Seahawks Rout Broncos In Super Bowl XLVIII
Super Bowl XLVIII was over as soon as the Denver Broncos took their first offensive snap.
Peyton Manning saw the snap sail over his head into the end zone for a safety and it started an onslaught for the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle never looked back after the opening safety and posted a 43-8 win at MetLife Stadium.
The Seahawks forced four turnovers and rattled Manning all game long. Manning finished 34-of-49 for 280 yards and a touchdown but had three turnovers.
Russell Wilson threw for 206 yards and two scores for the Seahawks as the franchise won its first ever championship.
Malcolm Smith’s 69-yard interception return for a score gave Seattle a 22-0 lead at the half. Percy Harvin then essentially put the game away as he returned the second half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown.
