The Seattle Seahawks embarrassed the Denver Broncos at Metlife Stadium winning Super Bowl XLVII 43 to 8.  The 13-3 Seahawks lead wire to wire never letting the best offense in the NFL, lead by Peyton Manning, ever get settled.

The lauded Seattle defense made things difficult for Peyton right from the jump, forcing a safety in the opening minutes, forced him into two interceptions and held him to one passing touchdown.  Second year QB Russell Wilson put up 206 yards and two touch downs for Seattle.  Defense and special teams were the story for Seattle with an impressive kick return in the third quarter by Percy Harvin and an interception return by Malcolm Smith. Smith was also named Super Bowl MVP.

This is the first NFL championship for the Seahawks. The outspoken Richard Sherman was carted off of the field late in the game after sustaining an ankle injury, but seemed ready to celebrate during the post game press conference. Watch below.
