JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- The Seattle Seahawks were focused on turnovers -- creating them on defence and not making them on offence -- at Super Bowl practice Thursday.

It was "Turnover Thursday" for Pete Carroll's team, an approach that has worked well for the Seahawks this season. Seattle's stingy defence led the NFL with 39 takeaways, a fact Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are well aware of.

Quarterback Russell Wilson prefers to call the 90-minute session "No-Turnover Thursday" for the offence, which doesn't want to give the Broncos any extra opportunities with fumbles or interceptions.

"Turnover Thursday" followed "Competition Wednesday," a game-like practice session in which the Seahawks run a live scrimmage that includes a play clock.
