Broncos turnover makes shutout a real possibility


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.
