After being on top of the NFL all year long, the Seattle Seahawks defeated their strongest opponents, 43-8, to take the Super Bowl title on Feb. 2.
The number one defense versus the number one offense — the Seattle Seahawks versus the Denver Broncos. The two best teams in the NFL came face-to-face for Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 and after a dominant showing, the Seattle Seahawks triumphed 43-8.
Seattle Seahawks Get Out To A Big Lead
The Seahawks got off to a good start, thanks to the help of a wild Broncos snap that yielded a safety. And they didn’t look back — going into halftime, Seattle was firmly in the lead, up 22-0. The team in navy and green pulled out to a 36-point lead before the Broncos even got on the board.
So what was supposed to be a close, even game, seemed like a total blowout halfway through.
All Seahawks, All The Time
And Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ halftime show didn’t do much to turn the tides. Receiving the opening second half kickoff, the Seahawks’ Percy Harvin took it back for a touchdown. And about ten seconds into the second half, the game was already over.
The Seahawks added 14 more points, but what they did on defense was even more impressive. The Broncos were held to 8 points, an amazingly low score for a team that was historically good on offense.
Welp, that was pretty uneventful. But congrats to the Seattle Seahawks — they clearly deserve it.
