Denver Broncos vs. Seattle SeahawkS

The Denver Broncos were clearly feeling the effects of not playing starters in preseason on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks. It would seem that the Broncos would benefit from a good dose of caffeine.

Despite mental errors, penalties, and turnovers, Broncos Country's hopes were dashed in the first game of the season. Further complicating matters, the Seahawks played more physically and with a higher sense of urgency.

It's a credit to the Broncos that they fought until the end in their 17-16 loss. What was the most important takeaway from Monday night's game?  It's about playing good football all four quarters to win in the NFL.
