The Seattle Seahawks escaped their Monday Night Football game against the Denver Broncos with a one-point victory.
Quarterback Geno Smith did enough to get the win by completing 23 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns.
Rashaad Penny led the rushing attack with 60 yards on 12 carries.
Cody Barton was also a star on defense with eight tackles and a sack.
DeeJay Dallas also had an impressive performance as their return guy, while Jason Myers contributed five points via a field goal and two extra points.
Unfortunately, the victory came at a price as safety Jamal Adams checked out of the game in the second quarter.
The Seahawks went on a blitz before Adams had an abrupt end to his 2022 season opener.
Sadly, as ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter revealed, things are not looking good for him.
Seahawks’ HC Pete Carroll told reporters that safety Jamal Adams suffered “a serious injury” to his quad.

Schefter tweeted, “Seahawks’ HC Pete Carroll told reporters that safety Jamal Adams suffered “a serious injury” to his quad.”
In particular, he injured his left quadriceps tendon.
There is no word yet whether he will miss games this year.
But given the injury’s severity, going on injured reserve is a possibility.
Adams’ Injury History
If he ends up being sidelined in Week 2, it will be the third straight season that Adams will miss games due to injury.
In 2020, he missed two games due to an ankle injury and returned in Week 16.
Last season, he only played 12 games due to a torn labrum he suffered in Week 13.
These injuries are unfortunate developments considering that he did not miss a game during his first two seasons.
Adams will have a few more days before getting cleared or sidelined for Seattle’s Week 2 game against the division rival San Francisco 49ers.
