recording an interception, and while the 323-pound Red Bryant didn't end up catching an interception it was his leap-and-paw that deflected a Peyton Manning pass into the arms of linebacker K.J. Wright.

The interception ended Manning's and the Broncos' second drive of the night following a three-and-out on the opening drive of the game. However, the Seahawks didn't have much more success on their opening drive, with a three-and-out of their own followed by a blocked punt.

Each team found much more of a stride in their subsequent possessions following the interception as Matt Flynn lead an 11-play drive that finished with a field goal before Manning lead an 11-play drive of his own that finished with a 1-yard rushing touchdown for Willis McGahee to close out the first quarter.
