Win McNamee

The Seahawks hold a dominant 29-0 lead over the Denver Broncos in the third quarter, as the Seattle special teams decided to get in on the act.

The Seattle Seahawks got the second half started in much the same way they played the first: making the Denver Broncos look silly just 12 seconds into it. Wide receiver Percy Harvin fielded the kickoff in the third quarter, a kick that was meant to bounce and prevent Harvin from running the football back for a touchdown.

So Harvin ran the football back for a touchdown. Twelve seconds into the second half, the Seahawks hold a 29-0 lead over the Broncos. Twelve seconds also marked the Seahawks' first score in the first half, when a snap went flying over Peyton Manning's shoulder for a safety that was a sign of things to come.

The Broncos looked to be putting together an offensive drive that wasn't destined for ruin prior to halftime. They converted on multiple first downs and finally had a drive going, but it ended with a turnover on downs. The Broncos' first several drives ended in a safety, three-and-out, interception and then a pick-six. The following drive almost resulted in a fumble on the kickoff, but finished with the turnover on downs after a failed fourth-down conversion well within field goal range.

And now you have the special teams blunder. The clock is ticking for the Broncos.
