With all the experience, star players, points, and "Class" that the Broncos have. Many Analysts were picking them.

It's 29-0 3 minutes into the 3rd.

This is probably worst then the undefeated Patriots a few years ago. I can't remember any favorites that played this badly, or were just dominated.

Super Bowl III: Baltimore favored by 18 (NY Jets won 16-7).
Super Bowl IV: Minnesota favored by 12 (Kansas City won 23-7).
Super Bowl XVIII: Washington favored by 3 (LA Raiders won 38-9)

But this game, of course, is not over.

May not be the biggest choke by a team, but it certainly locks in Peyton Manning's legacy as the biggest playoff choker of all time. With this defeat, no quarterback has ever lost more playoff games than Peyton. He's now 11-12 in the postseason, with 8 of those 12 losses coming in the first postseason game. 12 losses, 8 of them one and dones - I doubt anyone will ever touch either of those marks.

This loss isn't on Peyton's shoulders. Opening play of the game the center hiked the ball over Peyton's head, special teams gave up a kick off return for a TD, receivers got stripped of the ball, O-line couldn't protect, Denver's D didn't hit Wilson once, etc. Denver got beat in every aspect of the game.

I thought the game would be decided by a touchdown or less going in. Denver did get beat on all sides of the ball, but the offense was completely flat and the worst it was all year. The defense did nearly nothing. This kind of loss will shake the franchise to its core and probably send Manning into retirement.

If one player was all that mattered, Dan Marino would have hands full of rings. Those games weren't lost by Manning alone. How many of those losses came against Tom Brady with defenses better that Peyton ever had?

Payton was looking worried in the 1st quarter. He sat on the bench staring at the ground. I don't follow the broncos much, so I don't know if he always looks worried. It didn't inspire my confidence, so I wonder how it affected his teammates.
