What was thought to be one of the greatest match-ups in Super Bowl history turned out to be a one-sided match.  The Seattle Seahawks destroyed the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.

The big headline was: the best defense (Seattle) versus the best offense (Denver) in the NFL, but the Bronco’s offense was nowhere to be found. 

Seattle came into the game well prepared; the first snap of the game told the whole story as the snap went past Denver’s quarterback Peyton Manning for a safety.  Manning never looked comfortable against a defense that forced turnovers, was faster and a bit smarter than its opponent. 

The first play of the second half sealed the deal, Seattle scored a touchdown in the first :12 seconds of the third quarter, Percy Harvin ran 87 yard for on a kick off return.

Seattle was ahead 36-0 before the Broncos scored their first touchdown in the third quarter of the game.

Seattle’s head coach Pete Carroll won his first Super Bowl in the NFL after having coached the Jets and the Patriots and being fired from both teams.  Carroll won two national titles at Southern California as the head coach the Trojans.

Manning finished the night completing 34 passes on 49 attempts, one touchdown and was intercepted twice.  One of the interceptions was returned for a 69 yard Seahawks touchdown.

Seattle’s quarterback Russell Wilson completed 18 of 25 passes for 206 yard and two touchdowns. 

The Seahawk’s defense lived up to the hype as they forced four turnovers during the game.

Seattle will take home its first Lombardi Trophy in the history of the franchise.  Denver has 2 two Super Bowls in 7 attempts. 

The Seahawks left no doubt on the field of who the best team in the NFL is, simply the best, simply Super Bowl Champs.
