Super Bowl 2014 ended with the Seattle Seahawks winning the championship tonight, 43-8 over the Denver Broncos, according to a Feb. 2 Chicago Tribune report. For the first time in NFL franchise history, the Seahawks won the Lombardi Trophy, dominating the Broncos and MVP Peyton Manning.
Tonight was the first time a team scored in just 12 seconds, thanks to the energetic Seahawks. “From the start, Seattle was faster and more physical and the Broncos never recovered.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, the start of the second half of the game saw the Seahawks up 29-0 over the Broncos, thanks to Percy Harvin. Slick moves by Jermaine Kearse and Russell Wilson pushed the Seattle team to 36-0.
Even with Peyton Manning and all the hype, the Broncos struggled to survive in the big game with the Seahawks gaining in the first half of the game. “Stellar defense and shaky Bronco plays helped the Seahawks to a 22-0 halftime lead,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
Who would have guessed that the Seahawks would totally dominate Super Bowl 2014 from beginning to end? It was a total and complete beat down, and according to Chicago Tribune, “reminiscent of what the 2000 Ravens did to the Giants in Super Bowl XXXV and what the 1985 Bears did to the Patriots in Super Bowl XX.”
All was not lost for the Bronos, star player Manning played record setting games during regular season and scored his fifth MVP award on Saturday.
