Sports Illustrated has the wrap-up: Despite employing something of a makeshift unit, the Broncos protected Peyton Manning better than any other O-line guarded any QB in the league. Denver allowed all of 20 sacks in 16 regular-season games, easily the lowest number in the league.

“We are confident in what we can do,” Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril said confidently on Thursday. “We feel like we can definitely rush him. Whenever we get the chance we’re going to try to make it happen.”

Make it happen, they did in a 43-8 win over the Broncos.

Avril came up with one of the most important plays of all up front. The game was still somewhat in the balance at 15-0 in the second quarter when Avril pushed his way into the pocket and hit Peyton Manning’s arm as he went to throw. Manning’s pass attempt fluttered out of his hand and into the arms of Seattle’s Malcolm Smith, who raced back 69 yards for a touchdown — turning the game from an early mismatch into a complete laugher.

Manning took just one sack in the game overall, resulting in a fumble, with 3:50 left to play. He also had little time to set in the pocket and scan the field. That was a focus for Seattle’s aggressive defensive front entering the game: moving Manning off his spots.
