2014 Super Bowl update: Byron Maxwell forces Broncos fumble; Seahawks still pitching shutout

Ron Antonelli

The Seahawks defense forced its third turnover of the game to keep the shutout alive.

SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

The Broncos are trying to make one of the biggest comebacks in Super Bowl history, and turning the ball over isn't going to help.

For the third time in this game, a Broncos drive ended in a turnover. Demaryius Thomas caught his 11th pass of the game before Byron Maxwell punched the ball free. Malcolm Smith, who returned an interception for a touchdown earlier in the game, recovered the fumble for the Seahawks. Just when it looked like Manning and the Broncos were getting things rolling on offense, another turnover killed their drive.

The Seahawks are still pitching a shutout, and the defense has been the main reason Seattle is up 29-0.
