The Seattle Seahawks played their best game of the season and totally dominated Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8 on Sunday night in New York.
Seattle scored on the first play from scrimmage. A bad snap over Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s head resulted in a safety for the Seahawks, giving them a quick 2-0 lead. Seattle never looked back from there and cruised to the win.
Peyton Manning threw two interceptions, one was returned for a touchdown by the Seahawks Malcom Smith, who was named Super Bowl XLVIII MVP. Seattle led 22-0 at half time. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes in the second half to pad their lead.
It’s the first ever Super Bowl title for Seattle. Their head coach, Pete Carroll becomes the third coach to win both a Super Bowl Championship and an NCAA Championship. Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer are the only other coaches to accomplish this feat.
