The Seattle Seahawks lost their 27th game in a row on Saturday night to the Denver Broncos.
The Seahawks won by a score of 27-8.
The Seahawks, who were led by rookie cornerback Richard Sherman, scored a touchdown on the final play of the game, their first since a 26-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 15, but Denver was unable to score in the second half.
The loss was the fourth consecutive for the Broncos, who have lost five in a span of just seven games.
Sherman, who was the starting cornerback for Seattle, was ejected for a late hit on Broncos running back Devontae Booker.
Booker had seven tackles, a sack and a forced fumble, and returned a fumble 24 yards for a touchdown.
He also had three catches for 49 yards.
“We had some bad turnovers in the first half,” Sherman said.
“We had a couple of bad pass plays.
And then they got the ball back.
We were a little sloppy.”
Bookers second interception came on the Seahawks first play of overtime.
He returned the ensuing kickoff 65 yards for the touchdown.
Sherman’s final interception came when the Seahawks ran out the clock and the clock was running out.
Sherman had three on his first three snaps, and he caught four passes for 53 yards and a touchdown before his first interception.
Denver was coming off a 28-20 win over the New England Patriots in which the Broncos went on to win the AFC West.
After the game on Twitter, Sherman had a bit of a tough time expressing his feelings on the game.
He was in awe of Booker, who had an interception.
“I love Richard Sherman.
I really do.
I feel like he’s the best corner in the NFL,” Booker said.
But when Sherman had his first chance to express his thoughts on the play in the locker room after the game he said he didn’t see it, “I just saw a little bit of the helmet,” he said.
Sherman said he had a hard time being in awe, because he felt Booker had already made his mistake.
He said he was in a good spot and the Broncos were just trying to get a first down.
On Saturday, Booker said Sherman was a good player, but the play did not go well.
He had the ball, but Booker had his hands on Sherman’s shoulder and Sherman had him off balance.
He said he never felt Booker was in control.
