Nobody can deny that the Seahawks completely owned Super Bowl XLVIII.

Seattle’s immovable defense completely stopped Denver’s “unstoppable” offense, as the Seahawks destroyed the Broncos in a 43-8 Super Bowl XLVIII blowout.

After the Seahawks created a strong 22-0 halftime lead, wide receiver Percy Harvin returned the kickoff to start off the third quarter with an 87-yard touchdown.

Seahawks quarterback Russel Wilson completed 18 of 25 passes for 206 yards and 2 touchdowns, while 5-time MVP Peyton Manning finished 34 of 49 for 280 yards with 1 touchdown.

Despite a decent performance, Manning was shut down twice in the first half by linebacker Malcolm Smith, who returned one for 69 yards for a touchdown. “They played better than we did,” said Manning. “I’ve worked hard to get to this point, overcame a lot of obstacles to be here. But to finish this way is very disappointing. It’s not an easy pill to swallow.”
