Broncos turnover makes shutout a real possibility

Demaryius Thomas AP

It’s not a duck. It’s a goose egg.

It looks like the league’s most dominant offense is on the verge of getting shut out.

Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas turned a nice catch-and-run into another turnover, when Seahawks safety Byron Maxwell punched the ball out, and it was recovered by Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith.

There has never been a shutout in the Super Bowl. The lowest scoring team in Super Bowl history was the Dolphins in a 24-3 loss to the Cowboys in Super Bowl VI.

The Seahawks aren’t even doing much offensively, but they don’t have to. The domination by their entire defense is so complete, so oppressive, that Russell Wilson hasn’t had to do much.

The Seahawks added a touchdown when Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse to push it to 36-0, but the only rooting interest will be seeing if they can hang onto the perfect game.

    Still take Peyton over Eli.

  11. thefiesty1 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:07 PM

    Peyton hasn’t said Omaha once. Too late now.

  12. apkyletexas says: Feb 2, 2014 9:08 PM

    I’m glad Elway could share with Manning how it feels to play a Super Bowl for Denver without Terrell Davis at your side, and without cheating on the salary cap.

  13. doomsdaydefensetx says: Feb 2, 2014 9:08 PM

    Best defense in the NFL.

  14. joelvis72 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:09 PM

    I never would have guessed this scenario in a million years, not even from the 49ers-Chargers and other dubious SB matchups. Unreal.

  15. guachosporlife says: Feb 2, 2014 9:09 PM

    Lamest SB in history…commercials and all.

  16. bucrightoff says: Feb 2, 2014 9:09 PM

    Worst performance in Super Bowl history

  17. hazelmn says: Feb 2, 2014 9:09 PM

    I am going to go ahead and call it: Congrats Seahawks.

    I don’t like your team or your fans, and i hope you lose all of your young players due to no cap space after you signed Percy Harvin. But you won the Super Bowl, I can’t deny that.

  18. trollhammer20 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:09 PM

    Youngest team to ever win a SB.

    And this defense was good enough to do THIS to the most powerful offense in league history.

    Have fun with that, fans of the other 31 teams.

    What a pathetic Super Bowl.

  20. loyalraven says: Feb 2, 2014 9:10 PM

    CHOKE!!!

    Payton Manning is the greatest regular season quarterback of all time and that’s all he is…

    Sad day for greatness #dominated

  21. randomguy9999 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:10 PM

    that last TD the Denver D completely gave up…

    definitely is gonna come down to the wire for the first shutout….

    everyone that would have bet the ranch against Denver being shut out in just the first half, thumbs up

  22. guinsrule says: Feb 2, 2014 9:10 PM

    We now know the name of Seattle’s 12th man…his name is Peyton.

  23. filthymcnasty1 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:10 PM

    The Seahawks have been so dominant tonight that they might have even been able to beat the Packers.

  24. Chris says: Feb 2, 2014 9:10 PM

    Zzzzzzz

  25. rubenxx7 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:11 PM

    I hope they do so it will put to rest Peytons Legacy as only the greatest REGULAR season qb ever

  26. lanman11 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:11 PM

    I still have the weird feeling Tom Brady and The New England Patriots are going to come back and win this thing in the final seconds. Anyone else got that feeling? It’s so strange….

  27. unbridledsexy says: Feb 2, 2014 9:12 PM

    This is complete and utter domination in every phase of football. I havent been this turned on in years

  28. 52lightsxout52 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:12 PM

    not anymore, just threw a TD…

  29. thefirstsmilergrogan says: Feb 2, 2014 9:13 PM

    9:11 denver scores making your prediction one of the shortest in super bowl history…

  30. unitasftw says: Feb 2, 2014 9:13 PM

    Wow. if this was.brady he would.b crying!!

  31. GenXJay says: Feb 2, 2014 9:13 PM

    Terrible game for denver. Unfortunately, seatownballer will continue to spew crap for a year.

  32. bassplucker says: Feb 2, 2014 9:13 PM

    Man the Broncos stink. Embarrassing effort by Manning & Co.

  33. holeinone09 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:14 PM

    Not a fan of either team but didn’t expect this lopsided outcome. For fans of other teams including me, one of the worst SB’s ever to watch. Stupor Bowl.

  34. browns627 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:14 PM

    is everybody loves raymond on tv land yet?

  35. flash1283 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:14 PM

    @JohnDennisWEEI: Sorry Peyton. UNLESS u pull off a miracle, You are NO LONGER in the conversation of the GREATEST.

  36. kkalama1 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:16 PM

    Hahahaha soooo many people were down talking the seahawks, now what!? Lombardi is ours boys

  37. shadeforourbattle says: Feb 2, 2014 9:17 PM

    Where are all of you Bronco’s fans who told those of us who just evaluated the game (I’m a Buc’s fan) that the finesse offense would not beat a nasty and physical defense such as Seattle’s. Just as I write this Wilson throws a TD for Seattle. Ballgame. Wilson has one TD in the game to Seattle and so does Manning. Manning, greatest QB ever, right according to all of you? Those of us who said he wasn’t were all told how ignorant we were. I don’t ever remember Montana losing a Superbowl like this or ever losing any Super Bowl. Maybe you Manning fans can remind me if he has. I can remember Manning losing 2 Super Bowls now. Manning can’t even hold a candle to his own GM when it comes to playing QB.

    BORING! BORING!

  39. rubenxx7 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:20 PM

    Who ever was the one vote of TOm Brady as Nfl Mvp was right

  40. elwaysagenius says: Feb 2, 2014 9:21 PM

    Man Pete knows what chemicals to inject into his players veins to get them fired up for a game

  41. peymax1693 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:23 PM

    I am a Manning fan and I have to admit this loss may have shut the door for him to be called the GOAT.

    That having been said, I don’t think Joe Montana or Johhny Unitas were going to beat this Seahawks team.

    Congrats to Pete Carroll and the entire Seahawks team.

  42. jburk003 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:26 PM

    @Everyone

    Lets just all turn off our TVs so we stop giving the NFL ratings and money. This boring game doesn’t deserve anymore of my time nor attention. Til next year NFL.

    1…2…3 OFF.

  43. bassplucker says: Feb 2, 2014 9:32 PM

    Manning looks like a guy who really needs
    to retire. He’s been awful from the first snap of the game.

  44. scw1993 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:56 PM

    unitasftw says: Feb 2, 2014 9:13 PM

    Wow. if this was.brady he would.b crying!!

    This has nothing to do with Brady….don’t try to deflect this loss. This is on manning.

  45. realdealsteel says: Feb 2, 2014 10:33 PM

    The highest scoring offense in NFL history held to the lowest point total in Super Bowl history??

    Wow. Peyton will never live this down. He’s truly overrated. Championships are not won in the regular season playing against horrible AFC conference defenses.

  46. realdealsteel says: Feb 2, 2014 10:34 PM

    Guess what Billichek will do now in the draft after he sees what the Seahawks defense did to Peyton.

    Pass Rushers galore.

  47. ballboy48 says: Feb 2, 2014 10:40 PM

    I’m so glad Cleveland didn’t wait for Gase! Now we know why the offense was so good this year….Manning, not Gase! And we can see when Manning plays bad, it’s really Manning running the offense. They looked like garbage. When Manning, Decker, and Welker leave Denver, that team will be a mess. Their defense is not good.
