ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Peyton Manning is the only player in this Super Bowl who has won the big game.

He’s also lost one.

So, he knows both the elation of putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy and the anguish of watching it slip through his grasp, and he admonished his Denver Broncos teammates not to cut corners as they prepare to face the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2.

Receiver Eric Decker says the biggest thing Manning has said is to eliminate distractions.
