Broncos vs. Seahawks: 8 Takeaways from Denver's 43-8 Loss to Seattle
Matt Slocum/Associated Press

The Denver Broncos fell to the Seattle Seahawks, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII.

This was never a game—it was over from the very beginning.

The first offensive play of the game was a sign of what to expect for the rest of the evening. A snap out of the shotgun formation resulted in a safety and a 2-0 lead for the Seahawks 12 seconds into the contest. The Broncos would never recover.

There was nothing positive to draw from this loss for the Broncos. They were dominated in every facet of the game. The 35-point deficit does not exemplify just how much of a dominating effort the Seahawks put forth in Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Broncos turned the football over four times and had just 11 total yards in the first quarter. They didn't score until the third quarter came to a close.

It was Denver's fifth loss out of seven appearances in the Super Bowl.
