The Super Bowl final score 2014 may come as a shock to Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks fans alike if they missed part or all of the big game on Sunday night. For those who caught the whole game in one sitting, there were really no big surprises toward the end.
Joining the nearly 80,000 spectators in the MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2, scores of celebrity football fans were nestled in their VIP boxes and seats, watching defeat and victory play out on the field along with the rest of us. Stars like Michael Douglas, John Travolta and David Beckham were in attendance; though we're not sure which team each was rooting for, we do know it was Beckham's first Super Bowl ever! (Rumor Patrol: stories circulating online said boxing legend Floyd Mayweather bet $10 million on a Broncos win, which, if true, would have obviously, in a word, sucked. The boxer denies making such a wager.)

Super Bowl Final Score 2014: Seattle Seahawks Defeat Denver Broncos, 43-8
From the beginning of the game, it was clear Seattle had an advantage. It wasn't immediately clear why, it just began to develop and never stopped. The team from Denver kept allowing turn over of the ball, and suffered numerous interceptions and incomplete passes. Though he set a Super Bowl record for most completions (33) during the Feb. 2 game, Denver QB Peyton Manning also threw a few "passes to nowhere," as we came to call them. Though the Broncos finally scored a touchdown and a two-point conversion late in the 3rd quarter, by the 4th quarter it was pretty clear they weren't going to be able to recover.
The Seahawks, on the other hand, performed beautifully throughout. The team scored within the first 12 seconds of the first and second half of the game, and could not seem to be stopped. Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith was named Super Bowl MVP this year, earning himself not just a nifty title but a brand new luxury truck, as well.
