Next up: Seattle. In Week 2 of the preseason, another event had the eye of Seattle residents: HempFest. (Ironic, no?) Hundreds of residents gathered in a nearby park to celebrate their favorite herb. On the field, Seattle defensive back Brandon Browner was a wrecking ball. Browner won’t play in the Super Bowl, however, having been suspended by the NFL for violating the substance-abuse policy.
Turns out, this was a Super Bowl preview.
The game: Seahawks 40, Broncos 10 (preseason).
The date: Aug. 17.
The site: CenturyLink Stadium, Seattle.
The photos: CenturyLink Stadium, a tribute to the “12s” in the field-level tunnel, John Elway photograph in the press box, quarterback Russell Wilson.
The notable: Champ Bailey left the locker room on crutches. Derek Wolfe was taken off the field in an ambulance. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was still recovering from an ankle injury. Yes, it was that kind of a season.
