Denver's defense leads Broncos past Seahawks 23-20

DENVER (AP) - Kyle Orton led Denver back from a shaky start with two touchdown drives and the Broncos' defense throttled Tarvaris Jackson in a 23-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday night.

Jeff Reed tied it at 20 with a 53-yard field goal with 1:16 left in regulation, but Tim Tebow had a 19-yard scramble in leading the Broncos downfield for Steven Haushka's 51-yarder as time expired.

The Broncos (2-1) sacked Jackson five times, with Von Miller getting two and Elvis Dumervil 1½. Dumervil missed last season after tearing a chest muscle in training camp shortly after parlaying his 17-sack season into a big contract.

The Broncos sputtered without him and chose Miller out of Texas A&M with the second overall draft pick in April. Miller has three sacks in the preseason.
