By the time the Denver Broncos got the ball in the second half of the Super Bowl, they were down 29-0 to the Seahawks because Percy Harvin went and returned the opening kick for a touchdown. Adding the special teams element to this blowout seemed unfair at that point.
At the end of the Broncos' first drive of the second half, they still hadn't put any points on the board. Peyton Manning once again moved the ball into Seahawks territory, but the drive stalled out. Manning threw incomplete passes to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker before a failed draw play on third down.
Denver was forced to punt for the second time in the game, still trailing by 29 points. The drive lasted 10 plays but the Broncos only moved the ball 38 yards. Seattle has held Denver to just 156 total yards of offense in the game, intercepting Manning twice.
