Shelby Harris shades Russell Wilson after Seahawks' win over Broncos (WATCH)

Shelby Harris helped the Seattle Seahawks spoil Russell WIlson's Denver Broncos debut and after the game threw shade at the former Seahawks quarterback. While shooting a promo ahead of the new season, Wilson shouted a catchprase, "Broncos Nation, let's ride!" Harris, who was traded from the Broncos to the Seahawks in a trade package centered around Wilson, decided to throw a little of shade at Wilson after the Seahawks clinched a 17-16 win on Monday Night Football.

After recording three tackles and a quarterback hit, Harris was asked what this game meant for him personally. "All I have to say is, Let's ride,'" Harris responded.

Geno Smith outplayed Wilson

With Wilson gone, the Seahawks turned to veteran quarterback Smith as their starter.

Smith was brilliant on Monday night as he completed 23-of-28 passes for 195 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Smith came out firing as he went 17-of-18 in the first half. After the game, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll had a message for those who doubted Smith going into the new season.

"How about Geno?" Carroll said after the game, per ESPN. "I mean, 17-for-18 in the first half. Who does that? Guys just don't do that. Geno played tonight like he has been playing the whole time we've been practicing.

That's what he has been looking like. He didn't look any different than what he has looked like in practice. That's why we had the belief in him, and that's why he was able to win the job and go out there on Monday Night Football and win the football game."

After spending three seasons as Wilson's backup, Smith has a chance to start football games for the Seahawks. When Smith was asked about Wilson, he noted that he has nothing but love and respect for his former teammate. In Week 2, the Seahawks play the San Francisco 49ers on the road.
