Demaryius Thomas, Peyton Manning Set Super Bowl Records In Broncos’ Loss

Richard Sherman, Clinton McDonald, Peyton ManningSuper Bowl Sunday was a record-setting day for the Denver Broncos, despite their loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Peyton Manning’s 34 completions in Super Bowl XLVIII likely won’t ease any of the pain of losing 43-8, but it does put him in the record books, regardless.

Manning wasn’t the only Bronco to earn a place in history. There were 20 records tied or broken Sunday.
