DENVER — Broncos players are still stinging from their Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

According to, Broncos players are using the number “35” — the number of points the Broncos lost by in Super Bowl XLVIII — as motivation to get them through offseason workouts.

We had a disappointing loss. But that’s last season. We’re ready to move on.”

Jackson and other players said the “shame” of losing by so much on a national stage is great motivation because humiliation can be infuriating.
