T.O. gets the start, drops long touchdown pass

Surprisingly, receiver Terrell Owens started for the Seahawks in their Saturday night preseason game in Denver.

Owens rewarded coach Pete Carroll for the show of faith by dropping what would have been a 46-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Flynn.

Running a deep post pattern on a play-action fake, Owens was open for an over-the-shoulder grab.  And the rainbow from Flynn dropped right over T.O.’s shoulder — and right through his hands.

Owens has no receptions for the game.
