Quarterback Case Keenum overcame three interceptions in his Denver debut to throw for 329 yards and three touchdowns, Von Miller had three sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery and the Broncos beat the Seattle Seahawks 27-24 in Denver on Sunday.

Emmanuel Sanders had 10 catches for 135 yards and a score for the Broncos, who sacked Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson six times.

Wilson passed for 298 yards and three touchdowns but was intercepted twice for the Seahawks, who lost wide receiver Doug Baldwin to a right knee injury in the first half.

The Broncos trailed 24-20 in the fourth quarter but Keenum led them on a seven-play, 75-yard drive. He found Demaryius Thomas just inside the pylon for a 4-yard touchdown that put the Broncos ahead for good.

The Seahawks took the lead on Wilson's 51-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett on the first play of the fourth quarter.

Seattle scored first on its second drive of the day after safety Earl Thomas, who ended his holdout Wednesday, stepped in front of a Keenum pass intended for Demaryius Thomas and returned it to the Denver 15. One play later, Wilson connected with rookie tight end Will Dissly to give the Seahawks a 7-0 lead.

Dissly finished with three catches for 105 yards and the touchdown.

Keenum atoned for the interception on the ensuing drive with a 29-yard score on a pass to rookie running back Phillip Lindsay to tie it at 7-7.

The Seahawks regained the lead early in the second on Sebastian Janikowski's 35-yard field goal, but the Broncos responded again.

Keenum moved the Broncos from their 25-yard line to the Seattle 43, then hit Sanders on a crossing pattern. He ran around two defenders, down the right sideline before doing a somersault into the end zone to give Denver a 14-10 lead.

Brandon McManus extended the lead with a 51-yard field goal to cap a six-play drive for a 17-10 lead with 5:25 left in the second quarter.

Brandon Marshall tied it in the third quarter for Seattle on a 20-yard touchdown grab from Wilson, then McManus nailed a 53-yard field goal to give the Broncos a 20-17 lead with just over two minutes left in the quarter.
