Peyton Manning fails to earn second ring as the Broncos fell 43-8 to the Seahawks.
Manning completed 34 of 49 passes for 280 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a losing effort. The 34 completions are a new Super Bowl record, a bittersweet boobie prize as he and the Broncos were never in the game as the Seahawks scored a safety 12 seconds into the game and never looked back. Manning posted a 24.4 QBR, the lowest this season and the lowest in a Super Bowl game since Rex Grossman's 7.1 in 2006.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Devin Hester (toe) has been cleared to return from injury in Week 13.
Hester has been on short-term IR all year with the toe injury and has finally been cleared to return. Considering the offensive struggles for the Falcons, he may be used as more than just a return man. There's been little help opposite Julio Jones so perhaps Hester will get a crack at some extra snaps. He certainly couldn't do worse than what the team has there right now. Of course, Matt Ryan still has to wake up as well. Analysis: Howard Bender
