16. Denver Broncos (2014)
This wasn’t the day the Broncos dreamed of. It wasn’t a major shock that the Seahawks defeated them. However, the manner of the Broncos’ capitulation was appalling. They suffered one of the choke jobs of the decade as Seattle blew them out. The game finished 43-8 as Peyton Manning failed to deliver. It was all about the defense as linebacker Malcolm Turner won the game’s MVP award.
Manning also threw a pair of interceptions. One of these ended in a costly touchdown for the Seahawks. The Broncos expected more from the iconic NFL star. In the end, they waited another year before capturing that elusive ring. Denver didn’t even get on the scoreboard until the third quarter. But they were unable to mount a comeback (via Sky Sports).
