Difficult Denver night doesn't get any better in the fourth quarter

See also

The failed onside kick with which the fourth quarter started pretty much summed up the night of the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The contest was never much of a game, as momentum was in Seattle’s favor all night.

Much like Jermaine Kearse did in the third quarter for the Seattle Seahawks, receiver Doug Baldwin dismissed several would-be Denver Broncos tacklers to march into the end zone.

Manning completed his 33rd pass on the following drive with a seven-yard strike to Wes Welker, setting a new Super Bowl record for completions in a game. He missed the next two, giving the ball back to Seattle on downs.

More of the same would come out of their final drive, as another Denver Broncos fumble would give Seattle the ball once again.

In all, Denver turned the ball over four times, and fumbled on two other occasions but kept possessions.

As was the case in each of their three regular season losses, the Denver Broncos again beat themselves and this time the game was not even close.

Denver lost the game 43-8 and Peyton Manning will have to wait at least one more year to get his second Lombardi Trophy.
