Pass interference sets up Marshawn Lynch touchdown

peyton AP

The Broncos’ defense has held Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch in check for most of the first half of Super Bowl XLVIII. But they couldn’t hold him out of the end zone when he only had half a yard to go.

After a pass interference penalty on Tony Carter gave Seattle first-and-goal at the 1-yard line, the Seahawks handed it off to Lynch twice. On his first carry he got about half a yard, and on the second carry he finally crossed the goal line to put Seattle up 15-0.

Lynch now has nine carries for 12 yards and one touchdown.

The drive was set up by a Kam Chancellor interception of a Peyton Manning pass, and Manning has been a major disappointment, just 24 hours after being named the NFL’s regular-season Most Valuable Player for a record fifth time. The Broncos have now dug themselves a big hole, and they’ll need Manning to play a whole lot better if they’re going to dig out.

    Lol at Denver fans who said drew brees sucked for his games against Seattle. Brees doesn’t have half the weapons megahead does and look what’s happening LOL.

    As Seattle stated many times manning has a record setting scoring offense but he’s never faced a defense this good gassing the pass . Never in his entire career .

  11. cztikhldr4evr says: Feb 2, 2014 7:42 PM

    Well Denver fans,Now you know what we felt for 14 years.

  12. allidoiswin55 says: Feb 2, 2014 7:42 PM

    How many times did we say we could hit manning . But but never happens never will he’s too fast . He has no timing routes to get rid of the ball quickly so therefore more time to get to him . Seattles defensive line is #1 with hurries ..

    Don’t sleep in Russell

  14. coffeeblack95616 says: Feb 2, 2014 7:43 PM

  16. bert1913 says: Feb 2, 2014 7:46 PM

    peyton is the mvp of the regular season, but when the pressure is on him, not so much

  17. rubenxx7 says: Feb 2, 2014 7:46 PM

    lol i thought peyton would only throw 2 ints. he may throw 4 now. He is only the greatest regular season qb PERIOD!!!

  18. 617mrbean says: Feb 2, 2014 7:46 PM

    *superbowl

  19. 2difshoe says: Feb 2, 2014 7:49 PM

    Game over…this is like watching a shark attack but only by Seahawks instead !

  20. keltictim says: Feb 2, 2014 7:51 PM

    The pats running game would have made a big difference. Enough to win? Doubtful. But I think we would have put up a better fight. Def been better prepared.

  21. guachosporlife says: Feb 2, 2014 7:52 PM

    yawn….

    I am with holding all of my comments until after the SB is over. Just because Denver is down now, does not mean that they can not come back. IMHO, I think that Denver is a team that likes to get a big score fast, because they are not noted for being a very much of a team from coming back once they have dug a hole for them selves. Course I have been wrong before and it also would not be the first time or the last time that I could be wrong and YES I ‘am the first one to admit when I am wrong on anything. I’ll eat my crow just as long as I have some cornbread and potatoes to go along with it. I have found out over the years that just crow by its self just doesn’t taste very good at all by its self.

    Like those of us that are learned, defense wins.

  24. apkyletexas says: Feb 2, 2014 7:55 PM

    Pats would have got smoked by these Seattle guys.

    Billy B and Tom Terrific should be very happy they got pounded by Denver, and didn’t have to suffer a historic Super Bowl butt-whipping.

  25. rationalitybias says: Feb 2, 2014 7:55 PM

    This is a joke. (Unless I’m a Seahawks fan).

  26. kkalama1 says: Feb 2, 2014 7:57 PM

    I just wanna know where all these fans are that are saying “manning will shreading us” or “40-10 broncos” seems like a ghost town in here. Seattles D is scary good

  27. metalman5150 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:01 PM

    This Super Bowl sure is turning out to be a display of competitive football teams.
    Thanks NFL Illuminati for getting the most marketable scenario (Peyton in Eli’s house v West Coast representation). This is a crow that I will enjoy.

    John fox.

  29. ketch20too says: Feb 2, 2014 8:05 PM

    Ain’t over. Hawks come down and get 7..I will feel much more secure. Still only 3 score game

  30. granadafan says: Feb 2, 2014 8:13 PM

    Marshawn is a class act. When he scored that TD, there was no dancing, look-at-me stunts, etc. He tossed the ball to the ref, congratulated the big guys for blocking, and then ran off the field.

  31. bugorfeature says: Feb 2, 2014 8:16 PM

    Seattle is getting hurries on Manning, an arm hit while throwing and a deflected pass on 4th down while rushing four.

    Maybe Denver should start running the ball more. :)
