When the game starts with an errant snap over your hall of fame QBs head for a safety it can usually be an omen of your night. That is exactly what happened to the Denver Broncos on the games first offensive snap and still, with everything going the Seattle Seahawks way in the first quarter, they only led 8-0 after the first quarter ended.

Fans everywhere waited for the vaunted number one offense to get untracked, but it was the number one defense and special teams, that took the wind out of Denver. It was 22-0 at the half and with Seattle deferring the opening kick-off, Denver kicked it to a healthy and fast Percy Harvin to open the second half. Eighty-seven yards and a few missed tackles and Seattle went up 29-0 with seconds off the clock, game over.

The only question left was how bad this beating ranked in the annals of Super Bowl history. Peyton Manning played hard amid the storm that is the Seahawk defense finishing 34 of 49 for 280 yds with 1 TD and 2 interceptions. Darrius Thomas was right there with him catching 13 passes for 118 yds. and Denvers lone score. Wes Welker snagged 8 for 84 yds. Seattleā€™s super rookie Russell Wilson went 18 of 25 for 206 and 2 tds. with 0 ints. completing 70% of his passes, the first QB in Super Bowl history with those numbers and no MVP award (source-ESPN).

Speed, strength, and just plan old fashioned great defense were too much for the record setting offense on this day as Seattle won Super Bowl XLVII 43-8. Now we watch and see if this was Peyton Mannings last game.
