EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — All those records, all for naught.

Peyton Manning couldn’t cap the greatest season any NFL quarterback ever had or secure his legacy as the best QB in history because his Denver Broncos came down with a case of the yips Sunday night.

They lost to Seattle in the Super Bowl 43-8 by falling behind right from the start and never recovering.

The bumbling Broncos trailed before Manning ever got his hands on the ball because Manny Ramirez’s bad snap went for a safety 12 seconds into the game.

It only got worse for the league’s most prolific point producers.

Dominated in every way, the Broncos (15-4) trudged through the tunnel trailing 22-0 at halftime, then watched Percy Harvin return the second-half kickoff for a TD.
