What's the biggest Super Bowl comeback in history?

SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

The Denver Broncos trail the Seattle Seahawks 22-0 at the end of one half, and have looked rather awful thus far. The Broncos opened as three point favorites, but they have looked like a decided underdog. And the past does not bode well for their second half chances.

Through the first 47 Super Bowls, the biggest comeback to win a Super Bowl is ten points. The Washington Redskins came back from a 10-0 deficit to defeat the Denver Broncos 42-10 in Super Bowl XXII. The New Orleans Saints came back from a 10-0 deficit as well, to defeat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV. Last season, the San Francisco 49ers were down by 22 points as well, and almost came back. They cut the lead to 31-29 before losing 34-31.

Peyton Manning has struggled thus far, and will need to make some serious adjustments against the Seahawks pass rush. While the Legion of Boom is the most well-known part of this defense, the pass rush has been doing the most damage.
